When word came down yesterday that Iron Man 3's Shane Black was being put in charge of the future of the Predator franchise, one word that kept being thrown around was "reboot." Included in just about every trade report, the word suggested that the franchise would be starting over from scratch and ignoring the continuity of the earlier movies. This, however, turns out to not be the case.
Black has signed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox that will see the filmmaker take the helm of a brand new Predator reboot. In addition to directing the movie, Black is also writing the treatment for the project, which he will then turn over to Fred Dekker - Black's co-writer on 1987's Monster Squad - who will pen the screenplay. Details about the project remain unclear, but the trade report suggests that the film could be planned as a relaunch of the 80s franchise.
Arriving in Hollywood from his home country of Belgium back in the mid-80s, Jean-Claude Van Damme was able to establish himself as one of the biggest names in the action genre... and generated some interesting stories on his way to fame. One of the more popular stories about the actor is that he was actually originally hired to play the titular monster in John McTiernan's 1987 movie Predator - a role he was eventually let go from.
Whether it be for prank calling purposes or simply our own personal amusement, those Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboards exist for a reason. The Austrian actor has a distinctive accent and a vast catalog of great movie lines. And while many of us probably think we do a pretty great Schwarzenegger impersonation, none are quite as spot-on as the man himself.
What exactly is being teased here is unclear at this point. Are they announcing a new film - and if so will it be a sequel or a reboot? Or could it be a television show? Or perhaps a video game? If it is a film, it would likely be announced during the 20th Century Fox panel on Saturday. As of now the only confirmed titles set to be a part of the presentation....
If you thought LebowskiFest was weird, just imagine attending “The Arnold Classic”. It’s an annual fitness event hosted by the great Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, and attended by legions of slavish and probably a little too-pumped up fans. This thing actually exists and since he’s about to leave public office and return to private life, the Governator...
One of the most recognizable and easiest to imitate screams in Hollywood is that of the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwartzenegger. His trademark “NYEEEEEAAAH!” has been heard on screen and off for the last 30
John McTiernan’s film Predator is an 80s classic, a mixed-genre masterpiece that perfectly blends action, sci-fi and horror into something beautiful. It spawned one of the internet’s greatest memes
They ignored all the inferior garbage that's happened with the Predator name attached to it since, and set out to make a direct sequel to the only really good movie in the entire Pred series. It didn't work, at least not
The premise behind the new Predators movie is pretty simple. A tribe of Predators kidnaps the most deadly killers on Earth, drops them in a game preserve, and has some fun. Sure to be one of those deadliest killers is Isabelle
The first ever trailer for the Robert Rodriguez produced sequel Predators has arrive and, hopefully, you’ll think it’s every bit as badass as I did when I first saw it last Friday. Now's your chance to drink it all in
The cast of Robert Rodriguez's Predator reboot runs a weird gamut from highbrow-- Adrien Brody-- to lowbrow-- Danny Trejo-- and a lot of room left in the middle-- Topher Grace, good to see you! But chalk one up today for the lowbrow team
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Don’t listen to Robert Rodriguez. The brilliant Austinite director is notorious for his ability to shoot movies quickly, but he’s even better and promising to shoot them
Everybody wants Arnie, or at least they do if they’re taking over one of his franchises. McG wanted him so much he digitized him and threw down a CGI Schwarzenegger in Terminator Salvation
Robert Rodriguez is resurrecting the Predator movies for Fox. They’re calling it a “reboot”, which is Hollywoodspeak for “we’re gonna remake this bitch and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
