Update: Augusto Aguilera joins cast.
Sons of Anarchy ride again? Nope. It’s the new movie The Predator which turned North Vancouver’s Grouse Inn into the Hum Dinger Motel tonight, a biker gang hangout. I watched some of the action past security standing in a line with umbrellas to block traffic and everyone’s view of the set. Who was there? Game of Thrones’ Alfie Allen.
Shane Black (Iron Man 3) co-wrote and is directing the new installment that gets back to the roots of the franchise. He should know how it all began. He had a role in the first one with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The new Predator moves from the South American jungle to rural America. Boyd Holbrook (Logan/Wolverine 3 villain) is the new Schwarzenegger. He’s joined by Olivia Munn (X-Men/Ocean’s Eight), Sterling K. Brown (This is Us), Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight) and Augusto Aguilera (Chasing Life). Local sensation Jacob Tremblay plays Holbrook’s autistic son, who’s a savant with languages. Holbrook’s character encounters alien predators but no one believes him, apparently.
