Rumor: Robert Rodriguez Producing a Predator Reboot?!
Holy shit! This is one of those news stories that I'm just not sure whether to believe. But I guess Fox did make two complete Alien vs Predator movies, and 10 years ago no one would've believed that would ever happen. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Robert Rodriguez and his Troublemaker Studios are producing a new Predator reboot for Fox. I hate using the term "reboot," but it's literally the most common word you'll hear in Hollywood. And sometimes it can mean good things. Apparently this is the pitch for the reboot: "In the reboot a team of commandoes face down a mysterious race of vicious monsters."
You read that right, monsters, not just a monster. In every past movie involving the Predator species, we've only ever seen one of them for most of the movie. That is, except for the first AvP, where we saw three of them. Either way, I'm both a bit excited and a bit nervous to hear this news. I was never a big Predator fan, so I can't say this makes me jump out of my chair with excitement, but I guess I am very curious to see whether this is indeed true. If it is, then hot damn, because with Rodriguez producing, I'm sure we can expect nothing but badass Predator goodness. How many Predator fans are still out there?
