Robert Rodriguez is Rebooting Predator

In a recent news conference at Troublemaker Studios, several Texas state politicians were in attendance to sign HB 873, the long-awaited reform of the Texas film incentive program. All well and good, but IESB had this cool piece of news.

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."
There is lots of news in that one statement. Machete is a full film from the trailer that featured in Grind House, Sin City 2 will be cool and I just don't know about The Jetsons.

The big news to me is the reboot of Predator. I love the first two films and the whole concept of the Predator is just great. I even liked the Mr Wolf style Predator in the recent AvP2 so to see more of the dreadlocked hunter will be fantastic.

However, I am a little concerned about Rodriguez directing it. Don't get me wrong I loved Sin City, Desperado etc, but he just seems to have become obsessed with the whole green screen thing. Hopefully, he'll lay off that a little for the new Predator as he can do some brilliant action scenes.

What are your views on Rodriguez directing the new Predator film? Where should it be set? What do you want to see in it?

More on the Predator home world. Possible scenario is that it's set in the future and a human (or group would be better - more deaths!) crash-lands on the Predator home planet....One of those dreadlocked suckers is bad enough, but a planet of them?!?!!

I really like that idea. Turns the original concept around. Plus I'd love to see more of the Predator Homeworld. Well done Alan S

would love the idea of the humans getting back at the predator(s). like now we get in our space ships since they killed so many of us and we fuck them up!

machete will be wicked btw.

Why Mr. Rodriguez? Why?! I'm not against remakes but this is totally unnecessary and sad.

I don't think it will be a remake, the original is just great, and I'm sure Rodriguez know that, so he will do what we want to se..... more of this fellas.......
