The Predator Adds Jacob Tremblay To Cast

The Predator adds Jacob Tremblay to it’s growing ensemble cast. The Hollywood Reporter are at it again with more exclusive The Predator casting news. Their latest scoop reveals that child actor  Jacob Tremblay has joined the cast! It just wouldn’t be a Shane Black film otherwise!

“The young actor, who broke through and stole hearts and scenes with his performance in the Oscar-winning drama Room, will star with Boyd Holbrook in The Predator, Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise.”

 The Predator Adds Jacob Tremblay To Cast

The Predator adds Jacob Tremblay to it’s growing ensemble cast.

The Hollywood Reporter also provides some character details (some of which have now been removed from the article) that sound very similar to a previously “leaked” synopsis of the film (beware potential spoilers):

“Tremblay will play the son of Holbrook’s character, an ex-Marine who discovers the existence of fierce aliens but finds that no one believes they exist. The son is autistic and bullied in school but becomes a key player in the fight due to his preternatural ability to learn languages.”

Jacob Tremblay is best known for his role in Room and following his breakout he has gone on to get roles in Wonder alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, and The Book of Henry with Naomi Watts and Sarah Silverman.

     Decipher languages my ass.

     Unless this kid swaps out the "want some candy scene from pred 2" by surprise mimicking a predator  like the autistic kid in The mimic  with the spoons.  Im still thinking  itd be better to just call this a mac and me sequel.
    I hate kids. (Its cool. I used to be one) in movies where they run the risk of destabilizing the whole thing.  It worked in Aliens because Rebecca Jordan was the literal only survivor of hadleys hope.  She didnt have to be a genius. Or special. Or autistic  or even female.  She just had to be a scared kid  that fit into the cooling ducts. And im pretty sure  she wasnt the only kid to fit.  Just the only one that was still  ferreting around in there when the sulaco pulled into orbit.  What the hell was i saying.  Oh yeah.  Shane blacks a great writer.  But this isnt the nice guys.  I hated losing Avp time  to some asshole pizzaboy who was in love. And i would prefer not to lose 45 minutes worth of film to "i have a son.  He is autistic.  Have to save my son. Give me back my son.  We did it. Im glad your my son"

     For those of you concerned with yautja culture. And predators losing their scary factor. What the hell are you talking about.  Predator is not scary.   The Alien is scary.  Because it can physically tuck you under it arm and will carry you off. It borrows traits from its host to better prey on that species.  .  Predator can kill you . yes.  Doesnt mean he will.  But unlike the Alien. predators show a capacity for individual thought. Broken tusk. Ahab.  Light stepper.  Wolf.  Hell even three spot.
    I see so many complaints about not wanting to see predator in the kitchen.  You kidding? We saw predators . Twice on film . Disinfect  some wounds and put on a bandaid. And i dunno about you. But that shit was fascinating as hell.  Keep  the "new" weapons to a minimum. . Alien tail whips?  Dumbass shurikens. Under utilized  falcon drone.  Triple length  reversible wrist blades?  Spend that extra  special fx m9ney on mime lessons.  Kevin peter hall did more hopping from  root to root  by the lake in val verde or letting his arms swing at his sides before  taking his stance against king Willie to show thinking Alien mind. Than all the crap  the last 3 directors forced down our throats with. Posturing.  Fancy weapons.  Needless roars..   Ian whytes performance improved dramatically from avp to avp2. So much so i thought it was a different actor. ALIEN FILM. PREDATOR FILM. Good comics. Its gonna be a good year.

    Does anyone else think they may be doing a Stranger TThings kind of vibe with the next Predator with these cast members?
    It would be too parody IMHO.Then what gives? I can't imagine anything else.

    There will be a sci fi vibe and governmental workings explored some more I bet, but I'm pretty confident we're going to get a Predator film and not ET. They cast one kid and several adults so far (one adult being the lead). If they cast several kids and 2 adults and it took place in the 80s, I'd be worried. But they didn't, plus the script was turned in before Stranger Things was popular.

    Maybe, but the franchise has to expand regardless. If not showing the Predator culture, then something else.

