Alfie Allen Joins The Predator Cast!

With filming commencing on The Predator this week, Shane Black promised we’d be seeing more cast announcements and he certainly didn’t lie. The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that Alfie Allen will be joining Boyd Holbrook’s military team!

“Allen will play an ex-Marine who teams with several other outsiders, including one played by Holbrook, to stop the human-hunting creatures in a setting that hasn’t been seen in a Predator movie: suburbia.”

    We go from the jungles of South America to.....the sleepy suburbs.  :(

    Nothing stays sleepy when the Predator is around. It's why the cast is playing military, government agent, and scientists and not soccer mom, friendly neighbor, and jogger.

    The suburbs setting still sucks though.

    It's clearly not a good place for a Predator movie.

    ...and helicopter/predator spaceship crash

    That's what the rumored opening to this film sounds like it'll be, though.

    Lol I'm not worried about the burbs thing. THR keeps reporting it even after Shane called them out - almost seems like they're sticking to their report because they have a chip on their shoulder about it.

    Obviously a portion of the film will take place in a residential area but multiple locations will be in the film. If the rumored plot description is halfway correct, the film will open with a bang. I don't see how a writer like Shane would allow the climax to flounder in comparison to the opening, no matter where the climax takes place.

    "Allen will play an ex-Marine who teams with several other outsiders, including one played by Holbrook, to stop the human-hunting creatures in a setting that hasn’t been seen in a Predator movie: suburbia."

    Looks like it´s gonna be set mainly in the burbs´after all.

    I guess that's where the kid lives.

    Yup, that´s probably gonna be the case, since the leaked plot mentions Holbrook´s caracther sending his son the predator tech from cuba.

    The suburbs is a little worrying maybe because as a setting it seems too familiar and ordinary for an exotic character like the Predator. Like putting Chewbacca in a gas station. Sure, Predator 2 was set in an urban landscape, but it was also set in the future and there was a lot about the LA of that film that seemed alien, weird, tribal, extreme, etc.

    Maybe its possible to make the suburbs seem weird and tribal too. Maybe it would look that way to the Predators.

    Or maybe it'll be Monster Squad 2.

    Why is every outlet still referring to it as a 'reboot' and set in the suburbs?

    I've seen Shane Black confirm that this is not the case yet every report starts with 'New Predator reboot'

    Making me cranky  >:(

    Well the problem was ultimately the story, even if the Strauses adequately sold a city wide invasion, the foundation was still weak.

    I feel like if Fox forced Shane to write a Predator story set 100% in the suburbs, he'd still knock it out of the park. He's clever, his dialogue is entertaining, and his ideas are subversive.

    Yeah, it was a crap story that was nothing more than a cash grab. Even though I still find myself enjoying the movie, I know both Greg and Colin should've done a few more films before making it. Anyway, that's the past.

    Shane probably could make a entertaining Predator film set in the suburbs. Anything can work if you have good talent behind it.

    Hicks, have you seen these? Confirms the film is set in suburbia for the most part.

    Thanks, Nick. We saw those earlier today. I wouldn't say they confirm it'll be taking place in suburbia. I wouldn't be surprised to see some of it - especially with Munn playing a scientist. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in a university or research facility setting.

    I think perhaps we maybe getting hung up on suburbia, thinking it's going to take place around houses and playgrounds. I think we'll be seeing a Predator 2-esque urban or city location and that doesn't bother me at all.

    And deleted your "constructive" post, Bishop. Can you stop trying to antagonize your fellow fandom. I thought I'd made it perfectly clear I'm bored of your attitude in that regards.

    Many people are afraid of the suburbs because they think of AvP: R. That film suffered from a low budget and wasn't allowed to show how widespread the infestation was getting. Instead they had to resort to background noises like gunshots and screams.

    The Predator I don't think will have this problem because it has a bigger budget, and more seasoned director.

    Funnily enough I literally just watched John Wick for the first time a few days ago. I'm quite familiar with him from Game of Thrones and I love him as Theon but this the only casting so far that has really surprised me. I would never have expected to see him in a Predator film.
