The Predator Will Have “Wicked Sense of Humor”

The Predator will have “wicked sense of humor” according to Sterling K. Brown. The Predator maybe 2 months into shooting but we’re still at that point where everyone is being really careful and cagey about what they’re saying.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, The Predator’s Sterling K Brown was asked about the upcoming Shane Black film. As expected he was unable to say much but he did talk a little about the humor and characters in The Predator :

“Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humor to it, which I love about it. And it’s got a real camaraderie amongst the main characters that I think folks will be attracted to. That’s pretty much all I can say.”

 The Predator Will Have

The Predator will have “wicked sense of humor” according to Sterling K. Brown.

Although he wasn’t able to talk more about the The Predator, Brown did speak a little about how he was a fan of the original and shared a fun anecdote about his University friends teasing him about getting Bill Duke-type roles:

“I’m a huge fan of Predator, and, of course, everybody loves Jesse the Body [Ventura] and Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and Carl Weathers and Bill Duke. My friends at Stanford used to tease me — being the dark-skinned African-American man that I am — they’d say, ‘Yo, man, you’re going to start getting all [those] Bill Duke roles when you get older.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t look anything like Bill Duke, you guys can kiss my ass.’ So then I booked this movie and I told them and they’re like, ‘Dude, do you even realize that you’re now Bill Duke???’ And I had to go tell them to kiss my ass all over again.”

    I understand part of the argument, but in fairness there is no attempt in the story to recreate the Predator in terms of action - it is still hunting, killing, taking trophies, executing clever strategy. Those fundamentals will never change regardless of any broader aims.

    As for the question of where and why - again, it's a movie.

    Non sequitur - I hope the kid befriends a predator and cries when he leaves, just to see the reactions of the macho lovers. ;D ;D ;D

    Sorry, that I can deny.

    Huh? It hasn't been leaked by other sources. It is not out in the open. It's not like a ton of people have been given it. Someone could very well assume it was Maxx.

    Lol. I remember when my friend gave the Scream 4 script to somebody he thought he could trust. It was on horror and Scream sites the following day.

    "Prove it liar!" lol I think every person who has said they'd read a script to an unreleased film is going to PASS HARD on THAT.

    Is your source the only leaker of the script? I've heard that numerous people have it and read it, did he pass the script out to all of them? If not he shouldn't have to worry about exposure.

    Certainly they aren't the only one. But that doesn't mean I'm going to expose them to satisfy you, sorry. That's not how I work.

    For all I knew you were just someone taking the leaked script as golden when there's no real proof it is.

    All I can say is that I have good reason to believe it is completely legit. In addition, so does anyone who's seen the script and followed the production - exact roles, character names, set locations, titles, minutiae all add up to it being identical to the script, give or take a few very minor details here and there.

    On the slim chance we all got conned on multiple levels, though, hey - the movie will be that much more exciting.

    Interesting, i just dont see how passing the script to others would expose him if the script has already been leaked by other sources. And to be clear you dont have to apologise to or satisfy me as i dont really care. I like predator but im not a big enough fan to really follow the production closely like i have done with alien covenant.

    SpeedyMaxx, you probably already answered this but I can't read every post I missed, so forgive me if I'm repeating the question: Do you like what you're read? Do you think it's going to be a good movie?

    Because I read it?

    I'm chill, I just never understand what people expect people to say when they have sensitive information and someone opens with the first question of 'how do you know'. It's kind of pointless. Like, what exactly would convince you that would not compromise the source?

    Well for starters I wasn't aware that you know anything more "sensitive" than the draft that's been publicly leaked.

    These spoilers are slowly killing any interest in the movie.

    It's a complete reboot.  If you think otherwise your in denial.  It's S. Black "refreshing" the Pred franchise.  AKA.  Who gives a sh-t about the back story/Dutch/etc.  We've got new blood to pump money out of.  And let it stand that a little nod here and there to the "old" movies can be done in a reboot.  This is horrible. I'm giving up on the Dutch/Arnold angle/story being made whole. Good luck everyone with your "new" "rebooted" Pred franchise.  Makes me appreciate the Alien Universe so much more now.

