The Predator nears its shooting start date

Shane Black’s take on the Predator franchise is well into pre-production at this point, with a few casting rumours cropping up recently. The latest of which indicates that Olivia Munn is in negotiations to star in the series.

Recently reports emerged that Boyd Holbrook (Logan, Narcos) will star in the film as a Special Forces commando, while Munn who is coming off her outing as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, will take the role of a scientist.

The new film is scheduled to start filming in February 2017, and was recently rumoured to take place in a suburban setting, however Black reached out in response to those reports saying that’s not the case, but he also didn’t offer any clues as to where his film might be set.

It’s already been over 6 years since a Predator film last made it to the big screen and there’s around 18 months to go for the Predator to make another appearance. 

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
