Yes, Fox are rebooting Predator..again. THR report that the studio will relaunch the franchise with Shane Black on board to write the initial treatment, and then possibly direct. The actual script will be provided by Black's pal, Fred Dekker, with whom he wrote '80s cult favorite Monster Squad with. I'm sure you're asking yourself why they don't simply follow on from the last flick Predators (which wasn't great to be fair) with a new cast and setting, but this is the way things are done in Hollywood now and that's that. John Davis, who produced the original with Joel Silver and Lawrence Gordon, will also produce the reboot. What do you guys make of this?

This could be epic, or it could flop.

But I am leaning towards 'epic'.

Shane Black back doing Predator...yes please.
dio - 6/24/2014, 12:34 PM
Shane Black was brought on to polish up and fix the original Predator as well.
McGee - 6/24/2014, 12:34 PM
So it'll be set during Christmas.

....is what you're telling me.

I thought that Predators was enough of a reboot/sequel that they could go on from there. Loved that movie. I mean reboot or not, surely they can't completely redesign a creature so iconic?!
TheBeard - 6/24/2014, 12:39 PM
it will be set during Christmas is the first thing i thought as well
TheBeard - 6/24/2014, 12:39 PM
*because of Shane Black
batz11 - 6/24/2014, 12:40 PM
Where did Predators with Adrian Brody 'fit' in this realm of movies?
BmacAttack - 6/24/2014, 12:44 PM
We just going to ignore the fact that he was actually in the original predator? Okay then.
McGee - 6/24/2014, 12:45 PM
Yes we are.
GrayFox1025 - 6/24/2014, 12:46 PM
Will Arnold play an aging Dutch in this as well?
McGee - 6/24/2014, 12:47 PM
Wait... Did cipher show us Black before he made the Mandarin funny?
SpiderFraud - 6/24/2014, 12:51 PM
I'll give it a chance...ready for a trailer.

I actually really, really enjoyed Predators(2010)
SuperCat - 6/24/2014, 1:00 PM
Yeah, I'll see it.
smgmayhem - 6/24/2014, 1:01 PM
@alibaba - It was a good movie, I always wondered where they came from and they answered that question really well in the movie.
fettastic - 6/24/2014, 1:02 PM
It will have 3 things:

1) Lots of inane banter
2) A kid for daddy-like-bonding
3) A really [frick]ing annoying, short idiot character
BlackHulk - 6/24/2014, 1:02 PM
I can see it now. The Predator will turn out to really be Ben Kingsley. Ole, Ole Ole Ole
DoomXfactor - 6/24/2014, 1:02 PM
Is it taking place during Christmas with a stupid twist that the Predator is an actor in a costume?
smgmayhem - 6/24/2014, 1:02 PM
Staring: Adrien Brody and Adrien Brody's Nose

smgmayhem - 6/24/2014, 1:03 PM
Haha... but seriously I will watch it
DoomXfactor - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
Luis Suarez as the Predator
bobevanz - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha all these christmas jokes are great! Of course it will be set during Christmas. This is doomed for failire.... JUST LIKE IRON MAN 3!!! lulz
Highflyer - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
Can anyone imagine how pissed off fans would be if at the end of the movie, the final predator takes off his mask and is revealed to be an actor???
DrKinsolving - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
They should make an "Expendables" - like Predator, to me that's basically what the first one felt like, it had Arnold, Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura, they should update it, include The Rock, maybe bring back Arnold, Stalone, Chris Hemsworth, Terry Crews....
MexicanSuperman - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
As long as it keeps him away from Deathnote film adaptation, I'm good.
Gusto - 6/24/2014, 1:05 PM
Ohhh...Nomis will love this.
ruadh - 6/24/2014, 1:06 PM
Alpha, what was his ONE hit?
MexicanSuperman - 6/24/2014, 1:07 PM
Ironman 3 was great minus the kid scenes. I don't know if Black style will blend well with Predator.
FantasticSpidey - 6/24/2014, 1:08 PM
Nothing says Predator like Christmas.

In all seriousness Shane is a great director and had it not been for the twist in Iron Man 3 (which I had no problem with) he would not be getting all the flack everyone gives him. The movie is still great in my opinion, with or without the twist.
