The Predator 2018 Cast
Before Arnold Schwarzenegger became governor of California, he was the most popular choice to return to the Predator series to play Dutch. After a long time, in March 2016, Arnold Scwarzenegger will be having lunch with director Shane Black to discuss about The Predator. We hope that Arnie will be Dutch in the movie. In April 2016, 50 Cent said he would have a role in the Predator 2018 movie. Shane Black revealed that the main characters name would be Quinn McKenna.
Back in May, some photos were taken on location in Vancouver depicting some of the cast such as Keegan-Michael Key and Trevante Rhodes driving an armored military transport. What made these photos stand out was the two other cast members wearing Predator suits joining Key and Rhodes.
The Rock who would have took over the Dutch role, but in September 2003, he denied that he has any involvement in The Predator 2018 movie. In 2005, John Cena, was also rumored to be involved in a remake of Predator.
In September 2016, Benicio Del Toro was in talks to join the cast but later dropped out.
In October 2016, Boyd Holbrook was in talks to replace Del Toro. A few weeks later, Olivia Munn was in talks to be playing a scientist in the movie.

When Shane Black spoke about how he became attached to The Predator 2018 movie, he states that he hadn’t initially wanted the job despite Fox getting in contact and asking him to do it. Later on, Black was convinced, it’s all due to Fox’s willingness to make a big budget, “spectacle” movie.
The Predator 2018 Storyline

Older Predator Storylines
Before the Predator reboot news came out in June 2014, people wanted Rodriguez to return to direct sequel to Predators with Adrien Brody. Rodriguez stated in July 2010 that he had a few ideas for Predator 4. He said that The Predator 2018 are set up with a new story, new location and a new world for a potential sequel.
There were all sorts of ideas for a new Predator sequel floating around over the years. There are about three scripts for Predator 3 circulating around the globe.
The first one, written by Sam Park called Predator 3: The Deadlier of the Species. It features Arnold Dutch in New York during a blizzard. A Predator comes to New York trying to kill him.
The second script, written by Robert Rodriguez, is called Predators having set up on a 17th century ship where a Predator stalks the crewman who have to fight with inferior weaponry. The script is rejected because the budget would have been too big – about $150m.
The last one is called The Zoo which brings back both Dutch from Predator and Harrigan from Predator 2. They are captured and brought back to the Predator’s world because they were the only two people to have ever killed a Predator.
