The Predator’s Shane Black Addresses Cut Scene Featuring Sex Offender

Shane Black has responded to a cut scene featuring a registered sex offender in his upcoming film The Predator. The scene and its subsequent omission were brought to light in reports earlier today.

The controversy began when it was revealed that Steven Wilder Striegel played a minor character in the film, appearing in a scene opposite Olivia Munn as a jogger who tries to flirt with her. When Munn found out about his past, she informed Fox about the actor’s criminal record, which prompted Fox to cut his scene from the movie.
