Jake Busey is in The Predator and will the son of Gary Busey’s character from Predator 2


Shane Black (Predator) wrote and directed The Predator. The new film stars Sterling K. Brown (“American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson”), Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Jacob Tremblay (“Room”) – in the front with Black , Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”), Keegan-Michael Key (“Key and Peele”), Thomas Jane (The Expanse) and Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones).

We can also add Jake Busey (The Frighteners, Starship Troopers) to that list. Turns out he will be playing the son of his Dad’s character from Predator 2.

[Shane Black] called me and he said ‘Hey, you wanna do this movie? We don’t have money for you but it’ll be a fun thing to come play and be your father’s son.’ And so as much as I have followed in my Dad’s footsteps career-wise, this is like really following in his footsteps by playing a character who is the son of the character he played, and I don’t think there would be any other forum where I would do that. I think this is the one thing.

If you liked the very first movie a lot, you’ll really like this one. This one has a lot of essence of the first movie.

Nice to have confirmation that the new film isn’t ignoring the previous ones and a cool little connection. I just hope it is a decent movie as I do like a bit of Predator.
