1. The Predator won’t be a reboot
While reboots for 1980s/1990s franchises seem to be all the rage right now, The Predator will be taking a different tact. Not bound to any sort of canonical story, director Shane Black offers a solid reasoning behind opting out of the reboot approach.
“As far as Fred and I are concerned, anyway, why start over when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine,” Black tells Collider. It makes a whole lot of sense to simply insert The Predator into the existing timeline, making the potential role for Arnold Schwarzenegger way more interesting given his history with the franchise.
