Everyone loves a villain, especially when those villains are played by Adrien Brody (Predators) and Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian). Brody is in talks to antagonize Gerard Butler (300) in Motor City, a revenge thriller scripted by Chad St. John (The Punisher: Dirty Laundry) and directed by Albert Hughes (Fro Hell).  Momoa will star in Wolves, the directorial debut of David Hayter, the writer of 2000’s X-Men. The supernatural flick has Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) going up against Momoa in a battle of werewolves (Good luck, Till).  Hit the jump for more on both pictures.

merritt-patterson-wolvesVariety reports that Brody will take over the villainous role in Motor City.  So far, it looks like Butler and the recently added Mickey Rourke (The Expendables) are the only locks for the film, so we’ll see what happens with Brody.  The picture previously courted Jake Gyllenhaal, Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Clive Owen, Amber Heard and Gary Oldman and none of them are currently associated with the project.  Motor City follows a felon who goes out for revenge on the people who framed him after he’s released.  The picture stars production in Atlanta on September 17th and will be released by Warner Bros. in April of 2013.

In other villainous news, Variety also reports that Momoa will play the werewolf patriarch of Lupine Ridge, a small town with a history of supernatural events.  Till’s character, a werewolf falsely accused of murdering his own parents, attempts to find sanctuary in the town when he goes on the run.  They also report that Merritt Patterson (The Hole) has joined the production.  Writer/director Hayter will begin production on Wolves next month in Toronto.  X-Men: First Class make-up supervisor Dave Elsey will design the creature effects and make-up for Wolves, as well. Check out what he had to say about the violent and bloody picture in his recent interview with Steve.