    It also changes the whole plot of hunting and randers other film nonexistent.

    It doesn't render those films nonexistent; they happened. But this story draws a much clearer distinction between the concept of hunter and Predator and gets into why they hunt for sport as opposed to being strictly natural predators. Also, this is not leading to the kind of movie you are thinking of. In terms of how the Predators behave in this story, regardless of what their strategy is, their execution is what it has always been - kill everything.

    As for trying something different, this is that. Not trying something different would be making another variation on the movie from '87, another straight hunt. Predators tried that and flopped. This story gives the franchise an aim and future purpose. Whether you dig it or not is up to you when you see the movie.

    Provided the film does well, that is the new direction of the franchise.

    In fairness, this script is a lot more overtly humorous than the occasional joke in the original. Shane Black (and Fred Dekker) like a lot of humor with their action, it's the way they are. If you like their work you'll probably be happy; if you don't you might not.

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    You're entitled to feel that way. All I can tell you is I think the story gives the Predators a new complexity and purpose that can allow the franchise to expand between just doing more movies with them hunting over and over and diminshing returns. Watch the film and decide for yourself.

    I`m not saying it has anything to do with Ps per se, but Super Predator concept was introduced in script for Ps. Predators modyfying their genome with verious prey dna to upgrade their efficiency, sounds familiar?

    I don't remember a thing about that in the actual film. I'm not saying it's not in there, but it clearly didn't make an impression. If it was in the script and not the film then it's not relevant. Personally I doubt the creators of this film went so far as to read that.

    Not much of it made into the final film but it was in the script and was not liked by fans.

    Has it even been proven the leaked script is entirely legit? Either way, I've purposefully not read it. I'd rather see it fresh.

    I love Black's writing style, so if the film's in line with his previous works I'm sure I'll love that aspect of it.

    A lot of people losing their shit (not necessarily on here) at Sterling's claim the film will be funny clearly forgot how serious the first one was when Arnie nailed a guy to a post with his knife and told him to "stick around".

    Just look at the first Lethal Weapon that Black wrote - very funny when it wants to be, but hardly a lighthearted movie. It's dark as hell.

    Going back to present time. I still don`t get, how going throught the most generic way, with new film, it`s going to enrich the franchise? Same goes with Super Predator concept. People didn`t like it in 2010, why go back to it?

    I don't find the script generic. I don't think it has any relation to anything in Predators (which not a lot of people saw). You may or may not feel differently when the film comes out.

    You know I just love Predator 2... with all it's whacky elements it still is miles ahead of the dreadful PredatorS which was just an awful homage to the original. I hope the new film goes for the same kind of music that the first 2 films had.
  21. Master
    I can`t convince you, you can`t convince me either. As far as I`m concerned it`s regarded as very good sequel and negativity towards it (paradoxically) I first encountered on AvPGalaxy. To each own I guess.

    Nice link about 'posses' in the 1980s, but the idea that Jamaican druglords have overrun organized crime in Los Angeles in the '90s was both laughable then and now as well as cartoonishly racist.

    2. Similar world as in Robocop, falvor of it`s time.

    RoboCop was dealing with a broadly fantastical future. This was supposed to be our reality with a few extra years. The movie came out in 1990 and posited that in seven years LA would be overrun by rasta dudes and looking like a demilitarized zone.

    You can call my take bullshit all you like, it's how I've felt since the first time I saw it. I think it's a shit sequel, sorry. And I don't think it's ever made much of a huge impression with the general public either, beyond the alien skull near the end.

    Predator is the ONLY sequel that worked. The people who dont like it dont have any ground to stand on in their reasoning.

