Hilarious Story About Jean-Claude Van Damme In ‘Predator’!!

Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 8.10.32 AM

Years and years ago we stumbled across a photo of the great Jean-Claude Van Damme on the set of Predator, which was hiding in the jungles of Fox Home Entertainment’s first Special Edition DVD release.

It’s no secret to hardcore fans that JCVD was the original Predator in John McTiernan’s 1987 horror classic. He allegedly left during filming to go work on Bloodsport.

While there aren’t tons of stories, and only one or two pictures to my account, Stan Winston School just posted this whopper of a video with Makeup FX innovator, Steve Johnson (Ghostbusters, Species, Blade 2) who shares the inside story on what went wrong with the original Predator suit, worn by a aspiring action star Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Not only do they share some previously unseen variants of the costume, but you’ll see JCVD running around in a red suit that he thought was the actual creature costume. This shit is HILARIOUS.

    i always had this idea of a predator film. what if they took a human kid back to their planet to raise and train. also teach the child of their ways. the kid could be like a orphan. for some reason i always wanted to see that type of movie made or what if they tried to splice a predator dna with a human.like the government had the remains of a dead predator body

      Not bad. I honestly thought that Predators was going to be just that. But they take all the best killers/predators from earth, and the last man standing would be taken back to be their crowning achievement in evolving the human race.

      I hated the ending to Predators, they opened up with so much potential and made it this “we got to get out of here” setup. When they could have setup a dozen sequels.

      I would have liked to see Brody, or the last standing man to be taken to the teenager planet where they train on lesser beings. It could have been like Star Trek, where they take the winner to a planet that is filled with like aborigines type people, and is told to take out a how village of warriors.

        right i mean why couldn’t they do that in a predator film . i mean in aliens vs predator they awarded the chick at the end with a gift for killing all the aliens and their queen while helping the fallen predator and in predator 2 they gave danny glover a gift for defeating one of their own so why not make a film of what i described. what if they took a human kid back to their planet to train to fight and hunt like them to see if humans can really adapt pretty much like a experiment. have some female predators in the film as well. Rhonda rousey would make a great female predator. the female predator could be one that watches over the kid as he grow or a friend that trains with him. i would love to see their planet

    The standards set by Predator, I can’t believe the original design. I know things need changing, and some elbow grease, but I am shocked that they went from those papers, to what I know as Predator.
