Earlier this year, it was announced that Starship Troopers actor Jake Busey had joined the cast of Shane Black's The Predator. Given that he happens to be the son of Gary Busey, who played Agent Peter Keyes in Predator 2, many assumed that Jake would be playing the son of his father's character from the 1990 film.
Well, we now know that this is indeed the case.
Speaking with The Red Booth, Busey confirmed that in the new film he’s playing the son of Agent Peter Keyes, whom his real-life father portrayed almost three decades ago.
"Shane Black called me and he said ‘Hey, you wanna do this movie? We don’t have money for you but it’ll be a fun thing to come play and be your father’s son.’ And so as much as I have followed in my Dad’s footsteps career-wise, this is like really following in his footsteps by playing a character who is the son of the character he played. And I don’t think there would be any other forum where I would do that. I think this is the one thing."
"We shot it up in Vancouver, and they were there doing it for about three or four months, but I was up there for three weeks. I play a scientist in the film, and I’m very excited about it. I think it’s going to be great. If you liked the very first movie a lot, you’ll really like this one. This one has a lot of essence of the first movie."
What do you think, Infinite Earths fans? Could we see the return of the Other World Lifeforms Taskforce when The Predator hits theaters next summer?
