Olivia Munn is in talks to star in the latest film in the sci-fi horror franchise, reports THR. If she signs on, the actress will join Boyd Holbrook, who is set to play a Special Forces commando. Munn's would-be character is reportedly a scientist, but with most plot details remaining secret, it's unclear exactly how she'd be involved in the story.
The film stems from a series that launched with 1987's "Predator" and has continued with two sequels and two spinoff movies so far. The upcoming reboot was penned by Shane Black and Fred Dekker and is said to center on an alien-hunter hard at work in none other than the suburbs. Black is also set to direct.
Munn is definitely prepared to take on another action flick. She has appeared in films like "X-Men: Apocalypse," "Ride Along 2," and "Iron Man 2." Next up for her, though, is the upcoming comedy "Office Christmas Party."
The "Predator" reboot is scheduled for release in 2018.
