The Predator Returns to Vancouver in March for Reshoots

It appears Shane Black’s The Predator is heading back to Vancouver in March for three weeks of additional shooting. A production list that was published on The Director’s Guild of Canada website cites many movies and TV Shows – one of which is “Ollie” which is of course the production name of The Predator. The crew will be heading back to Vancouver, British Columbia to do reshoots between March 12th and March 29th.

 The Predator Returns to Vancouver in March for Reshoots

The Predator returns to Vancouver in March 2018. (^ Awesome fanart by Vitalii Smyk)

Hopefully, the filmmakers have taken on board any criticism that cropped up in the test screenings a few months ago. Not sure where this leaves The Predator trailer which was rumoured to be released some time this month. For comparison sake, both the initial trailers for Predators and AvP were released in March and they were both Summer movies. I don’t think we have much longer to wait. The Predator is still slated for release on August 3, 2018 in both the US and the UK.

    The three days of arguing with him makes sense now lol 🙄 What a story that would be to tell my buddies, " so bro what have you been up 2 " .. " ahh nothing much just arguing with Shane black!!! " lmao 😂
    EVIL we should upload pictures of ourselves so I can verify I'm not Shane Black and you could verify you're not a director of something competing with The Predator ;D
    You're both Shane Black and Fred Dekker. Playing a comedy.

    Look on the bright side guys, those of us who are aware of the spoilers can just sit back and enjoy the film for what it is.  We don't have to be dumbfounded by the canonical changes (that is if you get dumbfounded by such things).  I'm excited and can't wait!  I'm just going to fall in line with all the other casual movie-goers, and have a blast!  I'm thankful that a group of individuals are working their butts off to allow me to enjoy another outing with my most beloved movie monster of all time.  After "Predators", I didnt think i would have the pleasure to do it again. I'm glad there are re-shoots, it's normal and positive.  Remember, negative fan reviews can kill a movie franchise just as fast as the box office can. Imagine the possibilities of a sequel to this film.  We could see a possible Yautja war, or maybe even more of their homeworld! Good time to be a fan guys. Good time.

    P.S. I think that HOLLYWOOD is secretly Shane Black.

    I think Black and Dekker have entered the territory of science fiction and on which they do not know what to do since they have no experience. It's not their genre.

    That's a damn shame, I was hoping The Predator wouldn't downright contradict past films.
    I'm okay with learning more and exploring more, plus introducing predators with different motives, but I'm hoping the narrative inconsistencies aren't too blatant to ignore.
    narrative inconsistencies is very very serious.I would say it makes no sense what the predators in past films were doing, because they had more important things to do.

    But don't you think that doesn't prevent the preds in predator 1 & 2 to

    As I understand it this is largely excised from the film in it's current state.
    I hope that this is so but what will then remain of all that they wrote. It would be easier for them to write a new script and not to rewrite this one. They cut out the core of the movie and the bridge to the continuations of the series.Although judging by the photo they did not change anything.It is a pity that Shane did not know this

    I have to stress I really want this film to be a successful film , whether I like it or not is irrelevant, however I'm annoyed and scared that if this flops , the predator franchise will be over and it will be the final nail in the coffin . I prey to god that it won't be the case , but my concerns  and dislikes are understandable. I just hope the script was worked on more prior to filming , but after the leaked script of 2010s predators , being leaked and accurate. Is this history just repeating itself again ?

    Isn't that a bit far fetched though ? Again the narrative has already been established. If you can't create the mystery of the first because the audience now know what a predator looks like
    , you could also argue that you can't can't go against the narrative because the audience already knows why they come here.

    "attack of the clones and especially phantom menace were dreadful , yet they were not made by Disney they were made by the Star Wars man himself George Lucas . I haven't seen TLJ yet but rogue one was awesome ."

     
    Agreed.

    Meanwhile, back on topic, wonder if the reshoots will include that awesome Arnie cameo I need in my life.....

  15. EVIL the PREDATOR
    Hollywood do you understand why my view is this film is being reduced to a "dumb monster movie" now ? I'll say it again you can't wipe what has gone before . It then just becomes a creature feature with no soul .
  16. EVIL the PREDATOR
    Bonesaw that's quite a broad statement , if they were poor , people wouldn't go and watch them would they ? Look at the hype for infinity war .. that hype wouldn't exist if what came before was bad.

    Also you didn't explain yourself ..  attack of the clones and especially phantom menace were dreadful , yet they were not made by Disney they were made by the Star Wars man himself George Lucas . I haven't seen TLJ yet but rogue one was awesome .

      Hollywood I didn't mean Disney should make alien and predator like Star Wars , I meant they should be given the same treatment and attention to detail Star Wars has received .

    Also you may believe remakes and rehashes never work , but 2017s It , was my favourite film of the year and I don't even like horror films really .. some of the scenes were shot for shot the same as Tim currys . Did it flop ? No it was one of the best films of the year .

    And yes some parts of the script I did like big daddy john , but a lot of it I didn't . That doesn't mean I hate something . Hate is a strong word.

