Sterling K. Brown In Talks To Join THE PREDATOR

Shane Black’s Twentieth Century Fox’s reboot of The Predator keeps getting better and better.

Sterling K. Brown, the recent Emmy Award winner for his work on FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and a star of NBC’s ensemble drama This Is Us, is in negotiations to join the cast. He will play opposite of Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Logan), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Keegan-Michael Key (Keanu, Key & Peele), and Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse).

If the deal goes through, Brown will play a government agent who jails Holbrook, but has to release him and work with him and fellow ex-marines Rhodes and Key to fight the extra-terrestrial Predators – yes, multiple killers.

The setting for the sci-fi action story is in suburbia. The script was written by Black (Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys, Monster Squad). Black has confirmed that the film remains in the continuity of the first two movies. He states there is a reference in the script as to why the film has a singular title.

Brown also earned SAG and NAACP award nominations for People v O.J. He is currently filming Marvel Studios’ Black Panther in Atlanta. He will play a new character, N’Jobu, “a figure from T’Challa aka Black Panther’s past.” He will also be seen in Marshall, the Thurgood Marshall biopic starring Chadwick Boseman and Josh Gad.

The Predator begins shooting in February and will be released in theaters on February 9, 2018.
