How are you building franchises?
The franchises we make still need to be original. “Deadpool” was part of a cinematic universe, but it felt unique. We’ve got a “Predator” film coming out that is unexpected and utterly fresh. I just imagined that it would take 500 hours to read the script — that it would be interior jungle, exterior more jungle and then fighting happens, but Emma [Watts] went out and recruited Shane Black. From the first page, it didn’t read like a “Predator” film. It’s set in suburbia. There’s a little boy and his dad at the center of the action.

She used the suburbia buzzword! *fans everywhere triggered, Shane Black triggered*

Antal's inspiration? Predator.

Black's? Close Encounters.

'Nuff said.

Shane is a real filmmaker. Thanks Emma.

Second time we've heard the word "fresh" when describing the script

Suburbia. Could be interesting? I've been trying to keep in the dark about this as much as possible but I couldn't resist finding out the location. Not so sure about this though. Cautiously optimistic?  It could go either way... the next Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the next ET!? Or the next AVP:R?

It's a natural evolution from Predator 2. 

Although I would like to see a more exotic location like the jungle in Predator.  Not another jungle, though, but some other environment.

It's weird how the jungle in Predator looks more alien than the 'alien planet' jungle in Predators.

And how does that make him a 'real filmmaker'?

Sounds like The Predator will probably just be a mix mash of Ghostbusters and Friday the 13thif you ask me.  The little boy "at the center" is probly the kid that kills the thing in the end too.  The best should we could hope for now is some nudes like in those Friday the 13th movies just to keep it interesting.

This is starting to sound almost like a PG-13 movie. :laugh:

I wouldn't worry about that. Shane Black's made it pretty clear in the past that it's going to be an R.

“And, just to be clear… PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed… a lot.”

A predator film set in suburbia I think is a great location. We had jungle and city already, so this could be cool. The kid thing doesn't bother me. I don't think a kid is going to hunt the predator.   At least I hope not, but we had a kid in Predator 2 briefly. So I think the kid will be a minor character obviously. Probably a marines son or something like that, that will have small parts. :)

The kid is important in the plot, and he's got many scenes in the movie.
