Quote from: Voodoo Magic on May 20, 2022, 09:53:00 PMI believe it's already been pointed out by Mr H and others that Prey had been in development years before that fan film.

That topic will show up again.. and again..
Saw some """"youtube reactors"""" (weird creatures, those) talk about Prey ripping off this short. So the "lie" is spreading.

Quote from: The Shuriken on May 22, 2022, 12:36:21 AMOh my god if Steve Wang is working on the Predator design...that would be incredible...

Well, we'd need Wang to handle the execution too. Wang has done strictly head sculpting before where ADI's realization of that sculpt was less than spectacular. But Steve's Studio does full costume work, soup to nuts, so that would be my ultimate wish fulfilled. :)

You don't summon Grayback and let ADI screw its face.Or you will face consequences.   

Yeah I can already imagine the complete meltdown the fandom would have if they ruined Greyback.

Yeah, there were clues last year that both ADI and Steve Wang's Onyx Forge Studio were on the job, and hiring around the same time. And Jen Roomes, an up & coming Special FX, Make-Up, Costume Designer, bounced between both teams.

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on May 20, 2022, 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.

ok but who's doing the sashquach??

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 May 20, 2022, 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 May 20, 2022, 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
