Thomas Jane Reveals More ‘The Predator’ Story Details

In Shane Black’s The Predator, releasing next year, a group of unsuspecting humans slowly realize that fierce hunter-aliens are in their midst, this time in a suburban setting.

Speaking with Shadow NationThomas Jane spilled more character/story details.

We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq war or whatever. But we’re all fucking crazy so we go to the VA hospital to get our meds,” Jane told the site. “We’re all like shellshocked, PTSD… soldiers. We’re at the VA hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this…somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get thrown onto the bus to go down to the hospital and they throw this other guy on the bus too.

And he’s a guy they’ve actually marked to kill him because he’s seen a UFO, he’s seen the Predator ships come down so they lock him up and throw him in with us lunatics,” he continued. “They’re going to take that bus, drive it down to a ditch and shoot us all just to get rid of this one guy. But, of course, we take the bus over and we’re all like ‘fuck that man, let’s go kill these fucking Predators ourselves’ and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there’s these aliens out there.

Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Edward James Olmos, Trevante Rhodes, Augusto Aguilera, Alfie Allen, and Yvonne Strahovski also star.

Jake Busey is playing the son of Gary Busey’s Predator 2 character.

The Predator arrives in theaters August 3, 2018.

    PTSD again?? like the turd that Iron Crap 3 was?? Those Tony panic attacks were so bad… I can’t even, if I see this would be for Thomas Jane only, such an underrated actor.

    • Christopher Nickerson

      I will agree to disagree about Iron man 3, however I agree completely about Thomas Jane. He is highly underrated and never seems to get the props he deserves

    • Iron Man 3 was bad altogether. Easily the worst Marvel Studios film, and much of it was just nonsense.

      • Evan3

        I mean, it was was bad. But Iron Man 2 is still easily the worst on record (or Incredible Hulk).

        • I actually thought Incredible Hulk was pretty good.

          • Evan3

            I just watched Guardians 2 last night and I’ll put that in the running for worst Marvel effort.

          • If we include TV shows (so far, this has only been about movies), I think Inhumans easily takes the cake. Marvel Studios has an impressive track record, but it’s hardly as spotless as people claim.

  • Necro

    Maybe I missed something in everything that I’ve read about for this film so far, but I thought it was only one ‘Predator’ not multiple ones.

  • G.A. McGillivray

    So then… the Government knows about the Predators – and instead of just killing this witness – they decide to put him in a group, on a bus, full of war hardened crazy killers and try and drive them down somewhere and then shoot them. Sounds like a X-Files episode to me…..

  • ScaryLarryV

    Other than Jake busey as Peter Keyes son , the rest of the movie seem dumb

  • Why would the Predators attack mentally traumatised soldiers? Aren’t they supposed to be honourable killers that hunt for the thrill of a challenge? This makes me worried that the filmmakers don’t really get what the Predators are about. Then again, this is the same guy who directed Iron Crap 3

  • Seems interesting the concept. Needs to go back to the “alpha” male-ness that the first film had and not be all quips/jokes. But either way Thomas Jane is awesome IMO so I’ll give it a try.

  • Evan3

    The more I hear about this, the more awful it sounds. I don’t see how this will appeal at all to either the casual moviegoer or hardcore fan.

  • GunsOfNavarone

    This sounds bad. I know Shane Black is a good writer / director but at some point, all these legendary greats start delivering drivel. George Lucas, Ridley Scott, John Carpenter… I wonder whether this is going to be one of Black’s worst. I’d love it to be great but the info thus far is not making it sound good.

    So.. Let me get this straight.. A guy sees predator ships so “they” mark to kill him and throw him in a bus with war veterans who are going to a hospital to get meds but at the same time are also gonna get shot? Umm what? Was Thomas Jane high when he gave this interview? I didn’t get shit from what he said.

    First of all, who wants to kill the guy who saw the UFOs – the predators, the government or both? And second, “fuck that man, let’s kill these fucking predators ourselves”? Again.. Umm what?

    I really hope this guy is messing around cuz this sounds so ridiculous my forehead hurts from face-palming.
