The last few days has seen word come out that Shane Black will be rebooting Predator for 20th Century Fox. Speaking to Collider, Black has confirmed that the film will actually be a continuation of the already-established series.
The writer/director said, “Why start over when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?” He then added he can “really get behind inventive sequels.”
This isn’t Black’s first experience with the franchise, having actually played Hawkins in the original Predator. The Iron Man 3 helmer has already brought Fred Dekker in to work on the script for this continuation, and Dekker and Black worked on the screenplay for Monster Squad back in the day.
Expect more on this as it develops.
