Black told JoBlo that ‘The Predator’ is more of a sequel than a reboot. “…has to stand on its own two feet, but our goal is to make sure it acknowledges that, yeah, it is 30 years later in the continuity of the story. In other words, Dutch Schaefer’s patrol, which was attacked and largely slaughtered, happened 30 years ago in the context of the story. It’s referenced, it’s part of the mythology. In that way, it’s more of a sequel than a reboot.

Shane Black, who starred in the original film, will be directing from the script penned by Fred Dekker. The original 1987 film’s producers John Davis, Lawrence Gordon and John Davis will produce the new film as well. We will have to wait for a while before we see it, Fox has set the theatrical release date for February 9th, of 2018. We will update you when we know more.
