Shane Black's rebootquel The Predator will not take the franchise back to revisit its glory years in the '80s. Rather, the film will be set in the current day, with Black dodging questions about whether that means Arnold Schwarzenegger could play his original character, just thirty or so years older, in the next installment of the franchise.
When Collider asked whether the new film would using real time "since the first film," Black dodged the question somewhat, saying only that the movie would be set in the present day.
Black, who directed Iron Man 3 and is set to direct Doc Savage, will take on The Predator next, pushing Savage back a bit in the production queue. The writer/director actually appeared as Hawkins in the first film.
The Predator is due out March 2, 2018.0comments
