During a London cinema podcast event hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, director and writer Shane Black revealed the name of the main character in his upcoming Predator sequel, 'The Predator'! Black also reiterated his enthusiasm to 'event-ise' the Predator franchise again, adding that he hopes the film elicits the same feeling of wonderment as Close Encounters had when it released.
“It’s an attempt to ‘event-ise’ the Predator again,” Black said. “[An attempt to] make it more mysterious. The Predator has been so overdone. Every couple of years, there's a knock-off churned out. Very low budget with a guaranteed return. It doesn't have to be 50 Predators riding motorcycles. It just has to feel like a powerful story that has a lot of flavours and textures.”
Black then went on to reveal that the name of the main character to-be featured in 'The Predator' was named Quinn McKenna. A rather easy name to pronounce and one that could easily suit the nature of a battle-hardened marine, like Schwarzenegger's Dutch before him. This also confirms the lead character will be male, not female. As for who will play Quinn McKenna is still a mystery.
“The hero of the film, the name I've given the guy, is Quinn McKenna.”
Besides the ongoing talks with Arnold Schwarzenegger, casting details for 'The Predator' remain quiet. As new details surface however, we'll be sure to keep you posted! Check back often for the latest updates on Shane Black's inventive Predator sequel, THE PREDATOR!

About The Predator
Shane Black returns to the Predator franchise to direct a new sequel to 1987's Predator! Officially titled The Predator! From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black's explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
