Somebody needs to put a stop to this reboot business. First there was Point Break, and now Predator? What is Hollywood trying to do to those of us who love the ridiculous dialogue and action of the late 1980s/early 1990s? Where does this end?
Shane Black is reportedly writing a treatment for and directing a reboot of Predator, which will presumably not star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Black did solid work on Iron Man 3, but there’s no way he’s going to be able to top gems like this:
It doesn’t seem likely that Carl Weathers, Jesse “The Body” Ventura, or any of the other legends from the first film will be back either, which does make sense given that the Predator—spoiler alert!—killed them all. But still, they need to find a way to integrate this into the new movie:
No “Get to da choppa” + no handshake = terrible movie. Let’s hope Mr. Black knows this too.
