It's been nearly a decade since release of the last film in the Predator franchise -- Predators, starring Adrien Brody and Alice Braga -- but that's about to change with The Predator, a revival from The Other Guys and Iron Man 3 director Shane Black. Details on the film have slowly been trickling out over the last couple of months, and now actor Thomas Jane has spilled additional information about the plot.
In an interview with Shadow Nation, Jane revealed that he'll be playing one of several war veterans headed to a VA hospital to get their meds. Things go pretty bad during their group therapy, as one of the characters has apparently been marked for death by a Predator. "We’re at the VA hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…he’s seen a UFO, he’s seen the Predator ships come down so they lock him up and throw him in with us lunatics." The soldiers decide, in Jane's words, "'f--k that man, let’s go kill these fucking Predators ourselves’ and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there’s these aliens out there.”
They may be trained veterans, but killing a Predator is definitely easier said than done.
Arriving August 3, 2018, The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Yvonne Strahovski, Jacob Tremblay, Jake Busey, Trevante Rhoades, and Edward James Olmos.
