“Meet the Predators” seems like a great idea for a faux 90s sitcom, but alas, that’s just not meant to be. What is though is Shane Black’s upcoming film, The Predator, and right now we have your first look at the men behind the monster(s).
As reported by AVP Galaxy, IMDB has listed stuntman Kyle Strauts as the man brining the intergalactic hunter to life. The site goes on to report that fellow stuntman and dancer Brian A. Prince maybe donning the suit as well, a rumor fueled by the image of the two of them you see below that Strauts posted on Instagram with the caption “Training with my fellow giant! Can’t wait to work together!”
The rumors don’t stop there though… a leaked synopsis (which has since been removed) indicates we may even be seeing a ten-foot tall genetically enhanced and more advanced Predator thrown into the mix. Of course this could all be bullshit but that does sound kind of cool, no?
Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, and Trevante Rhodes star. Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing.
In The Predator, which will be rated R, Munn is playing a scientist opposite Holbrook’s Special Forces commando.
Look for The Predator in theaters on February 9, 2018.
