Former Punisher Star Thomas Jane Joins Predator Reboot

Thomas Jane is in final negotiations with 20th Century Fox to join the cast of Shane Black's Predator reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Details about Jane's role are being kept under wraps.

The 47-year-old actor is best known for portraying the brooding and brutal Frank Castle in The Punisher (2004), the troublemaking drug addict Todd Parker in Boogie Nights (1997), the fearless Carter Blake in Deep Blue Sea (1999), and the level-headed David Drayton in The Mist (2007), as well as starring as the well-endowed Ray Drecker in HBO's Hung.

The film is being directed by Shane Black, best known for directing/co-writing Iron Man 3 (2013) and writing Lethal Weapon (1987). Black co-wrote The Predator script with Fred Dekker (RoboCop 3). Filming will begin next month in Vancouver.

The film is a sequel, not a reboot, and will acknowledge events from the first two films in the action series: Predator (1987) and Predator 2 (1990).

The cast features Narcos and Logan star, Boyd Holbrook (replaced Benicio Del Toro), as a Special Forces commando and Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, Office Christmas Party) as a scientist. Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, and Trevante Rhodes will also appear in the film.
