Predator gets a new victim: Game of Thrones’ Alfie Allen joins the cast

When it rains, it pours for Alfie Allen: When he’s not being tortured by Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, he’s pissing off Keanu Reeves in John Wick – and it gets worse. He’s just been cast in Shane Black’s reboot of Predator. The hunt is on.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed the news, which adds Allen to a cast that already includes Boyd Holbrook (currently of Logan fame), Olivia Munn, Black Panther’s Sterling K. Brown, and more.

Not much is known about Allen’s role other than he’ll be playing an ex-Marine (he’s not quite ex-Marine material but I’ll let that slide) that joins a group, led by Holbrook, looking to stop the Predator(s) from wreaking havoc on suburban America. Expect lots of explosions, backstabbing and an Arnie reference or two.

Alfie Allen loves playing a slimeball so I’m sure his character will have a trick or two up his sleeve. Hey, as long as he doesn’t kill Predator’s dog and steal his car then he might just live to fight another day...
