Arnold offered new Predator movie, working on comic book character

03.07.2011

Now that Arnold's done governating, he's getting projects thrown at him left and right. We've heard another Terminator is his if he wants it, but what other series are studios pitching his way?

"Well, first of all it's more 15 films, obvious ones from The Terminator to remakes of Predator and The Running Man and all of those things. Then also a lot of original stuff too. But I am also packaging a Comic Book character right now. I'm going to announce that sometime by the end of March or the beginning of April."

Really, THE RUNNING MAN? I for sure would have imagined that THE 6TH DAY 2 would be a top priority.

As for another PREDATOR, it's not exactly on the same path ALIEN is, with original director Ridley Scott taking over to make things (hopefully) awesome again. I did appreciate PREDATORS, but this series has had about four movies too many already.

Not sure what to make of this comic book character, as I'm assuming that means he's inventing one of his own, rather than taking on an existing role. Fingers crossed that he's bringing Turbo Man back.

Extra Tidbit: He never should have left.

The Avatar idea actually isn't a bad one. Stephen Lang was the only character I could identify with, as I too had an uncontrollable urge to murder everything blue and obnoxious (really, just every other character) by the 30min mark, and seeing Arnold in a similar capacity would pretty much be a dream come true. Plus, I'm not sure why, but I'm almost a hundred percent certain Arnold hates cats, and Sam Worthington, so his on-screen hatred would be genuine.

For the love of Austria, make it

Because Richard Dawson is the shit. 'What's with the pinkie finger' you ask? The world will never know.

Avatar 2. Arnold's best work was always with Cameron, so why not. It would be like Predator, but with Arnold killing Na'vi instead.

Come with me if you want to live.

I like to see him work with Christopher Nolen or Ridley Scott. He could be the villain in Iron Man 3(Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man). If At the Mountains of Madness takes off could there be a role for him there. No remakes, would be down for a Terminator 5 with him and Bale would be cool with Alfonso Cuaron directing no shitty McG. If he did comedy it would have to be with Will Ferrel and Adam Mckay. One more the next 2 Avatars.

Good to have him back. I guess the comic book project could be "Sgt. Rock", heīs been attached to it since quite a while and he wouldnīt be too old for that role. But a larger role in "Expendables 2°, aside Bruce Willis and Stallone, would be a good first step for him. BTW, 4 Predator-Movies too many? "Predator 2" was great and "Predators" was a flawed but fun throwback to the 80īs action flics!

I'd like to see Arnold on the big screen again. I don't know that I can imagine him in some of those action roles he wants to do, but I've always enjoyed seeing Arnold in films, so it'd be nice to see it again.

Btw, did anyone else read that quote from Arnold in his accent? I don't think I can read any quote from Arnold without reading it with an Arnold impression in my head.

Good to see Arnold Be Back

I think the main problem with all the predator movies, the sequels and spin offs after the Danny Glover one, is that they always seem to attempt to turn it into a buddy-buddy movie with the protagonist teaming up with a predator to kill some larger foe.

Horse hockey.

Predators would not team up with a human, any more than a human would team up with a tasty deer.

The attempts to tone down the violence and gore, and Disney-ize the character have failed miserably.

there also seems to be a misconception that some kind of ongoing storyline has to be maintained. The first two were great, separate stories about the same alien species.

There's no need to have any connection to the events with Arnold in South America.

Have another stand alone film, and enlist Jason Statham as the hero this time.

I guess I'm also in the minority that LOVED Predators (just like I was with GI Joe, apparently) and thought that it was one of the more worthy sequel/relaunches in quite some time. I hope that instead of a remake of P1 that they can continue the Adrien Brody film and bring Arnie back into the story somehow. I'd love to see the movie start and end on Earth. Maybe Dutch and his team are hired by the government to rescue Brody from the now-discovered Predator homeworld because Royce knows some

Maybe Dutch and his team are hired by the government to rescue Brody from the now-discovered Predator homeworld because Royce knows some government secret that is needed to save the world or something. Maybe a Predator stows away on their ship and the second half of the movie is Arnie and Adrien fighting in the concrete jungle, a'la Predator 2. It would also be sweet if the Predators weren't as alien as we thought and maybe their homeworld was one of Saturn's moons or something. I just DON'T want a remake and would rather see something original WITHIN the context of the existing story.

My Plan For Arnie

He should honestly come back with a ridiculous comedy along the lines of Jingle All the Way or a Farrelly Brother's flick or a Bad Santa type vehicle. Something low key, that gives him a chance to loosen up as an actor and not have just resort to blowing shit up, which didn't work too well for him towards the end of his last run in film. Once he proves he still has some talent and charisma, he should give us something else we want. Specifically:

Arnie should then combine forces with The Rock

Arnie should then combine forces with The Rock in a straight-ahead action film with no nods or winks and truly larger than life action- like something that involves time travel, explosions in space, an underwater city- you know, some Star Wars type shit. Yeah, that's wassup.

He's back

C'mon Arnie get to da choppa!!
Do it now!
I'd love to see Arnie reprise the Dutch role. I think McG ruined the Terminator franchise and T3 wasn't all that hot. I know predator has been done to death lately but I think Arnie can bring this franchise the proper hero it has been needing. No offense Adrien Brody.

The Rock + Arnie

I think if they did a Predators sequel, throw in The Rock somewhere and basically have him be what Arnie was in the original. No better way to hand over the torch in my opinion...either way get the Rock and Arnold together for some R rated madness!

YES

I don't care what he does as long as he gives us about five more movies. I would like to see another Predator movie where he goes with a unit to the Predator planet and gets Brody out of there, they could even tie it in with the AVP movie (not make it an AVP, just tie it in). There is a lot of good stuff that could come of the Alien and Predator franchises, Fox just has to committ to good director with a solid cast and stop pumping out the crap they did. Predators and Prometheus are steps in

Couldn't agree more about another Predataor movie. They could easily make it about the military getting him to come out of retirement or something and being sent off to their planet to rescue Adrian Brody. Not only would it make sense, since they mention the first film in Predators, but you would also have the feel of the original, where Arnie is the one the military has to rely on the save everybodys ass.

Right, I love the Alien franchise as well as the Predator, but the AVP's suck. At the end of AVP:R they talk about going after the Predators. There is a great story there BUT money has to be put into the writers, directors and cast. They could take the chick from 24 who was in AVP:R into a military base where they are preparing and there is Dutch who is going to lead the team.

They should just make a sequel to Predators and have him be a part of it, no need to remake. And I think Running man could actually be a cool remake, although I don't know if I could see Richard Karn as the villain haha

If Arnold wants to really get back in the ring, he needs to put Expendables 2 at the top of the list and just shoot stuff up and deliver one-liners like he did in his glory days. Just don't nuke the fridge like some other aging action star did.

The comic book character could be 'Doc Savage', he was attached to that before he ran for Governor, and I read somewhere that Shane Black had resurrected the project.

First off, hooray for more Arnold!

Now, did I read the words "remakes of Predator"? Really? Of all things NOT needing a remake, this is one of them. The main reason being that there is nothing wrong with the original. Literally. It has zero problems with age, effects, etc. That movie sits just as well if they had made it 4 months ago. DO NOT WANT! I quite liked Predators. I'm not sure what the hate towards it is. The only thing I didn't like was Laurence Fishburne's character, but

Look...

Predators is an underrated movie as far as I am concerned. Ya it is definitely not on par with the epic that is the original but wtf were you expecting?

Anyways I am always happy to read anything about Arnie getting back into the business whether it be sequels or cameos. Definitely looking forward to this comic book character as well.
