Jacob Tremblay Joins The Cast Of Shane Black’s The Predator

The Book of Henry actor Jacob Tremblay is slated to play a role in the planned science fiction film The Predator.

In addition to The Book of Henry, Tremblay has appeared in Burn Your Maps, Before I Wake (which also featured recently-announced Predator co-star Thomas Jane), and, most notably, Room, which garnered Academy Award nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. He is set to appear next in Wonder, a drama film from The Perks of Being a Wallflower author Stephen Chbosky.

When filming on the highly-anticipated Predator sequel begins in February, Tremblay will act opposite such notable actors as Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, and Sterling K. Brown. Helming the project is Shane Black, the Iron Man 3 director known for his penchant for including child actors in his projects.

The source of this story is Superherohype, which shared the following about the original Predator series:

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. In 2010, Nimrod Antal helmed a reboot with a new feature, Predators.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

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.
