Sterling K. Brown says that The Predator has a "wicked sense of humor"

Sterling K. Brown The Predator Shane Black

We're about to see quite a lot of Sterling K. Brown in the near future and that is most certainly not a bad thing. The actor, who recently scored an Emmy award for his work on The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, is in the midst of filming two big blockbuster movies, Marvel's BLACK PANTHER and Shane Black's THE PREDATOR. While flying back and forth between Vancouver and Atlanta to film the two movies, Sterling K. Brown spoke with Entertainment Weekly and was able to offer up a quick tease of what we can expect from the Shane Black film.

Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humor to it, which I love about it. And it’s got a real camaraderie amongst the main characters that I think folks will be attracted to. That’s pretty much all I can say.

It's nice to know that Shane Black's sly sense of humour will be present in THE PREDATOR, but hopefully the film will also bring us equal helpings of suspense and bleeding spines. It's been a bit of a dream come true for Brown to count himself among the cast of THE PREDATOR, as he has long been huge fan of the John McTiernan original. In fact, his friends at Stanford used to tease him that he'd start getting Bill Duke-type roles when he got older.

 I’m a huge fan of Predator, and, of course, everybody loves Jesse the Body [Ventura] and Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and Carl Weathers and Bill Duke. My friends at Stanford used to tease me — being the dark-skinned African-American man that I am — they’d say, ‘Yo, man, you’re going to start getting all [those] Bill Duke roles when you get older.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t look anything like Bill Duke, you guys can kiss my ass.’ So then I booked this movie and I told them and they’re like, ‘Dude, do you even realize that you’re now Bill Duke???’ And I had to go tell them to kiss my ass all over again.

THE PREDATOR stars Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Thomas Jane, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen and Edward James Olmos. Brown plays "a government agent who jails Holbrook’s ex-Marine character, but later needs his help with the Predators." Our own editor-in-chief Paul Shirey was recently on the set of THE PREDATOR, but he's remained as tight-lipped as an Alabama tick about the experience. We're all quite jealous naturally, but if you stick around, I'd imagine that we'll get to hear all about it at some point.

THE PREDATOR is set for a 2018 release.
