The Predator director/co-writer Shane Black took to Twitter early Monday to offer the first look at the film’s cast. The photo features the team of new alien hunters, which includes Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn and Keegan-Michael Key.
“Partial cast… beautiful human beings, good people. Also, killers,” Black tweeted, adding that filming began today in Vancouver. In additional tweets, Black also confirmed that the sci-fi thriller will be rated R.
The Predator reboot is co-written by Black and Fred Dekker, who previously worked together on the Monster Squad script. Plot details are unknown, but the film is part of the original Predator franchise, following 1987’s Predator, 1990’s Predator 2 and 2010’s Predators. In 2004, the franchise also launched a crossover series with Alien and released Alien vs. Predator, followed by Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.
The Predator is slated for a February 9, 2018 release, via Fox.
