Today saw filming begin on Shane Black’s upcoming Predator sequel, The Predator, and to celebrate this the director has released the first official photo of the cast in all its bad-ass goodness. Read on to check it out.
The cast photo was released via Black’s official Twitter and gives us our first look at the characters portrayed by Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes and the adorable Jacob Tremblay. The group definitely look more like some form of mercenary team as opposed to an official military group. No sign of Tom Jane’s character yet. You can check out the picture below.

The director also confirmed in a separate tweet that the film will in fact return to its R-Rated roots, explaining ‘And, just to be clear… PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed… a lot.’
