QuoteIn 1987, a hyper-advanced alien species known as the "Yautja" descended upon an elite military squad in Guatemala. Thanks to its memorable performances, quotable dialogue and inventive action set pieces, "Predator" became an American action movie staple. The film has spawned four sequels, including the new Hulu film "Prey," and two spinoffs. Yet, the mega franchise all started with a piece of paper underneath a door.

"The Thomas brothers snuck the script onto the Fox lot and under somebody's door," says John Davis, who has produced all seven "Predator" movies. "We got there on Monday, and there was this script. I was an executive at the time, and I had been working with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was a really good friend of mine. We were always both trying to figure out how we could work together. And so I'm the executive on this movie at Fox, and what happened is I became a producer. I auditioned to become a producer. And Arnold says, 'Well, you're becoming a producer now. You need to actually produce this movie and come to the jungle with me. Let's go make this.'