    • Danny Glover, a talented actor who was middle-aged even then and who plays every action role as though he is about to asphyxiate and die, fighting the Predator
    • The world being some sort of goofy futuristic dystopia in "1997"
    • "Jamaican drug lords"
    • Whatever the deal was with Maria Conchita Alonso's character and a Predator sparing her because she's... pregnant?
    • Bill Paxton showing up to transparently cameo as Hudson the cop
    • Gary Busey's random scene with his tinfoil suit

    I could go on. Sorry, if people like it that's their prerogative, I've just always hated it.

    1. He played thogh as nails cop. Not super commando. He was believable, also it really doesn`t matter if you are in good shape or super shape. Predator will kick your ass anyway.

    4. See that`s one of this small quirks that gives Predator it`s character. He is no Jason and I love it.

    5. Standard Bill Paxton role, as in Terminator or True Lies (always Love you buddy, hope you`re in better place)

    I was very satisfied with Predators, i loved the characters and thought the humor was great, I also loved alien resurrection because it had a different tone and had alot of comic book stile fun, The Predator needs that Joss widen sort of comedy in it.

    Predator is the ONLY sequel that worked. The people who dont like it dont have any ground to stand on in their reasoning. Predator 2 put Predators to shame. That movie was just one giant homage to the first movie with hacky elements like that falcon, the dogs, and those awful "super" predators.

    the disney style jokes in IM3 were terrible but that is obligatory in the mcu, both Predator movies had humour but it was little and dark, i hope they dont go overboard but i dont have good expectations with this movie anyway

    I'm personally not convinced Del Toro was intended for the Holbrook role like some people think. It just never read like a character he does in any way. I think it's likely he could've been up for Nebraska Williams, or the human antagonist - or a military intelligence role that is heavy in the third act. (I think Edward James Olmos may be playing that role now, but it's just a guess)

    Olmos plays general Woodhurst.

    I agree with you. On paper Predators was promising, but the planet shouldn't have been jungle-like. And there should've been more of the new elements e.g. the falcons, the dogs, the river hunter, etc.

    There was no wonder and the cinematography was awful. It looked like a backyard movie and in essence it was. "Make it at TroubleMaker studios, keep it away from our meddling!" So, a Texas backyard. I did enjoy the casting of Brody, Grace, Fishburne, and Goggins though.

    A Predator film that is not a hunt is refreshing and novel and so so so welcome. Shane being inspired by Spielberg, Hawkes and Cameron makes me very happy. All I could remember were Antal and Rodriguez talking about their sole inspiration for Predators: Predator. And boy did they ever get inspired, but not in a good way.

    And why do you think a lot of the top talent they courted all turned it down? I heard it was because Predator is not seen as a cool franchise and kind of shopworn at this point, even with a talent like Black at the helm. And there was even surprise that they managed to snag Del Toro.
  31. SpeedyMaxx
    To be clear: This movie takes place in the exact same universe as all the others. Dutch Schaefer is name-checked more than once. It's only a 'reboot' in the sense that this film is intended to jumpstart the franchise again.

    I'm stating my oppinion as fact and claim I have read the script and/or have inside source I totally can't confirm.  I so cool! No body tried that before, Yeah!

    K

    I'd love to know what your thoughts on Predators is. Don't think I've read them yet.

    I've talked about it before on here. I think it is a passable but unremarkable sequel which looked and felt cheap and kind of tossed-off by the studio. It could've been much more. I liked Brody and some of the cast (not all - there was a point in those years where Alice Braga was the mediocre actress they'd throw into any genre movie) and I had a nice enough time but I was left a bit deflated.

    Predators is also part of the reason I don't believe another jungle action/typical hunt movie a la the original would be a serious hit today. People saw that movie and didn't care; it's time to change things up. This is a much more committed effort on the studio's part to give the franchise to top talent, but it is very different. Whether people like it or not is down to them.

    “Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humor to it, which I love about it. And it’s got a real camaraderie amongst the main characters"

    So just like the first Predator?
