With Shane Black’s The Predator comes a whirlwind of questions, rumors, and speculations. One of which is whether or not we’ll see Arnold Schwarzenegger returning as an older version of his character Dutch from the first film.
We Got This Covered caught up with star Boyd Holbrook to get the skinny on the Ahnold rumor and more…
“I’m currently working on Predator. It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real. It’s real fresh. I don’t think you’re going to see [Arnold] Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. It’s horror, science-fiction and a western.”
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.
