Shane Black to Write and Direct Predator Reboot

Silas Lesnick

June 24th 2014, 1:16 pm

The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Iron Man 3 and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's Shane Black will write and direct a Predator reboot for 20th Century Fox!

According to the trade, Black is directing and writing the treatment for the film, which will then be scripted in full by Fred Dekker (with whom Black worked on Monster Squad).

Black has had a long history with the Predator franchise, having cameoed in the 1987 original. Directed by John McTiernan, Predator starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien entity that prizes the thrill of the hunt above all else. It was followed by a direct sequel, Predator 2, in 1990 before crossing over with Fox's Alien franchise for two additional sequels, Alien vs. Predator and AvP: Requiem. In 2010, Nimrod Antal helmed a reboot with a new feature, Predators.

There's no word on the extent to which the new film will tie into the existing franchise, nor is there any confirmation as to when this reboot might fit into Black's schedule. He's planning to shoot The Nice Guys from his own original screenplay as early as this fall and remains attached to Columbia Pictures' Doc Savage. Check back for further details as they become available.

John Davis is attached to produce with Matt Reilly overseeing for Fox and Ira Napoliello overseeing for Davis Entertainment.

I guess it was inevitable, but with Shane Black and Dekker writing and Black directing I am so fucking there.

Not understanding the hate!!

Black and Dekker sign me the fuck up!

Black seems like the guy who will respect the franchise and keep it straight forward HELLO he was in the original for Heavens sake so the dude will do it justice.

Me either. I'm assuming people are hearing the word "reboot" and automatically dissing it despite the talent involved.

I can't help but be excited. I love those guys' work. I mean Shane Black was only hired as an actor in the original film so he could be on set and re-write the script at any moments notice. But he refused to because the script was fine the way it was.

That just shows he respects the material.
