In talking with Playlist, writer director Robert Rodriguez chatted up all of his upcoming projects, while also making the realization that he originally wanted to produce a sequel to Predators, the quasi-reboot of the classic 1987 sci-fi horror Predator.
“I haven’t talked to them [20th Century Fox] in a while. I know they liked the idea of doing another one,” Rodriguez explained. “I should probably call and check in. I’ve just been busy doing these other things.”
For a guy who constantly pushed how passionate he was about the original, to completely “forget” about it makes me question is credibility. Nimrod Antal directed the R-rated reboot/sequel that referenced characters from the original, while following a new group of toughies to battle the race of alien Predator.
