Shane Black Shares New Photo of ‘The Predator’s Prey
One of our most anticipated upcoming films is The Predator, Shane Black’s sorta-sequel to the ’80s sci-fi action classic, which boasts a pretty impressive cast — including Trevante Rhodes, one of the breakout stars of recent Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight. (It feels good to type that.) Black has been keeping fans up to date with production on the sequel via his social media accounts, and his latest update from the set comes in the form of a new photo featuring the cast (or some of them), and our first look at Alfie Allen and Thomas Jane.
The Game of Thrones star and former Punisher pose along with Boyd Holbrook (who can currently be seen on the big screen in Logan), Keegan-Michael Key, and what appears to be recent casting addition Augusto Aguilera:
There’s a lot to be excited about here: It’s a new Shane Black movie. It’s a new Predator movie. It’s probably going to be the best thing Thomas Jane has done in a while. It’s certainly going to be fun to watch. It’s also worth noting that Black’s connections to the franchise go way back to the beginning, when he provided uncredited script rewrites for the 1987 classic and had a small supporting role opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger (who is most likely not returning for the sequel, by the way).
The Predator also stars Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Sterling K. Brown and Yvonne Strahovski, and is scheduled to arrive (with an R-rating, no less) on February 9, 2018.
