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: 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...

On 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.

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.

Yeah, I can get feeling that way.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah unfortunately these days, the truth and fact-checking isn't very popular. :(
