New 'Predator' image teases sequel
Back in 2014, Shane Black was reported to be working on another sequel to the 1987 cult classic Predator. Now, the latest installment in the sci-fi franchise has a new teaser image and a possible title.
The official Predator Facebook page shared an image on Monday of the titular extraterrestrial warrior, accompanied by a line from the original: “Here we go again, bro.” The image also suggests that the new film will be titled The Predator.
In June 2014, Black (Iron Man 3) was tapped to direct the project, and at the time, he told Collider that his take was less of a reboot and more of an “inventive sequel,” expanding the existing Predator universe instead of retelling the original. Fred Dekker (RoboCop 3) is writing the script.
John McTiernan directed the original sci-fi action flick, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. (Black himself was asked to work on the original 1987 script, but he appeared in it as an actor, instead.) It was followed by Predator 2 in 1990, Aliens v. Predator in 2004, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007, and Predators in 2010.