    Disney is the number one movie making machine in the world, everything they touch is critically acclaimed and there is hardly a movie that doesn't make a billion, and rightly so, they know how to please their crowd.

    I'm looking forward to them taking over FOX, i really do.
    haha this literally made me lol. Did I correctly read this comment as sarcasm? :D :D :D
    No, i guess your sarcasm-detector is broken. I'm not surprised people don't share my opinion, and they don't have to, time will tell.

    Disney makes crowd-pleasers because they actually care.

    For me, i'm really optimistic about the FOX/Disney merge and i think that's exactly the kind of fresh air the Alien/Predator franchise needs. FOX managed to pretty much f**k up their franchises one by one, Die Hard/ ID4/ Alien/ Predator/ Fan4... why do you think they are selling? Because the movies were so good and so successful?

    Seems like sarcasm isn't your only demerit.
    The Marvel movies, in my opinion are the modern equivalent of the 80's slasher movies. A studio cranking out poorly written film's one after the other with very little style or substance to them. They simply keep these movies flying off of the production line because at the moment they are making lots and lots of money. That doesn't mean that they are good. I can honestly say I have not liked ANY of the marvel movies. Not one. But that's just my opinion. The force Awakens was a pretty poor imitation of A New Hope with a less interesting lead and a less interesting villain. Rogue one was, imo, very good however. The Last Jedi was absolutely dreadful. Seen it opening night with my old man. The general consensus from the audience etc that night, and the world over is that it was a mess. Again, just my opinion, but it was awfully awfully poor. It also completely bombed in a market where even Terminator Genisys made a ton of money. That is really saying something. This idea that all of disney's movies makes billions is a myth. Just look at prince of persia or john carter. They do generally make so called 'crowd pleasers'(although audience score on TLJ was extremely low) So if they decide to reinvigorate Alien, or Predator, expect more of the same, but with next to no genuine talent involved, no style, no substance, no fresh/exciting ideas, and lots and lots of money being spent for good or for bad.

    I believe that the star wars did not have to be rescued because the story was over. If the creators had included fantasy and made new films without binding to the old trilogy or would have done with it but with respect to the cult heroes ... And about the predator there is also little respect for his character and a huge logical hole in the narrative that does not fit in with past movies.
     In both cases, the creators trying to do something new and fresh forget what was done before them.

    Don't put words in my mouth , I never said I hate the predator , I said I'm disappointed with the script if it proves to be accurate. Seeing as the predators script was leaked early and proved to be 90% true , I'm inclined to believe this one is . But I have never said I hate it . How can I ? Iv not even watched it yet .

    But you did hate what you read, didn't you ? Or was there some stuff that you liked in the script ?

    If Disney acquires Fox they will likely still release R rated material under a different studio name just like they did with Kill Bill and Con Air. I haven't seen the last Star Wars film but despite what anyone thinks of the last 3, Disney knows how to get attention on their films, so that's a plus, right? I think Johnny is right in his implying that Disney is a smart business that has a good track record in catering to its properties' audiences.

    If Disney doesn't lose sight of which audience each film should entice, I don't see why they can't make a Predator film that pleases the crowds who want to see a violent, solid action film. They wouldn't be stupid enough to try to turn the Predator franchise into something like Star Wars.

    EDIT: That's not a jab at the quality of Star Wars - that's me saying it's a different "type" of franchise.

    How can you hate The Predator when the movie is not out yet?  :-[

    Ohh, and i see, it's the latest cool internet thing to hate the new Star Wars movies. Well, i'm not that cool then, i rather enjoy well made movies than blabbering other peoples opinions.
    you got it wrong johnny, alot of people hate the new star wars movie because it's pretty average. it's not about ( oh its so cool to hate stuff!!) people are just very disappointed with it.

    How is that mindblowing ? If it was up to George Lucas , the franchise would of been dead . Can you honestly say disneys films are worse than phantom menace and attack of the clones ? Which by your definition are true Star Wars as they were made by Lucas . I mean don't even get me started with jar jar Binks , Star Wars fans have never had it so good , money talks , so does care . Disney have a reputation that they know they have to protect .they have always been revolutionary in cinema . Seriously why is there so much hate on Disney ? They basically saved Star Wars from going down the toilet. The same cannot be said for 20th century fox , they are greedy , do not care about the quality they are putting out , and are ultimately franchise killers .

    I'm with johnny on this one too , I think Disney snatching the rights to both alien and predator can only be a good thing . As he has rightly said they very rarely put of films that don't do well commercially and critically. I love the new Star Wars, I love the MCU and I agree rogue one is one of the best , Presides fox has neglected both franchises for way too long long, just like the predator will ,  I'm honestly happy they are not in the chair anymore . My only worry is , will Disney actually make anything ? Or will they sell the rights on to Netflix ? I hope not , we need a Star Wars treatment for both franchises.. who knows they might even make avp work for once .
    Hates the predator and loves new star wars...mindblowing.

    Whether or not you and I like it. There is a massive audience willing to go see that very type of film. Time and time again. Anticipating said conveyer belt films. What’s more they actually enjoy them and sing their praises. Such is the world we live in.
