Yes sir. Stan Winston's Predator crew was a small team, with only one character actor (Kevin Peter Hall) and one person of Kevin Peter Hall's stature. For a full film I would believe they would have to consider alternates, but their Predator work was considered "reshoots" with only 2-3 weeks originally designated I recall. Stan celebrated Kevin too, that he never had to lose a shot in those "Predator" reshoots because Kevin couldn't handle it anymore. Not one shot lost. KPH is just a legend. :)

But the red FX suits, yeah, it's also my understanding as well that some stunt guys wore some red suits, but I've never found the precise people named in text or credits.

Craig Baxley mentioned a couple of names in his biography , Henry Kingi and Tony Brubaker, who did stunt scenes in the pred suit.
I think Brian Simpson also was in the suit at some point, possibly in certain slaughterhouse sequences, but I couldn't get a reply from him yet.

I have a feeling that Wyatt Weed said it was the stunt co-ordinator (I know he worked on P2, but he knew the guy from P1). Brian Johnson?

So according to the second-hand info Wyatt provided, Brian Simpson, seen below with Kevin Peter Hall's hand on his head....



...wore the red camouflage suit in the trees, and was "pretty sure" Brian was the Predator in these wide shots:




I'll see if I can get more detailed info directly from the source.

Let me know if you make contact. I wanted to get him on the podcast, but couldn't see any obvious contact when I looked last.

Camouflaged Predator moves a lot different than non-camouflaged. In the minigun scene, while he's running away, he even does a little skip.

Pure speculation, but what if they use Gort's mask being that it's technically the original Predator mask design?

I don't think I'd mind if it meant a good looking Predator.

The last time we got an original one was Fugitive, and it was "meh" at best. Plus if you aren't an obsessive fan, Gort is a new design.

As much as the film disappoints, I still like Fugitive's design. I was happy with that.

That said, I wouldn't turn my nose up at Gort either. But I do always find it fun when we get a new take. I'm expecting some sort of warpaint for this one for some reason.
