I guess it should come as no surprise that Shane Black’s The Predator would have humor in it. All Shane Black movies do. That’s a big part of what makes them great.
But until now, it never quite occurred to me what a Shane Black film this new Predator thing would be. According to Variety, Keegan-Michael Key has joined the cast. We don’t know who he will play, which makes sense as we know very little about the plot at this time. But I imagine he’s there to be at least a tiny bit funny.
Or maybe not! It could be he’s pulling a Danny McBride here and doing something different than we might expect. But given the Shane Black of it all, I bet he gets some pretty good one-liners before having his spine ripped out.
If nothing else, The Predator continues to be a movie I’m super excited about. Right now it’s expected to open February, 9 of next year, so fingers crossed we’re all still around to see it.
