News The Predator Will Be the Biggest Franchise Installment to Date Published 3 years ago on March 24, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Fans have been waiting a long time the new installment in the Predator franchise, which is currently titled The Predator. The next film will be written by Fred Dekker and Shane Black, with Black also planning on directing. The latest update is from Thrillist, who spoke to Shane Black about the next installment and the pre-production process. From what was talked about, everything sounds like good news. According to Black, The Predator will be the biggest one in the franchise to date. “[Fox] called me and I was reluctant,” said Black, who had a role in the original Predator. “I said, ‘Look. You guys at Fox, I mean, I enjoy these movies, but we’ve been churning out these AVP whatever, they each cost a certain amount of money, they’re okay, but there’s no effort to elevate them or make them any kind of an event.’ They’re just sort of another Predator. They said, ‘What if we said to you we want to reinvent this, and really treat it with as much of an event status, or as much hoopla as we would the Alien prequel, which is coming out also? We really want to make this something. The kind of movie that people line up for.’ I said, ‘Really, you’ll spend a bunch of money?’ They go, ‘Yep.’ I go, ‘Make it really scale, spectacle?’ ‘Yep.’ ‘Shit, that sounds interesting.’” “I think the first one was great, and it was contained, and it was a perfect little gem for what it was,” Black continued. “I think there’s an expansion that needs to take place, and also just a love for that era, that movie, and the mythology of the Predator. I think that they came to me knowing pretty much that… they said, basically, if I wanted to make Predator but treat it like it was Iron Man III instead of just another little movie. I said, ‘Let’s really do it right this time.’” And is Arnold Schwarzenegger back? “Still in talks, script still a secret.” The Predator will be hitting theaters on March 2, 2018.
