Robert Rodriguez Rebooting Predator Franchise?
Robert Rodriguez and 20th Century Fox are giving Predator a face lift in a new film entitled Predators. The announcement came via a news conference today at the Texas-based Troublemaker Studios where Rodriguez was on hand for the signing of a new state film incentive.
"I'm going to be able to shoot my upcoming 'Machete' here, a sci-fi action film called 'Nerverackers,' a re-boot of the 'Predator' series called 'Predators,' and a couple of smaller movies called 'Sin City 2' and 'The Jetsons,'" he told the press.
Rodriguez had previously penned a Predator 3 script some time ago that was discarded because it was "too big."
Sooooooo... a new Predator movie and Jetsons to boot? Can old Roddy live up to the task of breathing some fresh air into a flailing franchise and then bringing the much loved futuristic Hanna Barbera cartoon to the live action big screen? We shall have to wait and see!
As long as Rodriguez and Fox don't change the original Predator design in ANY way I'll be happy... "If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it" as the saying goes. The films? Yes. The Predator design? NO!
