Shane Black Predator 5 Rumours

Shane Black

In July 2018, Shane Black mentioned leaving room to do a sequel to his movie should the event arise.

I think it’s part of the task to always leave room, just like leaving room for dessert. But at the same time, unless you very firmly have in mind your pre-planned and pre-structured trilogy or sequel, it’s important to focus on the movie at hand and not get lost, like day one of a movie and you’re already planning the wrap party. It’s important that we get this one right. But of course we would leave room for continuing this, because as I mentioned, the Predator seems to have this uncanny longevity in the zeitgeist that people like new iterations of it, they like the hunting aspect of it, they break down every aspect of whatever costume he’s wearing this time and make toys of it. It’s strange, but it’s so longstanding and won’t go away.

Prior to The Predator being released, producer John Davis said had aspirations to keep the Predator series going with at least two more sequels.

The producer says that “The Predator” will set up two sequels that he hopes Black will return to direct. But Black doesn’t want to get ahead of himself.

“I would love to say we’ve been planning a trilogy, but I take one day at a time,” he cautions. “In motion-picture terms that’s one movie at a time.”

Unfortunately, due to the high $88m budget, The Predator really needed to make at least $175m at the box office to break even. It finished at $160m, just short of that amount so any future Predator sequels are currently in limbo.

Will Arnold Schwarzenegger Return to Predator? Predator 5 Rumours

Will Arnold Schwarzenegger Return to Predator?

Before Arnold Schwarzenegger became governor of California, he was the most popular choice to return to the Predator series to play Dutch. The next person in the spotlight was WWF wrestler The Rock who would have took over the Dutch role. In September 2003, The Rock denied that he has any involvement in a Predator 3 movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger almost made an appearance in 2004’s Alien vs. Predator. Paul W.S. Anderson said in an interview that Schwarzenegger offered to reprise his role as Dutch Schaeffer as a cameo, but only on the condition if he lost the election for Governor of California. Dutch was supposed to show up in a chopper at the end to rescue Lex.

In 2005, another wrestler, John Cena, was also rumoured to be involved in a remake of Predator. In the recent Predators movie, Rodriguez made it clear from the outset that he wanted Schwarzenegger to make an appearance but he was still busy. After Schwarzenegger left his governor position, he said he was considering doing a new Predator movie in March 2011. In an early draft for The Predator, Arnold’s character Dutch appeared in the closing moments of the film. He emerges from a chopper and asks Quinn, Casey and Rory to come with him. Schwarzenegger was very unhappy with the script and refused to take part, saying he’d only do it if “there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role.”

Predator 5 Storyline

Before The Predator was announced, the most popular idea was Rodriguez returning to do a direct sequel to Predators with Adrien Brody again. The ending was very open-ended but I’d imagine it would be hard to do a new story without repeating the first movie. Rodriguez stated in July 2010 that he had a few ideas for Predator 4. He said Predators sets up a new story, new location and a new world for a potential sequel. If Rodriguez isn’t involved, it could be a completely new story.

“[The studio] said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?’” says the filmmaker. “Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there.”Robert Rodriguez

If they continue with Shane Black’s The Predator, they could continue off with that story with Quinn McKenna, Rory and Casey Brackett and ‘The Predator Killer’ suit.

Predator During Blizzard Predator 5 Rumours

Predator During Blizzard?

There were all sorts of ideas for a new Predator sequel floating around over the years. Prior to Predators been made, there are about three scripts for Predator 3 circulating around the globe. The first, written by Sam Park, is called Predator 3: The Deadlier of the Species and features Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character, Dutch, in New York during a blizzard. A Predator comes to New York and tracks down Dutch to try and kill him.

The second script, written by Robert Rodriguez, is called Predators and is set on a 17th century ship where a Predator stalks the crewman who have to fight with inferior weaponry. Rodriguez did speak about his script during an interview at the beginning of 2004 and said it was rejected because the budget would have been too big – about $150m. The third and final script is called The Zoo which brings back both Dutch from Predator and Harrigan from Predator 2 and they are captured and brought back to the Predator homeworld because they were the only two people to have ever killed a Predator.

I wrote an interesting article about where a Predator sequel could take place and includes locations such as World War 2, a Galleon ship or the Predator homeworld.

  1. Really wish they made a new storyline. There was book series of a female that was brought up by Predators. Which could very well make a good movie idea, half movie of her training rest her escape or trying to return to earth.

  2. Pissed off Old Predator

    Get it away from these guys all they care about is targeting. Demographic that will pay them for. Sht made for syfy Friday night. Fuck mainstream

  3. Just a Fan YOU ARE RIGHT! Comon this is Predator, not a Back in Time story, we really want high tech weapons and action. Not swords fights as JUST A FAN would say and I AGREE! Man comon! This is Alien stuff, people wanna see spaceships and other planets than earth…. #justsaying

  4. I need more Predator movies!!!! I been a fan since the first one. I think you should make another Aliens movie or Aliens vs Predator. I’m just a big fan of all of themmmmm!!!!!

  5. “I think it would be far more interesting to experience a predator movie that is just as cool as the first movie without trying to be the first movie.
    Going to be honest here, predators was like a reboot, and the predator was essentially watching predator in reverse.
    I wish writers/directors would read the comics and listen to fans.
    The yautja deserve better.”

    That’s asking too much from them. As Gary Bussey’s agent Keyes might put it : “Their dealing with a concept way above their heads.”

