It feels as if there’s no stopping The Predator from going into production at this point, and I’m expecting the cast to begin trickling in over the summer.
Now, according to the Directors Guild of Canada, Shane Black’s The Predator will be filming in Vancouver from September 26th – December 20th.
This sets it way ahead of its planned February 9, 2018 theatrical release, which means there’s time to really get ti right.
Back in April we reported that Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is telling people that he’s probably going to star in the Predator followup, being penned by Fred Dekker.
“I’ll be doing some new feature films and stuff like that too. I’ll do Predator,” Jackson told Sirius XM’s Shade 45. He confirmed this in a second interview, this time with 99 Jamz UnCensored: “I’m working on some new projects. You heard of the movie Predator? I might be a part of that project this summer.” Jackson already has a relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger (rumored to appear) as he co-starred in Escape Plan with Sylvester Stallone.
Producer John Davis recently exclaimed that the next Predator would reinvent the franchise, while we’ve been told by insiders that it’s a direct sequel to John McTiernan’s 1987 Predator. Most recently, Black stated that The Predator will be an expensive “spectacle”!
Black’s been extremely open about the film during his tour supporting The Nice Guys. A lot of the latest can be scoured by clicking here.
