The new Predator movie, simply titled The Predator is already something we all need to get excited for. Right off the top, it’s going to be a Shane Black film, co-written by Fred Dekker. That should be enough, but this one doesn’t stop there.
So far, it has a cast including Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, and Trevante Rhodes. Those are all really great actors! But none of them are bonafide, cheesy B-action stars.
Have no fear. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Predator may have one bonafide cheesy B-action star coming right up in the form of Thomas Jane. No, not Aaron Eckhart.
The actor is currently in final negotiations. (Sounds like the name of a great Thomas Jane movie!), which means it's pretty much a done deal. I sincerely hope this happens as Jane has been killing it on the B-movie scene, and I’d love to see him - with this cast and with this creative team - taking out Predators. Or a Predator. Maybe even THE Predator. Just imagine him with those Shane Black one-liners. It’s going to be great.
