Boyd Holbrook Says Arnold Schwarzenegger is Unlikely to Appear in 'The Predator'
Shane Black's The Predator is intended as a direct sequel to the first two Predator films, though its star Boyd Holbrook has seemingly negated his director's claim. Speaking with We Got This Covered, Holbrook tempers expectations by claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger's character may not be a part of the picture.
“I’m currently working on Predator, it’s not a sequel,” Holbrook confirms. “Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of ‘Predator’ [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real. It’s real fresh. I don’t think you’re going to see [Arnold] Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. It’s horror, science-fiction and a western.”
Holbrook is joined by Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay, and Sterling K. Brown. Filming begins this month in Vancouver. It will reach theaters on February 9, 2018.
