A new Predator film has been in development for a while, but it is looking as if things are heating on the project. On the franchise’s official Facebook page, the following image just appeared a few hours ago –
Now combine that with the fact that Fred Dekker, the screenwriter most recently assigned to write a script that would revive the franchise, postedt he following on his own Facebook page last week –
It certainly looks as if 20th Century Fox is moving forward with the screenplay that Dekker has turned in last November.
Currently, Iron Man 3 director Shane Black is set to direct this new Predator iteration, and Black and Dekker (yes, I realize what I did there) collaborated on the 1980s cult classic The Monster Squad. It has been six years since we last saw the alien hunters onscreen in Predators, a film I think is more than a bit underrated. And while audiences may not have been all too eager to see a Predator movie than, has their appetite for one grown over the last half decade?
