Following the first The Predator video in which they showed off their Emissary Predator designs, studioADI has uploaded a new behind-the-scenes video of The Predator! Like the Emissary Predators, the menagerie has been absent from pretty much all the behind-the-scenes material but thanks to the studioADI YouTube channel we now get a look at these cut creatures – which were dubbed the menagerie – that were a part of the original third act!
Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s early drafts of the script for THE PREDATOR called for a menagerie of alien creatures to break free from the crashed Predator spaceship. The idea was that a rogue group of Predators would extract DNA for their own use from a diverse group of specimens collected from across the galaxy. Our goal was to create designs that would not look like they came from a single source. To get a wide variety of concepts we brought in Brian Wynia, Ken Barthelmey, Luca Nemolato, Jordan Morris, Farzad Varahramyan, Adam Dougherty and Tim Martin.
As a side note, Shane and Fred always try to work a spider with a human head into every project they can. They’re like that. Our job was to try to make one look cool!
We recently had the chance to chat to ADI’s Alec Gillis about their work on The Predator for the AvP Galaxy Podcast where we asked him the various menagerie creatures. If you haven’t already, be sure to give the interview a listen!
