Robert Rodriguez Discusses "Predator" Reboot

Posted: April 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Robert Rodriguez Discusses "Predator" RebootSubmit Comment
Robert Rodriguez recently revealed that he will be rebooting the "Predator" franchise by producing the upcoming "Predators" film. It was assumed that he will be directing it as well, but 20th Century Fox has now revealed that no writers or director are on board.

In addition, Fox also set a release date for the reboot, scheduling it for July 7th, 2010. Seems like a short amount of time to go from zero to a complete film, especially since Rodriguez is planning to start lensing "Machete" in June.

Rodriguez is no stranger to the "Predator" franchise. Back in 2004, he spoke about a script he wrote for "Predators," which was planned as a third installment in the franchise. "It was huge, it was a big, big, big budget. And it was really a cool script, but it will never be made. The studio edited it and said there's no way we can make this, this would cost -- even at that time -- 150 million, and no women would ever go see this movie."

According to Rodriguez, who just spoke with AICN, 20th Century Fox got interested in the reboot after discovering that he had written a sequel treatment 15 years ago. "What I'd like to do with it is expand on ideas I dreamt up back in the original treatment, that had really expanded on the universe both the Predators and other species live in," said Rodriguez. "We'd create new otherworldly characters while not taking away from the draw our main Predator has."

Not that it needs a reboot, but he better not screw it up.

Ah, make it a prequel ! and have it end with one predator sent in to earth.

I don't think this is the best decision for him. Seems like he may make it too campy and B-Movieish on purpose. Kinda worried about this one....

Ranger, what a surprise. Due to your stupidity, I forgot you existed for a minute. It's nice to know I have a fan who looks for my comments just to say something about them. If you want an autograph or something, just ask.

Rodriguez isn't directing this, guys. He's just producing.

Don't know if this is really a necessary reboot. If they do wind up doing it, I bet it'll be about as close to the original as I Am Legend was to the novel.

^^Said the guy who searches for my comments on WorstPreviews to try to get attention. LoL. You bring new meaning to "pathetic" Ranger.

And you... new meaning to frustrated closet, playground-stalking, homosexual.

And you give new meaning to "penis infatuation". Why is EVERYTHING you say about penises?
