The Latest Update To Shane Black's The Predator
Article by Anthony Cleveland
Thomas Jane has revealed some of the plot to Fred Dekker and Shane Black’s The Predator and it sounds crazy...because it looks like it focuses on a VA psyche unit. Take a look at the plot details bellow:
“We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq war or whatever. But we’re all f**king crazy so we go to the VA hospital to get our meds. We’re all like shellshocked, PTSD…soldiers. We’re at the VA hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this…somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get thrown onto the bus to go down to the hospital and they throw this other guy on the bus too.
And he’s a guy they’ve actually marked to kill him because he’s seen a UFO, he’s seen the Predator ships come down so they lock him up and throw him in with us lunatics. They’re going to take that bus, drive it down to a ditch and shoot us all just to get rid of this one guy. But, of course, we take the bus over and we’re all like “fuck that man, let’s go kill these fucking Predators ourselves” and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there’s these aliens out there. So that’s kinda cool!
[It] has that kind of Shane Black humor. We had a blast. It was funny. You know the Predators, they looked…you know they didn’t f**k those up. They’re still Predators and they’re pretty much the same Predator as always. I think it might be great.”
The film is currently slated for a August 3rd release next year and also stars Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, and Sterling K. Brown.
