Jake Busey is following in his father's footsteps and has joined the cast of The Predator.

Deadline reports that Ace Levy from Starship Troopers will swap fighting Bugs for a deadly Predator. Jake Busey's dad, actor Gary Busey, starred in the 1990 sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer, Predator 2. Jake Busey's role is being kept under wraps, but wouldn’t it be awesome if he was brought on board as the son of Gary Busey’s character, Peter Keyes?

Jake Busey joins a cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Augusto Aguilera, Keegan-Michael Key and Chuck's Yvonne Strahovski, who was recently cast as young Jacob Tremblay's character's mom.

Rumors surrounding the R-rated 20th Century Fox movie (which is currently filming) include The Predator taking place in the suburbs and featuring a 10-foot-tall genetically enhanced Predator. As I said, those are just rumors (for now) so grain/pinch of salt.

Shane Black (dude also starred in the original Predator movie with Ahnold) directs from a script co-written by himself and Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad, RoboCop 3).

The Predator is slated to open on Feb. 9, 2018. What do you think of the addition of Jake Busey to The Predator?
