The Predator director Shane Black takes 'full responsibility' for painful, controversial casting

The Predator’s key problem is that it lacks the courage to make the titular alien-hunter the leading character

Munn was on The Talk to promote her movie, Shane Black's The Predator, with the discussion inevitably turning to Munn's successful efforts to have a scene from the movie featuring herself and Striegel cut.

The latest installment of the Predator franchise stars Holbrook as Quinn McKenna, an ex-soldier who winds up in some serious trouble when the government finds out he got his hands on some alien tech and shipped it off somewhere. None of that stopped Munn. "I felt that I owed her that call, that apology and I'm very sorry for any pain that she's felt, but I reached out privately". He was not honest with me. Now, Carnes is "reclaiming" her identity and showing her support for Munn's bravery in the face of studio backlash and muted co-stars.

At the movie's Los Angeles premiere on Wednesday, Black apologized for the casting decision and recognized that the PR disaster overshadowed his cast and crew's accomplishment. The offender was an old friend of Black's who had been cast in several of his movies.

After finishing an interview with Tremblay, Munn sat down for a solo interview with The Hollywood Reporter in which she discussed what transpired after the initial bombshell, as well as her justified disappointment in Shane Black and her fellow cast members. I do feel like I've been treated by some people that I'm the one who went to jail or I'm the one that put this guy on set... Also, some of her castmates' statements seemed to dismiss the controversy or didn't always have her back.

The film opened in theatres in Australia on Thursday. But now, with the truth out there, Black has made another apologetic statement taking "full responsibility" for the "stupid decision" he made that came about because the director failed to properly vet the actor. That's irresponsible, and I shouldn't have done it'. "I can understand others might disapprove, as his conviction was on a sensitive charge and not to be taken lately".

He added: "I take full responsibility. It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast". I think about this a lot, I hope I learn from this. I hope I learned from this, because it really bothers me that this movie, which could have been these lovely people on a attractive night with only this, has been overshadowed in some ways by a stupid decision that I made.

More than a decade later, the Predator finally returned to screens, but he had to share screen time with another of cinema's great creatures-the Xenomorph.

Munn said this week that she felt a lack of support from her costars in The Predator after speaking out against Striegel, and some of the actors pulled out of press obligations at the Toronto International Film Festival due to their discomfort over questioning about the story.

"You know, honestly, the people online and the news outlets and the blogs and the social media: Thank God that they exist, and they are expressing all of the thoughts they've been expressing and support", she said. I am not the one who needs to carry that shame.
