Shane Black’s fourth directed film comes with much anticipation as the film auteur returns to the franchise in which he has a supporting role as well as writing credits. The Predator will be the fourth of the solo Predator films to hit theaters with all, but the first one receiving less than stellar reviews. Black has made some of the better films of the last few years with his signature work on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, and the criminally under-seen The Nice Guys.
Starring in the film is Boyd Holbrook of Narcos fame and can be seen as the main villain in Logan heading to theaters this March. Rounding out the cast is Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Olivia Munn, Keegan Michael-Key, Sterling K. Brown, and Room standout, Jacob Tremblay.
Black went onto his Twitter to share the cast photo:
Breaking away from the classic “buff dudes” from the original film, Black has made the film or more temporary, yet still a referential film for the most part. Fans haven’t been too pleased with the addition of young star Jacob Tremblay, not because the kid isn’t talented beyond his peers (no seriously), but because the rumor is that Tremblay’s character could be an autistic boy is a savant that can understand language which could leak a plot point for how they crew takes down the alien hunter.
