Here's an Awesome Update for Predator fans! Shane Black, who directed Iron Man 3, is set to write and direct the reboot to the 1987 Arnie classic, Predator!
The original film - a cult classic around the world, where Schwarzenegger's crack military team face off against an advanced alien hunter in the depths of the jungle - has already had a loose sequel, two Alien vs Predator crossovers and a relatively recent installment from Robert Rodriguez, starring Adrien Brody. Fox have since decided, however, that they want to reboot the franchise completely, returning to the '87 jungle. Shane Black has been brought on board to both pen and direct the film, which is an intriguing choice - not so much because of his body of work behind the camera, but because he was actually in Predator alongside Arnie, as the ill-fated Private Hawkins. In other words, he has first hand experience of just what the Predator film was about, and as such, he's likely the best candidate to not screw it up.
What do you think? Are you excited to see Predator rebooted, or would you rather they left it alone, or stuck to doing further installments akin to Predators? Let us know in the comments below!
