The cast of Shane Black’s Predator movie is shaping up nicely, with Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes and Keegan-Michael Key all confirmed as part of the impressive ensemble. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Thomas Jane is close to signing on for the project.
Details about the movie are being kept under lock and key, including who Jane is playing. Holbrook and Rhodes are on board as two ex-marines, with Key cast as one of their allies. Munn will also star as a scientist.
As previously reported, The Predator will be sequel to the 1987 John McTiernan-directed classic and set in present day. There’s been no official word on whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as Dutch, but the actor has mentioned that he was planning to have lunch with Black to discuss the possibility of returning.
Production on The Predator is set to begin next month for a February 9, 2018 release.
