We reported back in August that a new Predator sequel was in the works, under the direction of Iron Man 3 director, Shane Black. We now have an update. Black and co-writer Fred Dekker have finished and turned in the script, according to a post by Dekker on Facebook.
Much of the details about the sequel are being kept hush-hush, but producer John Davis told Collider in an interview: “The writing is so fresh, the perspective is so fresh. I’m telling you you’re going to get something you don’t expect and you’re going to say, “This is the most entertaining way to reinvent a franchise.” “
Black has had experiencing with Predator before. He played the role of “Hawkins” in the original 1987 film. The original also featured Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of the Special Forces team who comes face to face with the Predator in the jungle of Central America, while on a mission.
