Reiko Ayelsworth and Steven Pasquale have been cast as the leads for the sequel to Alien vs. Predator, which is currently imaginatively titled Alien vs. Predator 2.
Filming on the movie begins in Vancover in October and will continue until December. Casting has been hiring some very tall actors (up to 7′) to play the Predators apparently.
Aliens vs. Predator 2 will be directed by Greg and Colin Strause who have previously served as visual effects supervisors on films like X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic Four and 300. The screenplay is by Shane Salerno who wrote Armageddon.
Reiko Ayelsworth (34) has previously starred in seasons 4 and 5 of 24 as well as appearing on CSI, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and the West Wing. Steven Pasquale has appeared in several episodes of 6 Feet Under and Rescue Me.
Of course the AvP franchise is really about the monsters, not about the human characters.
