Despite being a direct sequel to the original films, Arnold Schwarzenegger is unlikely to return. Star Boyd Holbrook spoke with We Got This Covered and said that Schwarzenegger’s Dutch is unlikely to make an appearance.

Holbrook said of the new film, “Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real. It’s real fresh. I don’t think you’re going to see Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. It’s horror, science-fiction and a western.”

The film is set to begin filming this month in Vancouver and stars Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay and Sterling K. Brown. Shane Black is directing and wrote the film, which releases on February 9, 2018.
