With cameras currently rolling in Vancouver, the cast for Shane Black's (Iron Man 3) new Predator film continues to assemble apace, with news arriving via The Hollywood Reporter that Thomas Jane (The Mist) is now set to join.
Black 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. While we don't yet know who Jane will be playing, we can certainly see him ready to rumble with one of the extra-terrestrial menaces.
Jane has largely been seen in independent movies for the last few years, and recently worked on crime drama 1922. And on the small screen, he appeared in science fiction drama The Expanse. The Predator, meanwhile, will arrive in US cinemas on 9 February next year, before heading to our shores on 16 February.
