Jake Busey plays son of Gary Busey's Predator 2 character in The Predator!

The last we heard on Shane Blacks reboot of PREDATOR called THE PREDATOR was that filming had (possibly) wrapped. While that news was cool and all, today's news just might be the coolest PREDATOR-related scoop we've received in years.

Turns out Jake Busey will be playing the son of Garu Busey's character from PREDATOR 2! How cool is that sh*t?! Little Busey recently sat down with The Red Booth and let it slip that he would, in fact, be playing his father's son in the upcoming reboot.

Jake Busey on THE PREDATOR:

[Co-writer/director 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.
