Jake Busey Joins The Predator Cast










Here is a tidbit of news which might finally spark some positive interest in Shane Black’s Predator sequel again. Jake Busey is following in the footsteps of his father and will be appearing in the film. His role is unkown, but readers of this site will be well aware that Gary Busey played Peter J. Keyes in Predator 2, an agent who, together with his team, was intent on capturing “a fucking alien.”

Although he’s not exactly a big star, his career never really seeming to have taken off, Jake Busey does have some of his old man’s charisma and I for one think he has a likeable screen presence. Apparently, he just finished filming season 3 of the From Dusk Till Dawn TV series. The question is, will he be playing the son of agent Peter J. Keyes, perhaps seeking revenge for his old man’s death?  That would provide Black’s film with a more tangible connection to Predator 2, the last real Predator film, and that would be welcome at least.

    It would be nice if they referenced P2 in this movie. It’ll be funny if all the shit movies that followed it thought themselves too good to even acknowledge it.

    But then again I heard once those Strausse guys tried to recruit Baldwin from P2 but he said no.

    Finally, someone who genuinely exudes proper manliness… even if it is batshit-crazy manliness.

    I did not agree with these 2 critics on many occasions, however like so many film fans the eighties and nineties, I grew up watching the show. Like so many other critics they gave thumbs down to a lot of shit I liked, however sometimes they would get into some arguments that were funny.

    Finally, some good news… Busey & Tom Jane are about the only pieces of good news we have about this movie so far (aside from Black writing & directing).

    I really want this to be an instant classic, but I’m far more ambivalent than I should be considering this is an R-rated Predator movie from Shane Fkn Black. Don’t fuck it up Shane, please!!
