Shane Black’s ‘The Predator’
« on: June 25, 2014, 05:44:52 PM »
Exclusive: Shane Black Says His PREDATOR Film Is a Sequel, Not a Reboot
Quote from: Adam Chitwood
While the initial report said that Black’s new Predator film would be a reboot, Black tells us that he and Dekker see the project as definitely not a reboot, “As far as Fred and I are concerned anyway,” Black said, adding “Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?”  Black said he doesn’t like reboots generally, but can “really get behind inventive sequels”, noting that he likes “the idea of expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology, rather than hitting the restart button.”  He went on to say that Dekker, who’s writing the screenplay, is “perfect” for the project, adding the two had a blast writing the screenplay for The Monster Squad together.  Indeed, the result of their previous collaboration makes the prospect of the new Predator film even more enticing.

More often than not, a reboot is a lazy way of avoiding the hard work of coming up with a new idea, and instead choosing to use the blueprint of what came before.  What Black and Dekker have planned for Predator, however, sounds like something fresh yet in step with the spirit of the original films, and that’s worth getting excited about.  Just exactly what portions of the Predator mythology will be mined for this new film are under wraps for now, but I’m eager to see what surprises Black and Dekker have up their sleeves.

They can ignore everything after the first Predator for all I care.  Get Arnold back and have Black play Hawkins identical twin brother Hawkins!

I for one actually LOVE Predator 2. But I don't really mind them doing another sequel that ignores it. I am sure it will be much better than Predators. Which I liked the first time seeing it in the theater (with some nagging issues), but when I bought the DVD I saw nothing but the problems.

The first two films are terrific, and PREDATORS and the two AVP films were okay. I love that this will be a sequel of sorts. As long as it's not a remake, but a film that could pass for a sequel to the original, then I'm happy with more.

I really want to see a movie like this, that's inspired by an 80's movie go all practical.  I'd love to see a modern movie without CGI elements.

I don't care if it's a sequel or a remake, more Predator movies = happy Scott.

Shane Black’s ‘Predator’ Sequel Is Called ‘The Predator’; First Poster Revealed
That tagline is either a) pre-emptively predicting the inevitable porn parody, or b) not very optimistic about the movie's theater attendance.
