The new Predator film is going to be a sequel not a reboot, fans cans rest assured!
We reported yesterday the news that Predator was going to make a comeback under the direction of Shane Black. At the time the information circulating was that the new Preadtor film was going to mark a reboot for the famous sci-fi action horror series.
Speaking to Collider Black has clarified that this is infact not the case and that the new Preadtor film will come as a sequel instead. Black said "why start over, when you've all this rich mythology yet to mine?". He went on to say while he's generally not a fan of reboots, he can "really get behind inventive sequels".
Black who himself appeared in the original Predator film has more recently worked on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3. The new Predator sequel comes some four years after the last attempt produced by Robert Rodriguez. While the Predators 2010 sequel is far from the best in the ongoing alien hunters franchise we’re rather more pleased to see another sequel coming rather than the reboot.
