Sterling K Brown In Negotiations to Star in The Predator

Sterling K Brown in negotiations to star in The Predator. Casting news continues as The Hollywood Reporter releases another exclusive article. Recently they revealed that Trevante Rhodes had joined The Predator’s ensemble cast and that Keegan-Michael Key was in talks to join as well.

The Hollywood Reporter are now reporting that Sterling K. Brown is also in discussions about coming aboard The Predator:

“Sterling K. Brown — one of the stars of NBC’s buzzy ensemble drama This Is Us, who also won an Emmy for his work on FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story — is in negotiations to join the cast of The Predator, Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of the sci-fi action franchise that will be directed by Shane Black.”

Sterling K. Brown is best known for his work on The People vs. O.J Simpson: American Crime Story and This Is Us but he will also be appearing alongside the likes of Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Martin Freeman in Marvel’s Black Panter.

Once again THR refer to The Predator as being set in the suburbs, something that Shane Black refuted in November of last year. The Hollywood Reporter does provide a small tidbit of information about Brown’s character, explaining that he would work for a government agency that jails Boyd Holbrook’s character:

“If a deal is sealed, Brown will play a government agent who jails Holbrook’s ex-Marine character, but later needs his help with the Predators.”

This new report also mentions that Keegan-Michael Key has joined the ensemble. If the negotiations work out with Sterling K Brown, he would add his talent to The Predator’s building award-winning ensemble cast.

    Sterling K. Brown talks more about The Predator
    Directed and co-written by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon), this reboot of the thermal-tracking, human-hunting alien franchise is the fourth installment in the Predator series and set in present day. Though technically a sequel, it does not continue story lines from 1987's Predator, 1990's Predator, or 2010's Predators. "Shane has his whole take on it and it's very different than the original Predator," Brown tells EW. "It's got a really wicked sense of humor to it, which I love about it. And it's got a real camaraderie amongst the main characters that I think folks will be attracted to. That's pretty much all I can say."

    GQ interview:

    QuoteGQ: So you're in the new Predator movie!
    Sterling K. Brown: I'm going to Vancouver for a couple of months for this new Predator film. Shane Black is a beast, the script is off the chain. I think it's a really nice reboot to something that people are familiar with, but it's gonna turn it over on its heels a little bit. My character's a very different character than Randall, which is very exciting for me. I won't elaborate too much more than that, but he's definitely not Randall. 


    How'd you get involved in the project?
    Well, the producers reached out to my agent, they said, We have this wonderful script and Shane is a fan. John Davis, who's the producer, said, "I'm a fan of Sterling's and we would like for him to check out the script and see if he's interested." And I read it, and it was fantastic, and expressed my interest, and they said "let's make it happen.
" And I tell you, that's a pretty cool thing for me personally, because, it hasn't been like that up to this point in my career. So to receive a call from a producer like Mr. Davis, with a writer/director like Mr. Black, who are interested in Mr. Brown, is alright by me.

    Were you a fan of Shane Black?
    When I saw Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, I was like, this is the shit. I was like, this movie is so dope, and Downey was so flawless, and so was Val, and the script just crackled. And what I didn't learn about Shane until I just had a meeting with John Davis a couple days ago, was that Shane became a superstar from Jump Street, when he was 21 and he wrote one of the best scripts that anyone had ever scene, called Lethal Weapon. 
This dude wrote Lethal Weapon at 21! I was like Holy shit! So between that, Kiss Kiss, and Iron Man 3—he's a beast. Yeah, I'm a fan.

    Where are you seeing this? I looked him up on Google and it didn't say anything like that?

    I can understand some of the complaints when it comes to P2 story. It's all action with very little moments where you really get to know the characters. I wish Hopkins would've kept in the scenes at Danny's funeral. Also, Leona's birthday party showing her husband. There were scenes with Captain Pilgrim talking about how Mike should watch his ass with the Feds in said scene. But even then I'm not sure that would be enough.

    But I love P2 it's a worthy sequel to the original.
    To me Holbrook looks like a pornstar :D

    Predator 2 is good, its got awesome characters, cool quotes and everybody loves king Willy.

    I was referring to your statement about how not a lot of people might not have known most of the Predator cast because they didn't have the internet back then or live in a America.

    As for the new guy? I have no clue who is. It's a strange cast to be sure, but I'll go with it for now. Also, I didn't care for Brody in Predators . I just couldn't buy him in that role. But then again a lot of people hated Glover in Predator 2, but I loved him.
    I just looked up Holbrook today, he is a porn actor lol sorry to say it but he is.
    Same, i dont understand the hate on Predator 2 in anyway cast and storywise.

    Yes, remember nobody had internet back then, we arent all Americans and we didnt grew up with Hollywood in our backyard.
    When we went for a movie to the cinema because it was recommended or just a wild guess when we stood in front of the cinema display,
    looking for upcoming movies or just looked at screenshots that hang in the display of the cinema outside.
    But i agree, i think they should have casted the Rock for at least one role in this.

