It’s official – ‘The Predator’ is back.
According to director Shane Black, the upcoming ‘Predator’ sequel has begun filming today… and he couldn’t resist getting a snap with some of its (surely doomed) cast members.
Obviously, the snap quickly made it to social media.
And so we finally have our first look at who will be taking on the iconic sci-fi monster.
“Partial cast…” he revealed via Twitter. “Beautiful human beings, good people. Also, killers. Cameras roll today. Follow me on Twitter for updates. Wish us luck.”
So who’s in the pic?
Sterling K. Brown recently won an Emmy for ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’ and is currently starring in the hit TV show, ‘This is Us’. He’s a fantastic actor who might just be about to make it big… and make an excellent choice for ‘The Predator’.
Trevante Rhodes is best known for the hit movie ‘Moonlight’, and it looks as though he’s about to make a big impression in ‘The Predator’. Clearly, he’s going to be one tough cookie, and he’s obviously heavily armed… but that doesn’t guarantee he’ll survive.
Boyd Holbrook is the star of Netflix’s ‘Narcos’ and he’s about to make it big as one of the villains in the upcoming Logan’ movie. According to reports, he’s technically the film’s lead in ‘The Predator’… so it’s more than likely that he’ll be fighting to the bitter end.
And he may even live.
Olivia Munn is best known for the role of Psylocke in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ but also has quite the internet fanbase. She’s the only woman in the ‘Predator’ sequel line-up… but that definitely doesn’t make her an easy target.
Keegan-Michael Key is best known as one-half of Key & Peele, but he’s no stranger to the big screen, appearing in ‘Let’s Be Cops’, ‘Tomorrowland’ and even lending his voice to ‘The Lego Movie’. His comedy chops suggest a comedic role in ‘The Predator’… and that might not guarantee his survival.
Finally, there’s Jacob Tremblay – best known as the phenomenal child actor in ‘Room’. As the only child in the ensemble, surely he has to survive. I mean, Shane Black isn’t that cruel, right?
But remember, this is only a partial cast photo.
Does this mean we’ll get some more candid pics of the ‘Predator’ cast as they face off against one of cinemas most iconic alien killers? Almost certainly… and either way, we can’t wait to find out more.
The original 1987 ‘Predator’ is a film close to many sci-fi fans hearts, and I’ll be watching this one with great interest. Let’s just hope at least some of them survive.
‘The Predator’ stars Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Shane Black will direct, based on a script he co-wrote with Fred Dekker.
‘The Predator’ heads to cinemas on 2 March 2018.
