According to THR, the 70-year-old actor will portray a "military character."
The Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated actor is known for his memorable roles in Battlestar Galactica, Agents of SHIELD, Blade Runner, Miami Vice, and Stand and Deliver. Aside from The Predator, Olmos recently landed a role in the Sons Of Anarchy spin-off series Mayans MC and will appear in Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049.
The Predator is being directed by Shane Black, who is best known to our community for directing and co-writing Iron Man 3 (2013) as well as penning Lethal Weapon (1987). Black co-wrote The Predator script with Fred Dekker (RoboCop 3).
The film is a sequel, not a reboot, and will acknowledge events from the first two films in the sci-fi action series: Predator (1987) and Predator 2 (1990).
The cast features Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, Office Christmas Party), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O. J. Simpson), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Augusto Aguilera (Chasing Life), and Jake Busey (Starship Troopers).
Production commenced last month and filming is currently taking place in Vancouver.
