Predator 5 Is Coming! Directed By 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg!

In what seems like pretty surprising news, despite the generally poor response to Shane Black’s The Predator, 20th Century Studios isn’t leaving the Predator franchise to fade into the ether just yet!

Deadline have just exclusively announced that Dan Trachtenberg, probably best known for directing 10 Cloverfield Lane in addition to episodes of Black Mirror and The Boys, will be directing a Predator 5 written by Patrick Aison. Aison’s writing credits don’t include any previous film work, but he has written for TV, most notably Amazon’s recent version of Jack Ryan.

20th Century Studios has engaged 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg to direct the fifth installment in the Predator series. The script is being written by Patrick Aison, whose producer/writer credits include the series Kingdom, Jack Ryan and Treadstone.

While Deadline wasn’t able to go into specifics of the plot of Predator 5, we do actually have some story details for you! Alien vs. Predator Galaxy has known about this upcoming Predator 5 for a little while now.  Now bear with us on this one because it is going to seem like a leap.

 Predator 5 Is Coming! Directed By 10 Cloverfield Lane's Dan Trachtenberg!

In December of 2019, Discussing Film exclusively announced that Trachtenberg was developing a film with 20th Century Studios and Disney called Skulls, also written by Patrick Aison and was to be producer by long time Predator series producer John Davis. Discussing Film also provided some small details about Skulls’ plot.

‘Skulls’ will follow a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior.

This small bit of information marries up with what Alien vs. Predator Galaxy was told regarding the upcoming Predator 5. According to our own sources Predator 5 will be set in the past (finally!) where it will focus around Native Americans before the territories were taken by the American settlers, featuring a First Nations cast. It seems quite likely that Skulls is actually Predator 5, perhaps a working title or codename.

The Predator series has explored Native American culture in the past, most notably within the comic and novelisation Predator: Big Game, the second of Dark Horse’s Predator series. This wouldn’t be the first time that a Predator film has looked to the expanded universe for inspiration, with Predator 2 featuring many similarities to Dark Horse’s very first Predator story, something we recently explored!

Thanks to Whos_Nicks for the heads up regarding both Deadline’s announcement, and making the connection to Skulls! Make sure you stick with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest Predator 5 news!

    Wow, wasn't expecting this news!

    Is there anything concrete or is it just "Native American female lead. Set in the past. Preds"?

    I know a lot of people have been calling for a period piece for some time, but I don't see how it works unless the Preds have no cloaking and/or future tech.

    What I will say is there could be scope for some really good set pieces and cinematic elements in a rocky/cavernous canyon.

    I am thinking the human female narrative and storyline will run parallel with a female predator. Both getting put in place by the higher ups and both craving a hunt or fight . Maybe not.

    Well if it's true that Disney is always pushing a feminist agenda, Then the predator will be male. The female hero will defeat the pinnacle of male masculinity and crush the patriarchy. :laugh:

    Fix the mandibles they can put tits on it if they like. I don't think we will see a female Predator, kinda smacks of a cigar smoking boss coming up with the next big idea for Predatorz.

    And then explaining that it's not breasts, but muscle in an attempt to keep everyone happy  :laugh:

    Worst of both worlds lol

    As long as they don't follow Rule 34, everything will be fine. Now that would be extremely cringy  :-X


    Giving predators boobs is already the laziest rule 63 imaginable.

    Male Predators don't have nipples, ergo, female Predators can't have breasts with them, and without them, they serve no purpose.

    Checkmate atheists.

    All Predators in movies are girls. The females of their race are the equivalent of Schwarzenegger, because this is what a true woman of their species looks like. The little ones with curves are the real boys.

    Big and tough = Female

    Smaller and sexy = Male
    That would be such a twist lol

    But seriously   :laugh: Predators may be humanoid and share some similarities with humans: head, arms, legs, bipedal posture, etc. Something like convergent evolution.

    https://i.ibb.co/tPXvnCt/Pics-Art-11-22-04-28-44.jpg

    However, that doesn't mean that they have mammalian anatomy. For example, a bat has wings but doesn't possess feathers, scales, or lays eggs like birds and reptiles.

    https://i.ibb.co/GshBPSP/Pics-Art-11-22-04-29-58.jpg

    Predators look reptilian (with a crustacean mouth :laugh:) and I don't think they have breasts at all (females).

    They can of course use the excuse of making them "relatable" to a less nerdy audience by introducing a female human-like Pred.

    And then explaining that it's not breasts, but muscle in an attempt to keep everyone happy  :laugh:

    Be reptilian crab things and have mammaries?

    Let me stop you right there.

    Umm...nah. I will continue. :-* My mind won't be changed and neither will yours. But anyway. How did we get into this again? Are we suspecting that because this film has a woman warrior protagonist, the antagonist Predator will be female?

    It started with me saying "on the off-chance" since that feels like about the only time they'd do it, if still unlikely, but it's a hot button issue and it ran away from us all I think.

    A modest feminine form, but easily recognizable as a Predator, a good balance.

    No.

    Who would they have mammaries at all? Look at that f**king mouth.

    Because aliens. Be reptilian crab things and have mammaries? Sure. I'd get use to it. HG female Predators had to be approved by studio execs I'm sure, so I'm thinking this is the form they will retain.

    Thanks. I think the larger hips can work well, still too much boob for my taste in preds, which is generally, it should be difficult or impossible for a layperson to identify the sex of a pred ie; they all resemble a large human male to some extent.

    Oh something like the female Berserker class then?

    It design muddled the guessing game of what's its gender a little more than the Hunter class design. Plus it helps sell the fact that the females are larger and stronger as it was said in many media.

    Sorry for the late reply Mr.Turok.

    I'mma be real with you, some of those designs have some great details, but even the modest suggestion of breasts going on is too much for me. You'll never convince me something with a face like that is designed for suckling.

    We don't see what's under PHG female Predators's chest armor. Might be just bone structure or the shape of the armor, no boobs.

    Their shoulder-waist-hips ratio in comparison to the males was great, Predator males are based of human males so its fitting that the females would have more feminine human-like proportions. One of the best things PHG has settled in regards to the creatures.

    At least the Hish's sex benders are gone for good.

    The Comanche Indian was in New Mexico and two other states from what I have read. New Mexico is beautiful on film. Should look up Comanche Warrioir . We should see some good horsemanship  or womanship in this.

    I'm shocked they're moving forward so quickly with another movie, but I really like the sound of this so far. Not getting my hopes up but I've always wanted a simpler, stripped down predator film set in the past. There's a lot of potential, like a ton, of done well. Makes.le think of the Jungle Tales comic where the young man is off on his rite of passage, and returns to find his village butchered.

    Like others have said the handling and design of the predator is really key, although I personally never want to see jungle hunter 2.0. I've enjoyed every design from P1, P2, and Predators 2010 as well.

    If they do this film and it's brutal, simple, and treats the predator details well, I'm so on board.

    Would you post a pic? I'm on a potato phone and don't really keep up with vidya games.

    The concept art that The Shuriken posted is a good idea of what the female design is in Hunting Grounds. But here is a more rendered one and the finalized ingame:

    There is also three types: Scout, Hunter, Berserker , goes from weakest to strongest in terms of shape and size. Scouts are slim lined for speed, Hunter is blend of strength and speed, Berserker is husky and thicc as hell. The one Shuriken and I posted is the Hunter class.
