Yes, FOX is rebooting the Predator series. This time they have recruited the scribe of Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and Iron Man 3. The Hollywood Reporter broke the exclusive story “Black will write the treatment for the project, then will hand over scripting duties to Fred Dekker, his university chum with whom he wrote 1987’s Monster Squad. Black will oversee the writing and is also attached to direct’.
The nice little kicker to this story is that Shane Black actually appeared in the original film as one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s team, Hawkins (see pic below). This will mark the fourth official sequel, not counting the Alien vs. Predator spin-offs.
Is the word reboot really necessary? Predators wasn’t that bad, though it seriously lacked an Arnold cameo. Sound off below Maniacs!
