It’s been a good month for Edward James Olmos! First, he revealed that he is returning as the legendary Gaff in Blade Runner 2049. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that he will play a military character in The Predator!

Olmos is the second big name to be added to the film since principal photograph began in Vancouver on February 20th. This announcement follows the addition of Chuck/Dexter star Yvonne Strahovski joining the cast earlier this month. The film was star-studded before either announcement. Shane Black (who played Hawkins in the original film) is back this time pulling double duty in the writer’s and the director’s seat; and the movie will feature such talent as Alfie Allen, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, and Jacob Tremblay.

The Predator is set for release in theaters on February 9th, 2018. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more developments on this project as they break!

John has loved movie monsters for as far back as he can remember. He’s since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on. He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
