Jacob Tremblay Signs On To Kick Ass In THE PREDATOR

In which a pint-sized badass joins Shane Black's latest.

Shane Black's The Predator, which has already roped in Thomas Jane, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, and Moonlight's Trevante Rhodes, just added another badass to the squad: Room's Jacob Tremblay.

Take it away, Hollywood Reporter:

The young actor, who broke through and stole hearts and scenes with his performance in the Oscar-winning drama Room, will star with Boyd Holbrook in The Predator, Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise.

So far, plot details have been very scarce on The Predator, but The Hollywood Reporter's actually got a pretty detailed breakdown of what Tremblay's role will entail:

"Tremblay will play the son of the character played by Holbrook, the latter playing an ex-Marine who discovers the existence of fierce aliens but that no one believes they exist. The son is autistic and bullied in school but becomes a key player in the fight due to his preternatural ability to learn languages."

Whoa. Okay. So this is ... this is really gonna be something, isn't it? 

Production on The Predator begins next month in Vancouver, with a planned release date of February 9th, 2018. Assuming we all live long enough to see next February, we expect this thing to be spectacular. You guys as excited about it as we are?
