I don't know about Willem Dafoe for Grandpa Schackleford.  He has the creepiness down, but could he pull of the strength that grandpa has.  Remember he is the old southern gentlemen that one instantly respects, like the WWII vets that even Owens dad would salute.  I just don't see that from Dafoe.
I would vote for Clint Eastwood for grandpa.  He has that strength.
I like Kate Beckinsale for Julie.  The could use make up to make her look a little younger, although it wouldn't take much, and the more natural for the scene where she will pay Julies mom.  She already has the kick@ss attitude and I sit through most anything to see here in tight body armor.

Lord, make me fast and accurate.  Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me.  Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to harm to me and mine.  Let not my last thought be

    Gentlemen, why has no one yet mentioned Lance Henriksen for this movie?  He has the acting chops AND the scary looks.

    Um a voice actor?  Maybe for the ancients...

    And Colm Meaney and Tommy Flanagan are awesome.  I just don't know what they could do.  Who they could be...  um?

    Hmm...

    Maybe Jon Voight as Grandpa Shackleford.

    I'm thinking Sam Elliott as Ray.

    Maybe Vin Diesel as Owen.

    Sam Elliot I could see. Everyone else, no way!

    Voight's too much of a pansy IMHO to be a Monster Hunter. Has he ever been in any serious action roles?

    Vin Diesel: Hell no! Every single movie he's played the lead protagonist in has been horrible!

    I was shocked too but one of my female officers who's into big dudes like the Rock etc, told me about it when we were talking about characters for a movie much like this thread. I looked into it and its true.

    True like the celebrity gossip rag said it's true, or true like he has publicly come out?

    edit: when you said o-ring at first, I was trying to remember if there was something colossally stupid in the Fast and the Furious movies involving an o-ring.

    He's probably rich enough that he could afford to commute there and back daily (you know, ignoring the issue of how long it would take), and if there was someplace where he would be less recognized, it would make sense to me for him to be going there as well. Around here, more than half of the people dating him would be trying to get dirt on him to blackmail him with or get a bunch of money from a divorce settlement, and most of the rest just would want to be dating a rich person.
