I am legitimately excited for this to happen! Especially with Shane Black attached to direct



If it bleeds, we can kill it

Predator is one of the few movies that left me hungry for more! I wanted sequels, I wanted to know the background mythology and the sequels we got were less than satisfying.

The fact that predators have been alive longer than human existence present some very interesting possibilities such as Predators hunting dinosaurs and interacting with ancient human civilizations.

Hmmm. I don't know if I have any interest left in Predator movies. The last one was so-so. I do think it's interesting that Black had a role in the first one.

I think the only sequel I found amusing was Alien vs. Predator, so hopefully this reboot will deliver.

The action hero movie is definitely a dead genre but the theme of hunter/prey is as old as time.

Using muscle and survival skills to take down an infinitely stronger opponent can make for a fascinating feature amidst the technology and superpower laden movies as of late.

However, it will have to be carefully crafted as not to rehash the prior movies and it's all gonna rest on the leading man/ladies' shoulders.

Well said. I agree with you on all points. I wonder what rating they will go for, considering the violence of previous Predator films.

Wait, didn't they reboot the Predator franchise like 3 or 4 years ago with the Predators film? Now they are re-rebooting it less than 5 years later? Yea, that's not a good sign. I wonder if they will take another crack at those horrible "Versus" films...Alien vs Predator vs Terminator vs Blacula

Wikipedia says it's a sequel following Predator 2.

All the latest ones were mostly eye candy. The original had the suspense that all successors lacked. The one with Danny Glover was just such a huge upset. I was waiting for Arnold til the very end haha

@TDitH: Even if all they do is take the same scene from the original and stick it in after the credits roll? Will that still satisfy your requirement?
