This film has been a disaster, even toward the bitter end. I feel bad about Shane and his crew. I think Shane had this idea he thought was really cool and would have revolutionized the Franchise. However, in reality, it was extremely flawed and, most importantly, immature. I can understand this error. When I was in high school I wrote an Alien script. I thought it was fantastic and innovative. Five years later I look back and see it as a highly flawed work. I don’t know all the details of how Shane was given the rights to write and make a predator film but it seems that the script was made in around a month time. I think Fox gave him a time limit to submit an idea and Shane, being in love with predator, didn’t want to take the chance that he would not be the chosen director. Thus he got something finished in a month or two and submitted it to Fox. From my own personal experience and what I have seen in the industry, writing a good script takes a lot of time and a lot of research. A good example of this is Blade Runner 2049. The film took a couple of years to write and make yet it was incredible and won oscars.
