Alfie Allen joins Shane Black's The Predator

Story by Jack Foley

GAME Of Thrones star Alfie Allen has joined the cast of Shane Black’s The Predator.

The British actor will play an ex-Marine who teams with several other outsiders, including one played by Boyd Holbrook, to stop the human-hunting creatures from going on a killing spree in suburbia.

Shooting on the reboot began on Monday in Vancouver, with Holbrook (pf Logan fame) leading an ensemble cast that further includes Room star Jacob Tremblay, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane and Olivia Munn.

Black co-wrote the script with Fred Dekker and is directing the movie, his first since The Nice Guys last year.

Allen is probably best known for his recurring role as Theon Greyjoy in HBO’s Game of Thrones but also memorably played a Russian gangster who kills the wrong dog in 2014’s John Wick.
