Its funny; if I were to pick the names of any currently working directors who would be a good fit for a Predator movie, the two that come to mind would be Robert Rodriguez and Shane Black. Predators
was ok, but overall really didn't leave any impression on me (I thought the first half was pretty solid, but found that it really lost steam in the second half–also, I know Rodriguez didn't personally direct the film but we was pulling a lot of the strings) and I flat out hated The Predator
It'll never happen but... a Paul Verhoeven/Ed Neumeier Predator movie playing up the over the top voiolence and leaning into the satirical elements of Robocop
and Starship Troopers
would very much be my jam.
