Since the beginning of filming there has been a rumor that Arnold Schwarzenegger may make a cameo appearance somewhere in Predators.

Oleg Taktarov, the actor that plays Nikolai in Predators, took a dozen photos on the set of the film. Someone -- and we don't know if it was Taktarov or someone else who had access to his camera -- uploaded all of the photos to the web and they're now splashed across a hundred websites and growing by the hour. The photos show one of the alien sets on the Predator homeworld, several of the film's actors, Robert Rodriguez, the film's director Nimrod Antal and several of the body actors in their full Predator costumes (and also partially out of them.) In other words, Fox's publicity department is probably freaking out about this being the public's first look at the film -- even though what we've seen looks alright and promising.
That photo to the left is of Adrien Brody and Taktarov hanging out on the set. A Predator can be seen between the two men in the background.Comment on this Scoop (0)
