Alfie Allen Joins The Cast Of The Predator

Game of Thrones alum Alfie Allen is set to play a role in Shane Black‘s planned science fiction series reboot 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 NarcosBoyd 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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
