There are still plenty of people sceptical that yet another attempt to reboot the Predator franchise will work. However, this time there is hope, as Shane Black (Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys) is writing and directing the film.
Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown and Thomas Jane are already set to star. They’ve now been joined by Chuck and Dexter’s Yvonne Strahovski, as well as Game Of Thrones’ Alfie Allen.
Not a vast amount is known about the plot, although Holbrook will be the main character, with Strahovski as his ex-wife. They come into conflict again when their son (Tremblay) is drawn into the battle between Holbrook and an alien creature. It’s now clear who Allen will be.
Shooting has just started in Vancouver, with a February 2018 release date set.
