Sterling K. Brown (American Crime Story) is most certainly having a big moment in his career. Not content with an Emmy Award winning performance on one TV miniseries, a successful main network show and joining the cast of Marvel's Black Panther, news now arrives via The Hollywood Reporter his is also in talks to face an alien threat in The Predator.
Shane Black (Iron Man 3) is spearheading the reboot of the Predator concept, having written the script with Fred Dekker (RoboCop 3). The movie's story is mostly under wraps, but will see several of the lethal creatures hunting humans including Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) and Trevante Rhodes' (Moonlight) military men, Olivia Munn's (Mortdecai) scientist and Keegan-Michael Key's (Let's Be Cops) character, who teams with the others to fight the alien hunters.
Brown, assuming his deal goes through, is being slotted in as a government agent who jails Holbrook's character, but is forced to let him out and work together when the extra-terrestrial menace hits. Black should have the cameras rolling soon.
Brown is playing a new character for Black Panther, which is due to hit UK screens on 9 February 2018. The Predator is planning to follow that on 16 February the same year. And the good news keeps coming for the actor, as his hit series This Is Us has just been renewed for two seasons.