    Oh I agree it should show us something new, I just don't wanna see a Predator sitting at home or a Predator council or anything like that. That sort of stuff is best left to the imagination.

    Aye, there's a level you just don't need to get to but we can learn and develop the Predator as a species without showing them in the kitchen and lessening the mystery.

    But don't you wanna see a scene of a group of Predators watching and commentating on Predator while drinking some cool Yautja brew? That'd be something new!  :P

    I'd like to see the Predators communicating while they're hunting with one another. Showing how they work as group from their perspective. I don't mind seeing a council like environment either. Doesn't mean it has to show them arguing or doing something over dramatic. Maybe they're trying to plan their next hunt. As long as its shot right I think it could work. I really enjoyed the part in AvP- R showing Wolf in his private quarters. Something like that wouldn't bother me in the slightest.
  6. The Alien Predator
    The same incorrect statement can be said about Alien (and I think many are excited/interested in Covenant).

    None of the Alien films have ever shown us where the creatures come from or how they came to be. Sure, apparently Covenant is gonna reveal that stuff, but to be honest, I'm worried about where they're going to go with it.

    genocyber's right, showing too much of the Predator's culture will make them less interesting.

    I don't want to see Predator culture like it's a documentary (in fact I prefer to not see the Predator home world), I do want to see more of how their presence impacts Earth on a whole, though. And why not see how they react if, say, their tech is intercepted? The Predator can remain hidden and a mystery while still exploring more of this franchise's universe and establishing how certain groups go about in dealing with Predators.

    Showing more but definitely not less interesting imo.

    That could definitely work.

    Or have a small scene of a Predator preparing his equipment for the hunt, maybe using some cool tech to sharpen his blades. Or show him installing something into his mask.

    I heard somewhere, maybe Shane Black himself said it, but we might see "who maintains their tech?" Maybe show some Predators preparing the main one for the hunt or something.

    So don't worry guys, we're not gonna see how Predators file their tax returns or anything. Just some cool and new little things that make the film unique and add something to the universe.

    It's not like the kid is going to decypher a book called "Everything about us in 2 volumes", he'll probably just decypher some detail like "they hunt because they lost a bet" or something.


    As for the kid in the movie, I have this scene in my head now, like the Predator stumbled onto the kid accidentally, the kid noticed him but wasn't scared, the Predator was confused as to why the kid is not scared and tries to break stuff and look menacing to him, but the kid doesn't budge. Eventually the Predator gives up.

    They tried to go back with the mystery with Predators and came off like a remake of the first film in a lot of ways. This sequel has to take some chances so it can broaden out to create a more larger fan base and kick start the franchise again. It has practically been dead since Predator 2.

    Hopefully, the new film will have a give and take of showing enough, but not showing a lot.

    And then do what?
    Well with different terrain comes different dangers and reasons for the characters. Africa is an often densely populated and dry place. The Predator likes hunting where its hot, and it could arrive in the middle of a civil war uprising breaking out. American commandos are sent in to scout the situation and get caught up in the fighting. Meanwhile the Predator begins picking off groups and then members of the team.

    Boring, let's have something new!

    So basically Predator 1-5, just with a different setting thus a new opportunity for a different hue!

    This time it's in a jungle! This time a city! This time the snow! This time a small town!

    ...this time, you're going to get to see some orange! Because...DESERT!!!!!!

    So does this mean the ex marine had an encounter with a Predator and won? Since he has some of their tech I'm assuming that's the case.
    It's an interesting route for them to take, especially with the son's character. I think it can work.
  16. echobbase79
    Some parts of this movie could feel like Monster Squad. Black and Dekker did write that after all. So I'm not surprised with the kids being involved in this. This will probably just a small aspect of the picture though.

    You can go to The Cheesecake Factory any ol' day, but tonight you're having Il Fornaio.

    That's not what I ordered.

    You don't have to eat at this restaurant.

    The restaurant don't have to change the menu.
    If you want the same menu go back and watch Predator, but don't expect people to come with you. We're at the other restaurant in the meantime, you know, the one that gives people more than old, warmed up stuff from tin cans.
