Alfie Allen Joins The Cast Of The Predator
The news comes immediately in the wake of it being announced that Allen’s Thrones co-star Iwan Rheon will play a role in ABC‘s upcoming The Inhumans program. Allen portrayed Theon Greyjoy on the action-packed medieval drama series, while Rheon played the part of Ramsay Bolton. In any case, the two seem to have bright prospects for their post-Thrones career.
Allen joins a cast that already boasts a number of talented actors, including Narcos‘ Boyd Holbrook, X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Olivia Munn, and Key and Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key. Holbrook recently made headlines with a statement that the film is not, as was previously reported, a sequel but a reboot that nevertheless retained some ties to the original series.
Superherohype, the source of this story, had this to share about the cult favorite film franchise:
The original Predator was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien entity that prizes the thrill of the hunt above all else. It was followed by a direct sequel, Predator 2, in 1990 before crossing over with Fox’s Alien franchise for two additional sequels, Alien vs. Predator and AvP: Requiem.
