IESB has learned that 20th Century Fox and Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Sin City) are giving Predator a facelift in a new film entitled Predators.
In a news conference today at Texas-based Troublemaker Studios where Rodriguez was on hand for the signing of a new state film incentive. Rodriguez talked to the audience of press members and revealed his upcoming film slate.
"I'm going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons."
If you recall, Rodriguez penned a Predator 3 script some time ago that was discarded because it was "too big."

Robert Rodriguez is Rebooting Predator
I think this is good news since we can finally have a sole film based on Predator instead of those stupid versus movies. I wouldn't say Rodriguez is the best director in the world, but the guy definitely knows action. I'm still waiting for Rodriguez to give us Sin City 2 and Red Sonja. I say focus on those two titles before releasing another Predator movie.
