PREDATOR 5: Plot Details For Upcoming Reboot Revealed; Franchise May Be Heading To The Past
On Friday, the news broke that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg is set to take the helm of a new Predator movie, and we now have some plot details for the upcoming reboot. Check it out...
On Friday, we learned that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will take the helm of the next Predator movie. It sounds like some sort of surprise announcement was originally planned, and it's possible we weren't supposed to know it was a Predator movie until we were actually watching it!
Last December, it was reported that Trachtenberg was developing a movie for 20th Century Studios called Skulls which was written by Patrick Aison and set to be produced by longtime Predator franchise producer John Davis. At the time, it was said that, "'Skulls' will follow a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior."
Now, AVP Galaxy is reporting that the two projects are indeed one and the same.
Apparently, "Predator 5 will be set in the past (finally!) where it will focus around Native Americans before the territories were taken by the American settlers, featuring a First Nations cast."
This won't be the first time the franchise has explored Native American Culture as the comic book series (and novel) Predator: Big Game did exactly that. It's definitely an interesting, and exciting premise for the property, but if this doesn't work after 2018's reboot...well, that could be it for Predator on the big screen (there's certainly still potential for the horror villains on television, though).
Are you excited for this latest reboot?
