Director Dan Trachtenberg has reportedly cast actress Amber Midthunder in the lead role of his upcoming Predator film.

Amber Midthunder

Midthunder is best known for her role as Kerry Loudermilk in Marvel and FX’s Legion. She currently stars as Rosa Ortecho in The CW series Roswell, New Mexico.

A previously shared synopsis of the upcoming film reportedly will follow Kee, “a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.”

Here’s are some details that were also previously shared on the character Kee, “Female; 19 years old; Comanche. Her name, ‘Kee’, means “no” in Comanche. A name she has earned by perpetually refusing to do as she is told her entire life. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is “Patsi” – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth-teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.”

This would be a very interesting concept for the Predator franchise and one I would very much like to see. Midthunder brings a very, cool and unique personality to her performances.

20th Century Studios’ upcoming Predator film is about to begin filming in Calgary, Alberta.
