Ain't It Cool News (

Laurence Fishburne -vs- PREDATORS!!

Merrick here...
Over at JoBLo, the lovely Jenna Busch has a scoop from the set of PREDATORS. Seems Laurence Fishburne will be joining the cast of the film.
We didn't get to see him, but the awesome Laurence Fishburne will be playing the role of Noland. Can't tell you a damn thing about the character, but I think it's safe to say that he's going to kick some serious ass. We'll tell you more the second they lift the embargo.
...says Jenna's report HERE. In the same article, Mike Sampson...evidently not embargoed...shed a little more light on Fishburne's role, saying:
While Jenna might not be able to tell you much about Noland, I know from my own digging that the character has a little experience fighting Predators. While most of our characters are newbies, Noland's been at this game for a while. Obviously much more from the set coming soon so stay tuned!
Everyone who's been to the PREDATORS set so far have been blown away by what they've seen. I can't wait...

    Laurence is FAT in a non PHAT way

    by theebluewolf

    Seriously, the dude has gotten FAT - how can he be like this survivor bad ass dude on the predator planet, when it looks like he's been hittin the local krispy kreme three or four times a day! Maybe he EATS the predators that he kills - you keep what you kill, it is the necromonger way!

  • Dec. 18, 2009, 11:28 a.m. CST

    by MikeTheSpike

    Ha, pillow batting. That's ridiculously accurate. <p> Still, can't begrudge a guy his body. If I made millions all of a sudden, can't exactly say I'd bother hitting the gym.

    Shatner vs. Fishburne

    by Royston Lodge

    I dunno. Lawrence Fishburne hasn't built a career out of self-parody. I think being a badass and a good actor buys him a little slack on that front.

  • Dec. 18, 2009, 11:36 a.m. CST

    He may be a little chubby these days,

    by Playkins

    But at least he can act. I expect this to be just a *little* better than the abortion known the the AVP series.

    I like Fishburne...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...but have never been crazy about the Predator concept even (actually maybe because) I was involved with a project related to the property that went down in "ha, that was nine months of your life" flames. I'll watch it regardless, because of Fishburne and because really I watch it all.

  • Dec. 18, 2009, 11:43 a.m. CST

    Oh... I hope the Predators fight an Alien creature...

    by jimmy rabbitte

    I read the script on

    by misnomer

    Absolutely loved it, but felt the ending needed a little work. Great to see some money going into this after the lacklustre avp movies. Laurence Fisburnes an interesting choice for the character...I kind of envisaged Noland as an older guy, like the actor who played Blades mentor.

    Can't be worse than AVP: Requiem

    by lochkray

    One of the worst movies of all time. They could take Lawrance Fishburn, put him in a fat suit...hell, put him in the grandma fat suit from that shitty Martin Lawrence movie...and it still could not be worse than AVP: Requiem. Even the title didn't make any sense. You would think that would have killed all future potential for either franchise, but god bless fox, they won't let them die.

    The characters full name is Noland Harrigan

    by JettL93

    and as you have guessed he's the younger brother of Mike Harrigan, who was played by Danny Glover in the second film. I don't know if any other sites have broken this but i've read the script and he definetly is the brother of danny glover. <P>No major attention is drawn to the fact but there is a scene where several characters are discussing predator legends and Lawrence has several lines about the tales he heard from his older brother, this dialogue also expands on the fate of danny's character (Quoting from memory) "My brother became obsessed in figuring out why they let him live. He spent the rest of his years tracking down every rumoured appeareance of the creatures around the world... until one day he never came back home"<P>It's a small connection to P2 but its nice to know, they are not smashing us over the head with references to the first 2 films

    Who is...

    by BeastOfGevaudan

    ... an awesome writer, associated with the Predator franchise, and doing nothing atm (that I know of)? Shane Black! Bring him back for rewrites and this movie could be better than the original.

    You're RIGHT RR is a bit of a hack, hadn't given it too much tho

    by billybigbollocks

    You're correct. Best of luck to him he's done well for himself, and he ain't no Ratner, but he's no artistic genius.

    We all need to just shut the fuck up. This could be a great film. They could even show Danny and Dutch in flashback cameos. That is a plausible end around.

    Did you guess the black guy? If he's the star role, then he lives till the end. If he's part of the ensemble, well, I guess he's got CSI to get back to.

    Will he be eating a foot-long sandwich all through the movie or just in the first half? I just want to know.

    Fing Pathetic!!

    by OrangeCrush

    My god how many times can you people say the same joke and still be entertained. We get it Fishburne is fat and the first 20 or so comments were actually somewhat amusing. Now its just pathetic. I Guess everything is funny when your living in moms basement.

  • Dec. 19, 2009, 6:27 p.m. CST


    by bueno_bob

    Yes, actually. He did In Good Company and has had cameos in all three "Oceans" movies, in addition to "Traffic", "Mona Lisa Smile" and voice over work for Simpsons, Robot Chicken, etc. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I think he did a writer/producer thing a year or two back also...

  • Dec. 19, 2009, 7 p.m. CST

    So, will Fishburne be calling the predators, "Predators"?

    by CodeName

    Obviously, they're on the predators' turf now. I wonder what the humans are going to call them by. And what do you eat in predator land?

    He's not replacing Arnold...

    by aTwenty7thLetter

    If you haven't read the leaked script you can do so here: No matter how much revising they've done since this draft all the info they release about the film implies they're sticking very closely to the basic premise. And that's unfortunate bc it sucks pretty hard. This is not going to redeem them for the AvP movies. It's just another nail in the coffin. And the Noland character doesn't seem like it was ever intended to be Dutch. And if it was there'd be a lot of fans crying fowl over the way he behaves. Dutch's cameo IS there though and is sufficiently disappointing.

    AICN seems to love this film

    by ganda1f

    But everything I've heard about it sounds awful. Except for the choice of director, which is offset by the fact that Rodriquez is the producer.<br><br>(Once, Rodriquez as producer would have got me excited, but he seems to have become ever more sylised with every film he's done, whereas Predator requires a more down to earth tone.)<br><Br>Then again, anything Rodriquez does seems to get a free pass from Harry and co., so I'll be taking any AICN news regarding this one with a grain of salt.

  • Dec. 20, 2009, 3:42 p.m. CST

    All right, the cast sounds good too...

    by ganda1f

    I'll admit that. Casting sounds good too. Which is why this film could well wind up breaking my poor nerd heart.

    True, Fisburne has put on some weight, but

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    that's just a natural part of the aging process. "I wouldn't go as far as to call the brotha fat, but he's half samoan, what's the nigga gonna do." But seriously folks, Fishburne is a great actor. Would we have kept watching CSI after Petersen's exit if not for him? I don't see how he'll fit in the predator franchise, but if he does I'm sure it will work somehow.

    Not that Fishburne needs to lose weight but...

    by CodeName

    it would make his role more believable IF he is the character who's been stranded on the predator planet to look like he's malnourished. Unless the Predators purposefully feed their prey to make them stronger.
