Are These the Men Playing ‘The Predator’? Plus a HUGE Rumor!

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.

    I just hope they’ll do away with that awful “you’ll never see him coming” poster. Everything else sounds great. Just bring me Dutch.

    • Wilson Bro

      “You’ll never see him coming”? Does he keep the door shut when he’s having a toss?

  • Alanmac

    So is the “HUGE” rumor referencing a new bigger predator?

  • DonHenschel

    Make him even bigger, so that he can fight Kong or Godzilla.

    • Mike tantatelli

      Dude!!!! Fuck yes!!!! The battle of the ages!!!!!!

  • Wilson Bro

    They’re clearly taking the Roger Corman approach of “big is scary”.

    • Kristoffer Groves

      Then they might as well go full Corman and lower the budget to $5000. They can have Clint Howard and Lisa Rinna fight the predator.

      • Wilson Bro

        Howard would be throwing his head back in a Balock laugh at this!

      • Yes to that!

        I’d like to see the beastie from Without Warning (which if you don’t know is a move that – ahem – inspired Predator) actually turn up and kick off. It would be kinda cool of Kevin Peter Hall reprised his roles as both aliens for fans of both movies (ME ME ME!)

        If you haven’t seen 1980’s Without Warning, and are a fan of the original Predator – check it out. It”s lower budget but still worth a watch.
        Hell, even check out the movie Without Warning from 1994 too – nowt to do with the other movie but a cool precursor to the “found footage – real life” movies that would follow a few years later.

    a 10 foot told predator, well shit. I hope this movie will also be better than that remake it was weak.

    • Saturn

      There isn’t a Predator remake.
      I suppose you mean Predators…..
      Similar theme, with similar stuff happening, in similar surroundings doesn’t mean it’s a remake.
      Otherwise F13th and GODZILLA have been remade countless times…..

      I haven’t revisited Predators since checking it out at the cinema a few years back, but seem to remember enjoying it a lot more than Predator 2 and the 2 AvP “classics”.

      • zombie84_41

        Ya wasn’t a fan of either of those films. I only like the first two predator films. AVP could of been good but the ideas were all messed up. If they took the ideas of both of them and made a movie maybe it could work. The 2nd AVP would of worked and been good if the movie wasn’t so damn dark.

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      Ditto. I watched Predators one time. I don’t think I can recall a single scene of it aside from the opening. Very forgettable.

      • zombie84_41

        LOL same, I forgot it existed along with that AVP movie both of them LOL but the first AVP was a little better then the 2nd one but the 2nd one was a little better then the first if you get what I mean. Like some things in the first one were awesome, but the 2nd one it was just really fucking dark and it ruined the film. But the ending was amazing.

    Is it supposed to be Queen Predator? I’ll have to wait and see….

    • Daniel Anderson

      You hit me with a fond memory, at least looking back at it. A friend of my mothers once told me she was an actress. I was probably about 7 or 8 years old and was super stoked on Alien and predator franchises. And I was talking about an AvP comic I picked up. She fooled me into thinking she played the queen predator in Predator 3: Alien versus Predator. The confused looks by those at blockbuster and hollywood that followed were disappointing, needless to say I was child mad.

  • Peter Kushing

    Why cant Arnold be involved in this somehow? Was he ever asked, or did he say no? You cant fuck with that first one.

  • SKILZS2000

    Who cares if Arnold is in it. Everybody is tired of the guy who’s been in this country since 1968 and still has that stupid accent.

  • Rez

    I’m all in on this…sounds great….Black and Dekker together! I couldn’t help it

  • Mike tantatelli

    Predator is my favorite movie of all time. I am so fucking stoked for this. “Hawkins” is gonna make us proud lol.

  • Halloween_Vic
