New Predator Film a Sequel NOT a Reboot

Shane Black was working on a new Predator flick for Fox, and at that time it was being reported as a reboot. Twenty-four hours later a lot has changed. Read on for the latest.

As per Collider, "While the initial report said that Black’s new Predator film would be a reboot, Black tells us that he and Dekker see the project as definitely not a reboot, 'as far as Fred and I are concerned anyway,' Black said, adding, 'Why start over when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?'"

"Black said he doesn’t like reboots generally but can 'really get behind inventive sequels,' noting that he likes 'the idea of expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology rather than hitting the restart button.' He went on to say that Dekker, who’s writing the screenplay, is 'perfect' for the project, adding the two had a blast writing the screenplay for The Monster Squad together."

Black will oversee the writing and is also attached to direct.
