My favorite Arnie flick from the ’80s was easily Predator. The later films in the franchise really sucked, but that original was a fantastic movie that gave us iconic characters and one-liners like “GET TO DA CHOPPA!” Sadly, I didn’t buy Adrien Brody at all in Predators, the entire movie left me disappointed.
It looks like another Predator film is in the works with reports indicating that a new script has been handed in and a teaser image turning up on Facebook. The image shows an old-school looking predator with his shoulder cannon thingy and a tagline “You’ll Never See Him Coming.”
The script is reportedly being written by Shane Black and Fred Dekker. Black was a supporting actor in the original Predator and worked on the script. He also wrote Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout, both ’80s flicks that I loved growing up. Dekker wrote some cheesy ’80s horror flicks, and also wrote episodes of Tales from the Crypt.
I want to watch this movie, like now.
