As of this month, the highly-anticipated Predator reboot is officially in the filming stage of production. Director Shane Black (The Nice Guys, Iron Man 3) shared a full cast-photo to announce the beginning of production, and it looks like he's going to keep sharing with fans throughout the entire process.
On Wednesday night, Black tweeted out another official photo from the film. If there was any doubt about the gritty tone of The Predator, this picture should put all that to rest.
The image features six characters - all men - sitting in an old bus. Three of the characters pictured were featured in the original photo that Black released, but the other three are new.
Among these new characters is one played by Game Of Thrones star, Alfie Allen. Also in attendance is Augusto Aguilera, who was the final actor to land a major role in the film.
The big surprise here, however, is the inclusion of former Punisher, Thomas Jane. The veteran actor was rumored to have a role in the film, but this photo confirms that he's a part of the cast.

Based on Black's tweet, and by Alfie Allen's character description, it's safe to say these men are all part of an elite military team. Boyd Holbrook's character is supposed to be leading a group of men into battle against the Predator, and this looks like the team he's taking into battle.
Along with the newcomers, three other cast members appear in this photos. Boyd Holbrook leads the charge, with Keegan-Michael Key and Trevante Rhodes.
