Walk of Fame Honoree Brett Ratner’s Love of Cinema Is a Driving Force in His Career

19 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brett Ratner loves cinema. When speaking with the 47-year-old filmmaker, it’s abundantly clear that movies are unspooling through his veins, and if our discussions felt more like two movie buffs just enjoying great conversation, it’s because of his general enthusiasm for the medium.

“It was always my dream to direct movies,” he says, rarely pausing for a breath. “I always knew I’d do it. I had the drive and the desire. I was determined. But I never knew I’d be making movies of this size, stuff like the ‘Rush Hour’ films and ‘X-Men’ and ‘Red Dragon.’ When I was in film school, I knew I wanted to make entertaining movies. But I don’t think I could have prepared for how fast my rise would be. I was 26 when I got my first film.”

But it was before he’d set foot on a movie set »

Keegan-Michael Key Joins Fox’s ‘Predator’ Reboot

6 January 2017 10:29 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Keegan-Michael Key is joining “Moonlight” star Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook and Olivia Munn on Fox’s “The Predator,” a reboot of the “Predator” alien action franchise that launched in 1987.

Shane Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing. Fox has already slotted “The Predator” for a Feb. 9, 2018 opening.

Plot details are under wraps other than the usual plot of an extraterrestrial monster facing off against earthlings. “Narcos” star Holbrook replaced Benicio del Toro to become the first major casting, announced in October, and Rhodes came on board this week.

The original was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse Ventura as commandos attempting to rescue hostages while being stalked in a jungle in Central America by a fearsome extra-terrestrial, played by Kevin Peter Hall.

Shane Black's The Predator Adds Key And Peele Actor/Comedian Keegan-Michael Key

6 January 2017 9:54 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to THR, Keegan-Michael Key is in final talks for a role in Shane Black's The Predator. Key's casting comes on the heels of the announcement that Moonlight's Trevante Rhodes had also signed on as an ex-marine, who teams up with his pal (Boyd Holbrook) and Olivia Munn's scientist to take on the iconic alien hunters.  All we know about Key's character for the moment is that he's "a man who teams up with Holbrook and Rhodes to fight the creatures." Key is probably best known as being one half of comedy duo Key and Peele alongside Jordan Peele, but he's also appeared in the likes of Parks and Recreation, Tomorrowland, and Why Him. Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker, while John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are producing. The Predator is currently set for release on February 9th, 2018. »

Moonlight Breakout Trevante Rhodes Joins The Cast Of Shane Black's The Predator

5 January 2017 11:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The latest addition to the cast of Shane Black's The Predator is Trevante Rhodes, who played the adult Chiron in Barry Jenkins' Moonlight. We don't have a name for his character yet, but THR reports that he will play the best friend of Boyd Holbrook's lead, who are both ex-marines. Olivia Munn will also star. Though specific plot details remain under wraps, we did recently hear a rumor that the action would take place in the suburbs. Now, Black himself seemed to debunk this at the time but THR mentions it again here, so perhaps there is some truth to it after all. Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker, while John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are producing. The Predator is currently set for release on February 9th, 2018. »
