“If you wrote Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon I’ll Do Anything You Say” – Keegan-Michael Key on The Predator

Speaking at a question and answer session with BroadwayWorld’s Richard Ridge, The Predator actor Keegan-Michael Key talked about his work in the film industry. Ridge also asked Key about his time spent working on The Predator and what it was like working with Shane Black.

“He is really something else.  Talk about another collaborative director who would sometimes pull me aside – it pays sometimes to be a little mercenary. He’d pull me aside and be like “so I’m wondering here if you could whip up some jokes for this part “and I’m like “is that in my contract?” [laughter] But I was more than happy to do it because it felt great to be – and I got to be on a set with a lot of like really cool, now people.”

Key also went on to talk about his fellow cast, specifically highlighting Augusto Aguilera as someone to “look out” for. Key was full of nothing but nice comments about The Predator’s cast, going on to elaborate that:

“It’s a great group. It’s going to feel like a movie, like the movie’s the most important thing as opposed to the A-list actor that is helming the group. And Shane picked this group because he wanted a bunch of collaborative actors who felt like a team and I feel like we feel like a team. He really…he’s so erudite and so well read. You know, I’m sorry, if you wrote Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon I’ll do anything you say.” 

You can watch the Q&A video in full below. The Predator is brought up around the 01:21:33 mark.

    Keegan Michael Key praises Shane Black and the actors. (at around 1:21:29) especially Augusto Aguilera  :)


    It's literally nothing...

    Hmmm I thought it was something. I guess you are just another chip on the shoulder fan. Nice to hear some complimentry words about Augusto
    It's nothing against the poster or Galaxy for posting it as news. I just don't believe anything in that was actually giving me any information about The Predator. Maybe if somebody compiled all the things the cast had said about the film then I would be interested in giving it a gander.

    For what's it's worth despite the script , despite the departure from what's gone before and the Comedic tone , honesty who am I to deny the fact that deep down I'm exited for this film .  It's still predator .. and I was thinking actually today after speaking to big daddy john , the idea of some rogue predators helping mankind is starting to grow on me . The more I think about things the more I'm starting to see the potential.  It took a lot to take away my bias, but actually I might be wrong , this film might well be bad ass . Especially if character development is strong 💪

    Character development is among Shane Black's main abillities, along with great dialogue and pacing. If the execution is right, we could have a really cool movie !

    Very true :D but to be honest I was (still am?) kinda worried that's all he'll be relegated to. I hate when guys are killed right off the bat before we get a chance to get familiar with them. Slipknot is the extreme example of that though lol

    Yeah, it was something, basically exactly what Darkoo said it was haha

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this group works on screen. And I haven't read the script but I'm assuming Augusto will have more to do than say, Slipknot from Suicide Squad, based on what Keegan says in this interview. So that's good haha
