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. A bit shady, crazy, surviving on his own, kind of a ratty character. I didn't know anything about his role, and we all went to see the rehearsal. It was quite a surprise.
Changchien also spoke about his own character, Hanzo, who must find a way to survive on this alien planet.
He's basically a mean yakuza. A yakuza abducted by the Predators. Very much feared and very skilled. Excellent gun man and also competent with a sword."

Predators was released July 9th, 2010 and stars Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Trejo, Louis Ozawa Changchien. The film is directed by Nimród Antal.
