Trevante Rhodes, one of the stars of A24’s Moonlight, has joined the cast of Shane Black’s The Predator, what THR is calling “20th Century Fox’s reboot of the alien action movie series.”
Get this: Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the story sees the popular stalker alien, first seen in the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger pic titled simply Predator, in an environment that audiences have not seen: the suburbs. Yes, the suburbs. But I refuse to question Black, who has yet to fail us as film fans.
Rhodes joins Boyd Holbrook, who is leading an ensemble that also includes Olivia Munn.
Rhodes will play the best friend of Holbrook’s character; both are said to be ex-Marines.
Black is directing the project and wrote the script with Fred Dekker.
A shooting start later this winter is being planned.
