As Shane Black prepares his Vancouver shoot of The Predator, he’s just made another addition to the cast of the reboot. Game of Thrones‘ Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy in the series, has been cast as an ex-Marine helping the main group in their attempt to kill the Predator.
Earlier this week, Black released a picture of himself with the cast in full costume, but with Allen’s casting there could possibly be more to follow.
Not much else is known about The Predator other than Black’s confirmation the film will indeed be rated R and seems to be a full-on reboot rather than a sequel to the original 1987 Predator film. Furthermore, lead star Boyd Holbrook also said it is unlikely original star Arnold Schwarzenegger is unlikely to cameo in the new film.

Long after he played Hawkins in the original, Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys) is returning to the Predator franchise as director and co-writer, re-uniting with fellow Monster Squad scribe Fred Dekker, on the highly anticipated The Predator, a sequel to, and not total reboot, of the classic sci-fi series. Filming is kicking off today, and Black has shared with us the first lookout the movie’s cast, made up of lead Boyd Holbrook (next seen as Pierce, leader of the Reavers, in Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan Michael-Key (one part of comedic duo Key & Peele), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. Simpson), and Room’s Jacob Tremblay. Missing from the image is The Punisher himself, Thomas Jane, whose involvement was announced few weeks back. No reason is given for the military garb, but Shane has »

Technically this isn’t new information as director Shane Black has already revealed his reboot of The Predator would be rated R, but it’s always good to get updates and reassurance. Although this time Shane took it up a notch, tweeting that PG-13 is for pussies.
And, just to be clear… PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed… a lot.

Predator is one of those franchises, like Terminator, Robocop, and Alien, that is never likely to die. The film has spawned numerous sequels and offspring at this point, but fans are still excited to see what Shane Black will do with his take.
In an interview with We Got this Covered, The Predator actor Boyd Holbrook spoke about the film and declared the flick would not be another sequel, more of a new take on things, and that we shouldn’t be shocked if Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t make an appearance.
“I’m currently working on Predator,” said Holbrook. “It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, »

Perhaps one of the greatest and indeed surprising encounters in Daredevil season 2 was the moment when Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle was thrown in jail, only to strike up an unlikely alliance with Kingpin, the criminal overlord played close to perfection by Vincent D’Onofrio.
That nail-biting tension culminated in a good old-fashioned brawl between the two villains, leading to The Punisher escaping back onto the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. It’s here that we expect Netflix’s planned solo series to kick into gear, but given the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Frank Castle’s clash with Kingpin, one might assume that the Powers That Be at Marvel and Netflix would find a workaround to ensure Vincent D’Onofrio reprises as the mob boss later this year. Sadly, that’s not the case, with D’Onofrio debunking those rumors via Twitter.

The Walking Dead returns in the UK this Monday the 13th of February. Here's what we're hoping the new episodes will tell us...
Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead season 7A.
As the cold, wet month of February trudges on there is at least one blood-soaked treat to look forward to, as the second half of The Walking Dead’s seventh season is nearly upon us. After some levelled criticism at the drop of pace following the head popping debut, 7B needs to bring together all the plot strands it’s been weaving and speed things towards the inevitable war. We thought it timely to see what questions need to be answered, as the Rick rebellion is now fully underway…
How are alliances going to form quickly enough to counter Negan’s wrath? »

And on the subject of Thanos, Marvel supremo Kevin Feige has been discussing his role in the film, stating that “you could almost go as far as to say he is the main character.” Read Feige’s comments in full here.

Fan of Mma or not, there’s no denying that Ufc star Conor McGregor is a hot commodity. WWE wants him in some sort of role, Game of Thrones showrunners have cast him in a bit part, and now it’s come to light that due to money and filming duration issues, he has turned down a key role in Shane Black’s The Predator.
AVPgalaxy has quoted the following from McGregor who spoke at An Experience With, stating: “I’ll tell you there’s a lot of offers that I’ve turned down. I got offered The Predator movie. There’s a new Predator movie coming out and the guys came to me – did you see that horse thing I’ve done, the horse racing? That was like three days’ solid work for a hell of a lot of money, for three days. During that three-day course, the people »

Shane Black’s reboot of The Predator has been gaining traction and adding a host of actors to its cast in the last few weeks, and just added someone a bit unexpected. According to THR, the newest person who will go up against the film’s eponymous alien hunter is none other than Room breakout star Jacob Tremblay.
The eleven-year old may not seem like the most obvious choice for a film like this, but some new character and story details suggest he’ll actually have a pretty big part to play. According to the new report, Tremblay will play the son of Boyd Holbrook’s main ex-marine protagonist. Holbrook’s character reportedly discovers the existence of “fierce aliens but that no one believes they exist.” Tremblay’s character is autistic and bullied in school, “but becomes a key player in the fight due to his preternatural ability to learn languages. »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, former Hung star Thomas Jane has joined the cast of Shane Black’s The Predator, meaning the guy who once played The Punisher is now going to be on the run from a relentless murder monster of a different sort. Of course, we don’t actually know who he’s playing, so he could be on the Predator’s team, or just someone who is completely unrelated to the main plot. But both of those options seem unlikely.

Details on Jane’s role have yet to be revealed, so it’s anyone’s guess on how he could be playing. He joins recent cast additions Sterling K. Brown (This is Us, The People v. O.J. Simpson), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight). Also starring are Logan actor Boyd Holbrook and X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Olivia Munn.
If you’re noticing a wave of new Predator news lately, that’s because the film will begin rolling cameras next month, as it moves toward its tentative February 9, 2018 release date. So, expect some more news as production officially goes underway. »

Plot details are still being kept a little to Black’s chest, but rather than being in the jungle or the hard streets of Los Angeles, this one will reportedly take place in suburbia.

He once was The Punisher, but even Frank Castle might have a tough time taking down a Yautja. Following the news that he will play a key role in the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1922, Thomas Jane is now reportedly setting his sights on Shane Black’s The Predator.
According to THR, Jane (The Expanse) is in “final negotiations” to play a part in 20th Century Fox’s The Predator. It’s not yet know what role Jane would play in the film, which is expected to begin shooting in Vancouver this February, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details as they are revealed.
The Predator is scheduled for a February 9th, 2018 theatrical release from 20th Century Fox. »

The cast of Shane Black’s upcoming Predator remake just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it? Already set to star Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn and Keegan-Michael Key, among others, the action film has just added another impressive individual to its roster in the form of Thomas Jane.
The Hollywood Reporter are the ones breaking the news, and though they don’t have specifics on Jane’s role, they do note that the project is quickly putting together the rest of its cast before it heads into production next month in Vancouver. As such, we can expect to hear more in the very near future.
Though he’ll likely fall into one of the supporting roles, Jane’s involvement in The Predator is great news. He hasn’t done a studio film in a while and given that he’s one of Hollywood’s most underrated talents, »
