Here are the first ‘crazy’ plot details from the new ‘Predator’ movie
While Black has revealed that the film will be set in the suburbs this time around, rather than the jungle or an urban city (the settings of Predator and Predator 2), news about the actual plot of the movie has been kept under wraps—until now.
Actor Thomas Jane, whose role in The Predator remains a mystery, joined the podcast Shadow Nation and spoke about his work on the film. While Jane didn’t reveal any major spoilers or the entire plot, he peeled back the curtain about the setup of the film, and how his character gets involved with Boyd Holbrook’s Quinn McKenna, the main protagonist.
“We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq War, or whatever,” Jane said. “But we’re all fucking crazy so we go to the VA hospital to get our meds. We’re all shellshocked, PTSD soldiers. We’re at the VA hospital and we’re in group therapy and, of course, somebody flips out—this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this—somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get thrown onto the bus to go down to the hospital, and they throw this other guy [Holbrook] on the bus too.”
The “bus” to which Jane’s referring is something that fans have already gotten a look at. When Black revealed Jane was in the cast, he did it with a photo on social media of Jane sitting with Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Keegan Michael-Key (Key and Peele), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Augusto Aguilera, and Holbrook in the back of a bus.
“He’s [Holbrook’s McKenna] a guy they’ve actually marked to kill because he’s seen a UFO,” Jane said on the podcast. “He’s seen the Predator ships come down so they lock him up and throw him in with us lunatics. They’re going to take that bus, drive it down to a ditch, and shoot us all just to get rid of this one guy. But, of course, we take the bus over and we’re all like, ‘Fuck that, man. Let’s go kill these fucking Predators ourselves!’ and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there’s these aliens out there. So that’s kinda cool!”
While Jane doesn’t get too detailed about the plot, fans can fill in the blanks about how the story gets kicked off based on the bits of info and character descriptions that have already been released.
Here’s a quick rundown of all the info on the story and cast that’s out there about The Predator:
The new Predator film marks the return of the franchise to the big screen for the first time since 2010’s Predators, which starred a jacked-up Adrien Brody in the main role. Black behind the camera is also a bit of a return: The director appeared as an actor in the original film alongside Schwarzenegger.
Black spoke about his excitement in returning to the franchise, saying he hopes to “event-ise the Predator again and make it more mysterious,” and at the same time returning the series to the "intimate" roots from the original film.
The Predator is set for release on Aug. 3, 2018.
