Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight) has joined the cast of Shane Black’s upcoming film The Predator. The 20th Century Fox film is part of the Predator franchise, a film series that centers on a merciless alien like the monster Xenomorphs in Aliens. Fun Fact: the two iconic alien species featured in Alien Vs. Predator, though, the film wasn’t well received by critics. Rhodes will play Boyd Holbrook’s ex-marine best friend. Holdbrook will lead the ensemble cast.
Rhodes is one of Moonlight’s breakout stars and the film is being hailed as one of the top award contenders for the Academy’s Best Picture nomination. Moonlight is a coming of age story about a young gay African American male coming of age in Miami during the “War on Drugs” Era.