  6. I think you guys did a really good job with this last movie
    The Predator and should follow the story line with the suit that we humans get at the end of the movie with the same actor using the suit. It would be awesome to see Arnold in the next one but you really don’t need him or Danny in it.

  7. I would like to see the Predator(s) survive next time–tired of seeing these highly-trained beings always losing. They must train for decades to be as skilled s they are. What about some plot that puts humans and Predators together working as reluctant allies to stop a far greater danger?
    Just check some of the many fan-driven storylines about Predators and you’ll see what people really feel for them
    –Perhaps a joint Hunt against the bad-bloods or dishonorable Killers from the Predator society?
    I agree with Shadow Girl–too many Predators getting killed. Perhaps find some neural planet like in “Predators” where humans and Predators who want to challenge each other could meet?

  8. I think it would be far more interesting to experience a predator movie that is just as cool as the first movie without trying to be the first movie.
    Going to be honest here, predators was like a reboot, and the predator was essentially watching predator in reverse.
    I wish writers/directors would read the comics and listen to fans.
    The yautja deserve better.
    I re watched the predator again and I do love the mythic they brought in. I wish the plot made sense (they had to rewrite and cut basically a very large portion of the original movie, there is essentially an unproduced alternate predator movie out there. The very beginning of the movie is very difficult for me to get over. But I think I understand why it doesn’t make sense. It’s essentially the opening for a different movie. That predator is not the same predator that is supposed to be helping us. It was the original bad guy who they turned into the good guy and cut the two soldier scientist predators and created a behemoth predator just for shits and giggles. Why would our buddy kill a rando soldier. Of corse he would break out and kill people but also it still was confusing as to why he wouldn’t be better communicating with the humans if he wanted fuck off help them.
    The super predator did a better job of communicating AND he killed a bunch of people.
    I feel bad for Shane and Fred. I feel like they didn’t get to tell us what they wanted to tell us. The movie is actually not bad except
    For the opening scene and the poor graphics for the super predator (probably didn’t have enough money at that point).
    I hope they get another chance to make a sequel and hopefully reuse old material lost to us.

  9. bry web is not a fan.

    Yo lets go back to Predators mechanics (the 3rd predator movie) witty remarks R-rated get that kid from pred 4 outta here. keep this an action movie. Cool you showed autism is acceptable but honestly is this the type of movie series that has to make that a point?

    Why are you guys talking about going back in time???? This is predator… we want to see the high tech alien stuff. I do not want to see guys attacking this thing with bayonets/old tanks. I mean come on if you’re going to show all that “high tech super secret” military lab stuff then give us some advanced weapons. If it came to us v them they would win easy so lets not do an all out earth v them war. At least not with whats been presented so far. We got elon musk making ludicrous innovations out here. Take this into space, the franchise is dead if we stay on earth that’s what made pred 3 Hot. keep the jungle/forest there’s ocean scenes we could explore. literally anywhere you can go in and out of sight. We can bring up the aliens again and go into their homeworld or extend their story.

    We got a suit, cool, literally you could kill off the whole cast and say that the military has kept the suit and you replace the cast with former military guys(like they do in every movie). I would avoid making another superman though. (ultimate hero that can’t be stopped by anything) in pred 4 you got pretty close to that in the beginning and middle of the movie with the upgraded pred. Made it pretty stale during all the shooting scenes once we find out there’s no reason for him to dodge. (whole point in advancing our tech so we remain somewhat a threat) Remember pred 3 where the preds avoided bullets not fuckin Tanked all of them. Don’t turn us into superman with that superman suit from the end of pred 4. Honestly I thought that suit was a terrible decision. Reason being is that it pairs people with the ironman movies. Also means that the preds should have armies or a royal guard with those suits. Like make it a one time deal meaing that it was the only copy and destroy the suit in battle or when they first contact the preds. The gift should of been a gun or device to obtain a ship. That way you can focus on team mechanics as each person can become as equally powerful when tossing around the weapon. Tossing around a suit is not convenient and forces the camera to focus on one persons actions instead of the group as a whole.

    Olivia Munn awesome so is Trevante Rhodes, Keegan Michael key and the rest. You don’t need to be tied down by one cast member.Couple action stars couple witty comedic people and you got yourself a movie.

    Jason Statham I wish he would play in one of these.

  10. We need that origins movie of who what why to answer the 20 questions as to why they hunt why do they always prove themslefs in 3s things like that and as to why would they let us have a weapon that kills them and why the aleins as a right of passage things like that that might get things going

  11. WOW 😮 That Nice predator 5 And Send Neil Blomkamp will never make Alien 5 Evermore But Good Is Only Sir Ridley Scott will do make Alien Awakening so Alien Covenant Sequel Will Not Cancelled Ever More And So Neil Blomkamp don’t Do make it alien 5 But Only Sir Ridley Scott Do ALIEN 5 ALSO KNOW AS IS THE ALIEN COVENANT 2 AND KNOW as ALIEN AWAKENING

  12. Strange, for 20 years we’ve had that wonder will there ever be an Alien 5, we’ve had other alien related movies with AVP and the prequels but it seems Alien 5 will never happen. Now it looks like we’ll have wait years and years of rumors for Predator 5.

  13. It would be cool to see a Predator film set against the backdrop of WWII-particularly events such as D-Day, The Battle of The Bulge, even Okinawa.
