Olivia Munn Joins Shane Black’s ‘The Predator’

We are still pretty far away from Shane Black’s The Predator, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it, right?

Olivia Munn has joined the cast, alongside James Franco, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The report says Munn will be playing the very generic “scientist” opposite Franco and Boyd Holbrook (Narcos), who is replacing Benicio Del Toro as a Special Forces commando.

As for the story itself, little is known aside from the setting for The Predator: suburbia?

Plot details are being kept under wraps but this is known: the story plunks the deadly alien hunter, who audiences have seen fight in jungles, concrete jungles, frozen wastelands and alien planets, in the harsh environment of … suburbia.

Soccer moms beware! The Predator is in the middle of pre-production with a scheduled February 8, 2018 (it feels like a hundred years away) release date. Black is directing and wrote the script with longtime buddy Fred Dekker – the two worked together on Monster Squad way back in the day.

Stay tuned for more details. Like, hopefully confirmation that Old-Man Dutch will appear in some capacity.
