Following some conservative comments made by Shane Black regarding potential sequels yesterday, long-time Predator series producer John Davis has revealed in a new interview with Variety that he’s got ambitions to keep the Predator series going for more films following The Predator’s release!
The producer says that “The Predator” will set up two sequels that he hopes Black will return to direct. But Black doesn’t want to get ahead of himself.
“I would love to say we’ve been planning a trilogy, but I take one day at a time,” he cautions. “In motion-picture terms that’s one movie at a time.”
Shane Black also talks about working on the film and the delicate nature of balancing the humour with the seriousness of the situation, saying that he took a “Butch-and-Sundance approach” to the balance. Davis also went on to compliment Shane’s work on the film for “finding a fresh take, and for grounding the scares by creating more believable characters.”
“This is an auteur-driven reimagining,” says Davis. “Shane Black has a voice and a signature, and it kind of re-enlivens the franchise.”