    That's true and I can understand that.
    Lets be honest, you think Boyd Holbrook is a guy people feel with or you think he can carry a movie like this?
    He isnt much more then the older brother from AVP Requiem.
    Ill be honest Holbrook looks like a schmuck, looks good on the walkway or in pictures but a leading role in The Predator?
    Im not hating but im being realistic, Brody pulled it off in Predators but Holbrook aint no Brody or Schwarzenegger/Glover.
  10. Scorpio
    TBH I saw Predator in the early 90s and I didn't know any of those people, except maybe Arnold because he was in a lot of popular movies around that time.  But he was also well known in several circles as far back as the 70s due to bodybuilding.  I also never watched the Rocky films or WWE.

    And again: It's less about who they have, and more who Shane Black has worked with in the past, and who he wanted for this project.

    Lol. That's not a rumor. That's official. And why would he be too busy? Predator is filming in 2017. Nowhere near 2019. Lol.

    Well seeing how long the delays have been, Predator 4's announcement in 2014, completing the script in late 2015, carrying out pre-production in 2016, finally setting up the filming this year 2017, a lengthy production ahead, set for a 2018 release we're lucky the movie didn't sizzle away in development hell.

    Arnold maybe preoccupied with other commitments, e.i. The Apprentice, Legend of Conan, The Twins sequel Triplets, if they ever actually make it. honestly it looks like Arnold is unlikely to be involved in either movie, one The Predator despite being said to harken back to nostalgia while being an inventive sequel isn't likely to include a supporting role or a cameo for Arnold, even though a percent of the fan base would love to see that. As for Terminator is likely that project will be a reinvention rather than a continuation to the established series. They probably won't event get into production because Cameron won't gain the rights until 2019.

    K. 2017 and 2019 are not synonymous. They are different years and have several hundred days in between them.

    As if the cast of Predator 1987 was a well known cast LoL


    Ontopic, i think the ex marine guy draws the attention of the predator and gets captured by the cops,
    as from then on he want him as his opponent but the guy or refuses or the predator is luring him
    out by killing the fbi cops and people around him, as he has to team up with the cops to fight the predator.
    Maybe something like that?
    Im again more curious to the mystery behind it all instead of the action scenes, will they show more of the predator world or group he hunts with? The gun blazing isnt my thing anymore.

    Predator wasn't a franchise when Predator came out. You gotta grow and capture new demographics. Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron are in the new Fast and Furious film. No one big was in the original. You can't be modest anymore. At least they got it right with Shane and Larry the DP.
    The cast of Rogue One isnt that well known, but they did the job done more then one way.

    Quote...the Predator had been delayed for a ridiculous long time were lucky they're set on making it

    I thought it was announced in 2014 and delayed (after the script was ready) only a couple of months from shooting in October 2016 to February 2017. I might be wrong but I don't remember reading any articles about The Predator being put on a serious hold or hiatus.

    I wouldn't worry, man, think about it - when was Dwayne Johnson announced as Black Adam and Doc Savage? It'll take a couple of years for those projects to get to shooting and released but they aren't in trouble.

    I optimistically hope Schwarzenegger is in the movie and if he is, chances are he won't need more than a few weeks of shooting since he's not the main character. It can fit in his schedule  :)


    QuotePredator wasn't a franchise when Predator came out. You gotta grow and capture new demographics. Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron are in the new Fast and Furious film.

    I agree, but I think there's a difference here. The Fast franchise has had strong enough momentum with their movies coming out soon after each other; the Predator on the other hand? It has required time to marinate after the spinoffs that general audiences didn't really gravitate towards. And it has been a long time since 1987. That means Shane Black's film has to reinvigorate life into the franchise rather than grow organically like a franchise that's been going strong for 15 years or so.

    On the plus side, the film is finding new demographics in other ways. It's casting up-in-comers and people who have buzz around them (by 2018, Holbrook and Brown will probably have audiences wanting more - fingers crossed!).


    On a totally other note, I'm watching The People v OJ right now (which is fantastic BTW in case you haven't watched it), and it's kind of funny that Sterling K Brown is sharing multiple scenes with the guy who played Dallas in AVPR. Then  it reminded me of Trevante Rhodes being in Moonlight with Mahershala Ali, who was in Predators. It's like Predator is the new "6 degrees from Kevin Bacan" or something lol  :P

    I merely brought up the fact the Predator had been delayed for a ridiculous long time were lucky they're set on making it. If Arnold has involvement he might be contracted to promote the movie on tour internationally, but may very well have time to carry out involvement with Termiantor, which is unlikely to happen til 2019 before a release of 2020, 2019 about ten years til the setting of future war in Terminator, 2029.

    Off topic but have you guys heard the rumor that by 2019 when James Cameron gets the rights back to Terminator he'll produce a new movie that's to be directed by Deadpool director Tim Miller? Dunno if Arnold may be involved, maybe too busy with The Predator depending if he's involved or not.
