Jake Busey Follows in Father’s Footsteps, Joins Predator Franchise

Jake Busey - Predator

Wicked Horror has just learned that Jake Busey has joined the cast of the upcoming film The Predator. This is of particular interest because his Father (Gary Busey) starred in the 1990 film Predator 2. 

No character details have been revealed at this juncture. So, it is unclear who Busey will portray. But we will keep you apprised as we learn more.

In addition to Busey, the film also stars Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Thomas Jane, and Yvonne Strahovski.

Benicio del Toro was tapped to star at one point but was later replaced by Holbrook due to a scheduling conflict.

Shane Black recently told ComingSoon that the Predator will be getting some serious upgrades in terms of costume design, as well as abilities.

The picture is scheduled for release February 9, 2018. It is a collaboration between writer Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad) and Black.

When the project was first announced, it was revealed that this would be a direct sequel to the first film, ignoring everything that came after it.
