"The Predator" is back! And there's a whole new group of people ready to take him out.
Writer/director Shane Black is overseeing a sequel to the franchise, which was born in 1987 with the original "Predator" movie. Yesterday, he shared the first image of the cast in costume, including Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, "Room" darling Jacob Tremblay, and "Moonlight" breakout Trevante Rhodes. Black noted that this is only the partial cast, though:
Partial cast... beautiful human beings, good people. Also, killers. Cameras roll today. Follow me on Twitter for updates. Wish us luck. pic.twitter.com/vYGgGesW0Y— Shane Black (@BonafideBlack) February 20, 2017
Black takes on the first film in the franchise in seven years (after 2010's "Predators") and has said it is not a reboot, but a sequel. He also tweeted a few days ago an indication that the movie will definitely be rated R. "Spines bleed a lot," he wrote.
"The Predator" is currently filming and is set for a Feb. 9, 2018 release.
