Shane Black Says “He Wants The Predator To Stay On Earth” And More!

Arnold Schwarzenegger Might Make a Return in the New Predator Film

SciFiNow recently talked with director Shane Black on the present state of The Predator, and it’s all pretty exciting stuff. We can confirm that it will not be a reboot. Continue reading to find out what Black had to say about the next installment in the iconic franchise.

“Audiences are so familiar with these make-ups now. You don’t want the movie with ‘John, there’s an alien in the barn.’ And then, ‘God dammit… the Predator’s at the pigs again!’ There’s that sense of having seen and done it with these movies, but I want to change that. I want to make it a powerful mystery story that has a sense of Close Encounters about it. We’re going to peel the onion and find out what’s going on, so I really look forward to it.

“I’m getting more excited about it every day,” Black continues. “At first they had to talk me into it, but now I think we’re good.”

Black went on to tell SciFiNow that: “Its a sequel in the present day of 2018, which is when the movie comes out. I don’t want to go to another planet right now. I want to stay on Earth, so that’s where we’ll be.”
