Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Yesterday at 07:50:57 AMIf it is Greyback...it'd be a nice change of pace.

Are there any rumors hinting at this Predator being Greyback? Or is just speculation based on the time period?

I personally don't think any director or writer is aware of the lore to make that connection. But I'm a pessimist, so.

The person who took the "Skulls" set pics said one of the crew members revealed the film involves the Flintlock.

That's a pretty big revelation if true. Well now we gotta hope ADI can get a younger Greyback to look good. Which could be...problematic...

Until we know the dividing line of FX  responsibilities, I guess it's also remotely possible ADI is doing the bear and Comanche work and Steve Wang's Onyx Forge is handling the Pred duties. It will be interesting how it all shakes out.

QuoteOn one hand I think a part of me prefers this Predator to be all new. Because you can do a lot with the design. Having it just be a younger Greyback isn't as exciting only because we already know what he looks like.

He could have different armor, and have less features that make him look older. But overall we know what to expect.

Yeah, I can get feeling that way.

Quote from: skhellter on Yesterday at 10:56:07 AMI've noticed that the "Prey 2022 is ripping off this old fan film" meme is being shared around a lot recently.
(And when the film comes out, it'll get shared even more). 

It'll be useful to make an article to point out that "Predators hunting native Americans" is an old idea in the franchise and that the fan film didn't come up with it from thin air.

I believe it's already been pointed out by Mr H and others that Prey had been in development years before that fan film.

Quote from: PAS Spinelli on Yesterday at 12:44:08 AMSo... anyone expecting the Pred to survive in the end?

Nope. Having the Predator survive for the first time against the first live-action female lead in the franchise wouldn't send a great message.

If Greyback's in the film he'll be hunting people off to the side with the rest of his group and only show up briefly, a la the Lost Tribe at the end of P2. So he might well be there, and we might get our flintlock nod (perhaps we might get a scene of multiple Predators hunting a group of people, then the main one singles out Naru for the remainder of the film), but there's no way he's going to be the main antagonist.

I think there was a rumour that the FX team bought several replicas of the pistol from the end of P2

A quick google does show a similar premise. Can't say I give a shit though tbh.

It's first brought up in the novelization of the original, no?

Which is something I'd still be interested to see on screen - killed by their leaders specifically.

Would be interesting to see.

The Predator surviving doesn't even need to mean the protagonist dies or loses. If Harrigan hadn't chased City Hunter he could've got in the ship and gone home (I say "could" because he's killed by his peers in earlier script drafts).

They never do, so I don't see why this would be different.
