‘Predator’ Reboot/Sequel In The Works From Director Shane Black

Although he turned down the opportunity to work on the original script in 1986, Iron Man 3 director Shane Black is now being approached to direct a new Predator film that was initially thought to be a reboot but is now being dubbed a sequel. The script will be written by Black’s 1987 Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker and has original producer John Davis on board to produce. There is no word yet as to whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role or how the classic Predator design will be brought to the modern big screen, but considering the failure that was Predators in 2010, I’m not so sure a new sequel will do anymore to help the aging franchise, but maybe Black will surprise me (that’s a lack of faith in overdone sequels, not in Black). Stay tuned.
