Punisher Star Thomas Jane in Talks to Join The Predator


Director Shane Black's upcoming "Predator" reboot has nabbed yet another fan-favorite actor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Thomas Jane ("The Punisher") is in final negotiations to join the cast of the reboot. Unlike recent casting announcements for the film, however, details surrounding Jane's character were not immediately available.

Should the deal close, Jane would be the latest to join the impressive cast alongside the likes of Sterling K. BrownKeegan-Michael Key and Boyd Holbrook. Brown's character is that of a government agent, who'll have to work with Holbrook's ex-Marine to take on the extraterrestrial creatures.

Unlike the original film which took place in the jungle and featured a lone Predator, this reboot is expected to take place in suburbia, where the characters will have to confront more than one Predator.

Jane is perhaps most famous for his turn as Frank Castle in 2004's "The Punisher," directed by Jonathan Hensleigh. In recent years, he's starred in Syfy's "The Expanse" -- a series based on the books by James S. A. Corey -- and just recently wrapped on Stephen King's "1922" for Netflix.

"The Predator," which will be co-written by Black and Fred Dekker, is set to begin production next month in Vancouver, and will hit the big screen on February 9, 2018.
