The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Yvonne Strahovski is in final negotiations to join the cast of Shane Black’s film The Predator.
The film will see the brutal alien hunter head to the suburbs, with other plot details being kept under wraps. The film has began shooting yesterday in Vancouver. Strahovski could be playing the role of the mother to Tremblay, a troubled boy who is accidentally drawn into the conflict with the fierce alien creatures by his father — her ex-husband — played by Holbrook.
Yvonne Strahovski (whose credits include Chuck, Dexter and the upcoming He’s Out There) could be joining a cast that includes Trevante Rhodes, Sterling K. Brown, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key and Alfie Allen. Shane Black has co-written the script with Fred Dekker.
The Predator is scheduled for cinematic release on the 9th February 2018.
