The upcoming Predator movie, the fourth in the series, is one inch closer to becoming a reality. The script by Fred Dekker has been turned into the studio as confirmed on his personal Facebook page. Shane Black, who directed Iron Man 3, is taking the helm on this latest entry in the franchise, who in fact, is a long time longtime collaborator with Dekker. The duo actually first worked together in creating the original 1987 sci-fi horror classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger . .
No story details have been revealed for this new film. And it isn’t known if it will directly continue the story set up in the previous movies, but it is a sequel and not a remake or reboot. The last entry was 2010’s Predators, director by Nimród Antal and produced by Robert Rodriguez.
Perhaps this new outing will work in straightening the narrative, tying everything that has come before. In turn, it will also be able to hand the franchise off to a new set of characters that could be carried over in future sequels, something that hasn’t happened with any of the previous films. It’s possible that Shane Black could bring back any of the former stars, including Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers and Danny Glover . . .
