If there are two things Shane Black knows how to work with, it's working with smart kid actors and the Predator franchise. So naturally his return to said series with The Predator was going to include yet another young talent, and that talent happens to be Room's Jacob Tremblay. While he may be young, he certainly knows his Predator references - or at least, someone close to him does. Take a look at his celebratory tweet below:
Fans of Tremblay's could find this hysterical tribute on Twitter, which shows the young actor ready to take on the legendary alien hunter. However, given that Jacob Tremblay will be playing an autistic child who can decipher the language of the Predator species, there may not be as much carnage between him and his extraterrestrial co-stars as we thought. Still, should there be any sort of fighting between Tremblay and The Predator, we wouldn't be surprised if there's some sort of ace up his sleeve that equals the playing field.
Who could blame Jacob Tremblay for celebrating, as landing his role in The Predator is probably his biggest gig in his post Room career. Though that's not to say he hasn't been busy as he's still been racking up credits in films like Shut In and Before I Wake, as well as TV shows and specials like The Last Man on Earth and Funny or Die's Donald Trump's The Art of The Deal: The Movie. Still, knowing Shane Black's work with both dialogue and action, this could possibly be the most challenging role for Tremblay in his career.
We must admit, after Jacob Tremblay dropped that epic Schwarzenegger reference, we've been hearing those magic words ringing through our heads. And we bet you've heard them, too. So let's just take a moment, and relive the classic moment from Predator that we've all been waiting for. Feel free to quote along with us, courtesy of the video below.
The Predator will hit theaters on February 9, 2018, while Before I Wake still looking for a release date at some point this year.
