Next year will see The Predator stalk into theaters around the world! Directed by Shane Black, who co-starred in the original 1987 Predator movie alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura and Bill Duke, the film will continue the legacy of the ultimate alien hunter that began almost three decades ago.
Moonlight star Trevante Rhodes, who is currently filming The Predator over in Vancouver, Canada, recently sat down with Yahoo! to briefly discuss the upcoming film - including the name of his character and a few choice tidbits surrounding the overall plot of the film.

One thing that Rhodes has kept hidden until now is that he was a bit of a scaredy-cat as a young kid. That’s why he held off on watching the entire Predator series until he was cast in The Predator. “I was really squeamish growing up — not too fond of blood and guts,” he admitted. “I saw the first one when I was young, and liked it, but I was like, ‘I can’t watch any more of these!'” Now he’s facing those childhood fears by playing Nebraska Williams, a former Marine who enlists in a special Predator-hunting operation headed up by his good friend Quinn McKenna (played by Logan‘s Boyd Holbrook). “We form a bit of a motley crew,” Rhodes says, adding that Black is putting his own distinct imprint on the franchise. “It’s what you expect a Shane Black move to be, set in the world of the Predator.”
