"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."

He's a great actor. I saw him in John Wick too.

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.

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.

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.

Interesting choice. I like him in Game Of Thrones.

He said not all of it is set in the suburbs.

Alfie doesn't strike me as a much of a military, ex marine type. But then again I've only really seen him in Game of Thrones.

He was a real asshole in John Wick. He has potential to be someone badass. It's in his eyes and face that work for me.
