Title: Rodriguez on Predator 3
Post by: Darkness on Jan 29, 2004, 02:59:41 PM

In a short interview with Moviehole.net, director Robert Rodriguez mentioned the script he was writing for a future Predator 3 movie. Here’s his responses:

MH: And what did ever happen to that "Predator 3" script?
Rodriguez: Oh, “Predators”, yes we’re the “Predator 3″, it’s call “Predators”. It was back when I was doing “Desperado”. I wrote “Desperado”, it was going to get made like end of September, and then “Last Action Hero” bombed, so they said we’re not making any movies for a year, like next year. So I was like what am I going to do until then? So I took a writing assignment, and one of the writing assignments that was out was “Predator” sequel.

So I said, yes I’ll write a version of that. And it was just — it was just crazy, it was huge, it was a big, big, big budget. Because I didn’t have to direct it, I just had to write it. So I didn’t really think about the budget, I was just like wrote this, wrote that. And it was really a cool script, it’s floating around somewhere. But it’s huge, and will never be made, the studio edited it and said there’s no way we can make this, this would cost — even at that time — 150 million, and no women would ever go see this movie.

Moviehole: So even with "Aliens versus Predator”, and you don’t think there’s any hope of the script getting made, it’s just too big?
Rodriguez: "It’s too big, and they’ve now combined alien versus “Predators”. So they’re putting two franchises together, which is probably a smarter way to go since both of those franchises are pretty much dying down. It’s the only way to really revitalize it at all. But yes, the — I don’t think that’d ever make it, it was just too expensive."

The rock is rubish you should get Arnald Swarcheniger to do it

Oh yer i would love it if you made the film it sounds very good and i just love the Predator movies   ;D 

You should put some aliens in it because it would be a better film and at the end of Pred 2 there was a Alien head.

Everyone hates the Rock if you put him in the movie it would ruin it for many people i don't even know why you even thought of the idea

That idea of rodriguez sounds kind of cool. Because in the end of the second movie he gave Glover a weapon of the 17th century.   The other two scripts arent original at all

Don't even get me started about the :arnold doesn' have to play dutch" (see ALIEN5 chat) thing, and the rock does suck, by the way, can somebody post a link to the PREDATOR 2 script, I haven't seen thhe movie and SCRIPTPIMP didn't have it, but hey, scripts are how I got addicted to the alien series. I really NEED to see the PREDATOR 2 script, and                                         IIIIIIIIII also, Arnie can play a hero........ Sorry but that is the only way I can do exclamation marks,  I made it   myuself, and it is total crap, but it is the best I got.   8)

I would go with the Robert Rodriguez idea it sounds cool and im sure it will rock since rodriguez has made some tight movies. i wouldnt go with wwe stars with the cast of predator 3 it will suck ass if they do
