HOLY SH!T: Fox Is Ready To Reboot ‘Predator’


Do you hear that faint sound reminiscent of nerds in agony? Don’t worry, you are not going crazy. The screams you hear are real, and they are coming out of the mouth of every movie blogger and entertainment critic around the globe because Fox is allegedly ready to reboot a franchise millions have loved for decades: Predator.

According to THR, Lethal Weapon creator and Iron Man 3 director Shane Black has been tapped to write a treatment for a brand new reboot of Predator. Black will write the treatment for the project, then hand over scripting duties to Fred Dekker, his university chum with whom he wrote 1987’s cult classic The Monster Squad. Black will oversee the script writing and is also attached to direct.

The original predator made its debut in theaters way back in 1987. The film starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, and Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura as a team of commandos being hunted deep in a jungle by an extraterrestrial force. A sequel, Predator 2, arrived in 1990.

You may also recall that Adrien Brody led a team of largely recognizable faces into the unknown once more in 2010 for Predators, but as someone who has seen that film I am opting to not speak of it any further. If you’ve seen it, you understand.

No release date has been given for the reboot of Predator, but it does seem like the project is already well on its way towards becoming a reality. We will continue to follow any new developments and update you as new informations becomes available. Until then, revisit the first film with the clip below:

    I liked Predators a lot, actually. It wasn’t amazing, but definitely miles ahead of a lot of the sci-fi actioners that have been coming out. I would love to see a reboot, as long as they didn’t have any Xenomorphs, jungles, or major American cities involved this time.

    I liked it too. Adrien Brody may not have been the best choice but I thought the movie was pretty awesome.
