Edward James Olmos Talks ‘The Predator’ Plot Details: “It’s Crazy. It’s so Crazy”




Next Year’s new franchise entry The Predator is getting a lot of fans very excited, including ourselves. The film is in the good hands of directer Shane Black (The Nice Guys), which will take our favorite alien out of the jungle and will unleash him onto the streets of Los Angeles.

In a recent interview with the folks over at Cinema Blend, star Edward James Olmos revealed some more fresh plot information, while teasing that the film is very humorous and crazy.

I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny,” Olmos revealed. “The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already been filming for three months so they were a unit. So I jump in as the General and there were some moments where I just had to laugh in the scene and I couldn’t be laughing in the scene. ‘I’m sorry guys. Really, I’m sorry.’

Olmos continued, “Keegan (Michael Key) and Thomas Jane… they’re paired off in groups of three groups. Six guys. The way they work, they were all post-traumatic stress disorder guys who were inside of an insane asylum. A mental hospital. Then they put the lead character in there to kind of make them disappear, because they want them kind of out of the picture. And so he gets involved and then boom, the world goes crazy and these kids are released. But out of a freaky incident with some of the Predators. It’s crazy. It’s so crazy. I’m excited for it, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I got a good feeling about it. I mean if it’s really funny, and yet deadly like Predator is.

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.
