Predator (Shane Black sequel)


Recommended Posts



as for Shane, taken from elsewhere:


you do realize that Shane Black wrote / co developed the original and was cast so that he could keep an eye on production aka Mc Tiernan since it was on location. Thats why he dies so quickly in the movie. Black isn't new to the Predator franchise he's integral to the whole thing.

Fucking love the Predator series - especially the original. It wasn't until I saw Iron Man 3 and started researching all that went into making it - that I learned that Shane Black was the 'Jeez, you got a big pussy!' - guy. Freakin' mind-blown!


Plus, he had a hand in a lot of other stuff - he was like, the 80s action-writer guy. He even had a hand writing one of my all-time favs, 'Last Action Hero'. I know it's considered a bomb - I saw it in the theater (LeJeune Cinema 6!), and walked outta there spellbound. Fell in love w/ the concept n' loved the homage to all things action. What kid didn't wish he could go inside the movie? (Well, I did - at least.)

It's moving right along, and begins filming this fall.


In an interview with Empire, Black revealed the main character’s name – and it ain’t Dutch.

The name I’ve given the [hero] in The Predator right now is Quinn MacKenna,” said Black, “And that may change.”

Black also noted that there’s a good reason we know so little about this project.

We live in a culture where everyone’s like, ‘[i want to] know everything about it before it comes out, and I want to be able to see every moment, and I’m gonna go back and forth on the goddamn YouTube channel and get every goddamn moment and every Easter egg,'” Black pointed out. “[but] I’ll tell you a little bit about it. It’s an attempt to event-ize the ‘Predator’ and make it more mysterious. ‘The Predator’ has been so overdone in a way —very low budget with a guaranteed return; every couple of years there’s a knock-off churned out. It’s gotta get to the point where people buy their tickets in advance instead of saying, ‘Oh, honey, look; another ‘Predator’ movie. No, Adam Sandler’s got this thing on TV; let’s do that instead.'”

“I want people to say, ‘’The Predator’ is coming, I know it’s coming, we want to see it, it’s mysterious, interesting, it’s got the same sense of wonderment and newness that ‘Close Encounters’ had when that came out,'” he continued. “That’s what we want. That’s very impossible to achieve, but we’re going to try.”

The Predator will arrive in theaters on February 9, 2018.

...Guys, I mean I know I do a nerd show but like - I try and never go full super sayan nerd. I never want to be comic book shop guy on the Simpsons nerd.


...I have however, read a lot of predator novels and comics and the concept that the predators would try and hybrid themselves kinda disgusts me. 


I want this movie to be good, I've been hyped for this movie since they said it was being made...and then I heard that line and I got angry. I love the predator series a lot and this just hurts my heart.

I assumed from the line that since they are the ultimate hunters or whatever, that they were going to hybrid themselves to make themselves stronger faster better - with predator dogs and acts and whatever. 


Or maybe this is all a marketing ploy to get predators to drive prius's . Either way this sounds horrible. 





The scene we witnessed being shot involved Jacob Tremblay‘s character being chased by an intergalactic canine, a “Predator Dog”.
