A first-look at the Robert Rodriguez-scripted Predators sequel is now available, courtesy of a few behind-the-scenes photographs that were leaked on the forums of fansite AVPgalaxy.net.
The photos — which reveal Adrien Brody, Oleg Taktarov, Alice Braga, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and Rodriguez on the set of the Nimrod Antal-directed movie — seem to be taken by Taktarov's phone, considering the hazy quality of the photos and the frequency of Taktarov posing with other cast members.

In related Predators news, a recent interview with Louis Ozawa Changchien, who plays the character of former yakuza agent Hanzo in the movie, revealed to Gigazine some details about the mysterious role that Laurence Fishburne will playing.
We were nagging them everyday like "Is Fishburne really coming?" but all of us were excited to find out indeed he is. There were many rumours at first, like it will be Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, or even Arnold Schwarzenegger, but I'm glad Laurence was casted in the end. It's a really interesting role, quite different from Morpheus [in The Matrix]. A bit shady, crazy, surviving on his own, kind of a ratty character. His character managed to survive 10 years on the alien's planet living in a cave.
Changchien did not reveal if Fishburne's role meant that there will be no cameo for Schwarzenegger.
