Keegan-Michael Key Says Shane Black’s ‘The Predator’ is Not a Sequel

The good folks over at Entertainment Weekly sat down with actor Keegan-Michael Key, who stated a few facts regarding Shane Black’s The Predator.

Talking with EW, Key told the site: “Predator was a real privilege to do, and if people think they’re going to see a remake of the original movie, they’re in for a surprise. A very pleasant surprise. It’s not a sequel. [It has] lots of elements of humor. It certainly lives in the universe of the five films that were made. I think that’s probably the best way to say it and the only way I can say it right now.

Edward James Olmos, Boyd Holbrook, Room breakout Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn and Jake Busey star.

The movie once again features unsuspecting humans who slowly realize that fierce hunter-aliens are in their midst, this time in what could be a suburban setting.

The Predator is directed by Black, who also co-wrote the script with Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are producing.

Fox will uncage The Predator on August 3, 2018.
