Per The Hollywood Reporter,  Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner) has joined the cast of The Predator, the new film in the franchise from director Shane Black. Olmos will play a military figure in the sequel, which is currently filming in Vancouver. Olmos will next be seen reprising his iconic role of Gaff in Blade Runner 2049.

The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook (NarcosLogan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Keegan-Michael Key (KeanuKey & Peele), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones) and Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. SimpsonThis is Us).

Details on the film are still under wraps, but the persistent rumor is that the film takes place in suburbia with the Predator slowly revealing himself to be a threat to the film’s heroes.

The original Predator was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien entity that prizes the thrill of the hunt above all else. It was followed by a direct sequel, Predator 2, in 1990 before crossing over with Fox’s Alien franchise for two additional sequels, Alien vs. Predator and AvP: Requiem. In 2010, Nimrod Antal helmed a reboot with a new feature, Predators.

The Predator will be released in theaters on February 9, 2018.
