With filming set to begin soon, director Shane Black’s The Predator has been casting up in recent weeks, and now we may know who is playing the titular character(s).
As scooped by our friends at AvP Galaxy, IMDb just added stuntman Kyle Strauts (The Cabin in the Woods) to the cast of The Predator, and wouldn’t ya know it, he’s listed as playing “Predator.” Strauts, who measures a massive 6’9″ tall, is from Vancouver, where the film is set to be shot, so we can be pretty sure that IMDb isn’t spreading around alternative information here.
Furthermore, the site also reports that fellow stuntman Brian A. Prince (Captain America: Civil War) will also perform inside one of the new Predator suits. The 6’10” Prince, not yet listed on IMDb, recently mentioned on his social media accounts that he’s in Vancouver filming a secret project; the implication here is that there will be more than one Predator in the reboot.
To add to this potential casting news, we figured we’d mention that rumors are currently swirling around the net that there will be a brand new Predator in The Predator… a bigger one than we’ve EVER seen before. The rumors indicate that the film’s new Predator will measure 10-feet tall and be even more badass than all the others, so stay tuned for more info about that.
The cast includes Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes and Olivia Munn. Thomas Jane is also rumored.
Black co-wrote the script with Fred Dekker and is directing.
Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise plans to film in Vancouver this coming February with a release date set for February 9th, 2018.
