Thomas Jane in Final Talks to Join Shane Black's New PREDATOR Film
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys director Shane Black has been adding actors to his new Predator movie over the past couple of weeks as he prepares to start shooting next month, and it looks like he's not quite finished rounding out the cast yet. THR reports that Thomas Jane is in final negotiations to join the project. If the deal goes through, he'd join The People vs. O.J. Simpson's Sterling K. Brown, Logan's Boyd Holbrook, Keegan-Michael Key, and Moonlight's Trevante Rhodes as a group of humans facing off against the alien threat. Olivia Munn plays a scientist.
There's still some confusion about whether or not this movie will take place in the suburbs. THR reports that it will, while Black himself has denied that claim. So there's still a lot about this movie that we don't know (almost everything, in fact), but I'm hoping that Black — who had a role in the original film — will indeed bring his brand of action and humor to this new entry in the franchise. The movie is set for release on February 9, 2018.
