Fox is in talks with “Logan” star Boyd Holbrook for the actor to star in, write, and executive produce the near-future thriller “The Thirst.”

John Davis, who has a first-look deal at Fox, is producing the project based on an original idea from Holbrook, which takes place in a world where the water is scarce. Holbrook proposed the project during production of Fox’s reboot of “The Predator” to Fox executive Matt Reilly, who is overseeing the project for the studio.

Holbrook portrayed the villain Donald Pierce in “Logan” and plays lead character Quinn McKenna in “The Predator,” in which his former Marine and Special Forces military commando discovers the existence of the Predators but finds that no one believes they exist. Fox is opening “The Predator” on Sept. 14. Davis produced with Lawrence Gordon and Joel Silver.
