For those of you who didn’t catch the live chats with producer Robert Rodriguez yesterday, here’s the main points that came out of it:
- There will be no female Predators. Some concept art was made at the production before they had a proper script in place.
- He confirmed the planet is a hunting planet and not the Predator homeworld.
- The original Predator in the leaked draft has pretty much the same role in the movie.
- There is a clan war between both tribes of Predators.
- He said the Arnie cameo in an early draft was a ‘false ending’ only written in there so they could track it if the script leaked. Speaking of the leaked script, the leaked script was fake though it in-cooperates many elements. (The shooting script probably has additional dialogue here and there but it will still be the same story).
- He said the character of Nolan wasn’t written with Arnie in mind.
- The original Predator will have green blood but he doesn’t know what colour blood the new Predators will have. (In the leaked script, it was black).
- Some character changes: Edwin is a disgraced physician and Stans is on the FBI’s most wanted list.
- Predator 2, AvP and AvP Requiem are generally ignored with this movie. (That’s not to say it breaks continuity though I think the damage of continuity was already done with Requiem).
You can listen to the first chat over on YouTube but the other two haven’t been uploaded as of yet.
