Arnold Schwarzenegger Turned Down 'The Predator' Because of Bad Script

I think we were all excited by the idea of original Predator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger returning for another rumble with The Predator, but after reading the script for Shane Black’s next installment in the franchisee, Schwarzenegger had a change of heart.

They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered,” Arnold tells Yahoo. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.

The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Edward James Olmos, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski, Augusto Aguilera, and Keegan-Michael Key.

The film is written by Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad). Original Predator producers John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are returning to produce the next installment.

Fox will be releasing The Predator on February 9th, 2018.
