C'mon Hollywood: Give us another Predator!

Feb. 26, 2013by:

One of the coolest modern movie monsters is undoubtedly the PREDATOR. Created by screenwriters Jim and John Thomas and designed by FX guru Stan Winston, the first iteration of the famed alien creature in 1987ís PREDATOR, directed by John McTeirnan, became an instant classic, forever embedding the creature in pop culture everywhere. Since that time, the franchise has seen two sequels of its own and two sequels shared with the ALIEN franchise, based on the H.R. Giger designed xenomorphs, made most famous by Ridley Scott and James Cameron, respectively. The last time we saw the dreadlock-wearing beasts was in 2010ís PREDATORS, which served as both an homage to the first film and a return to form after the embarrassing schlock that is the AVP films.

Although not a huge smash, PREDATORS did decent domestic box office, ultimately bringing in $127 million worldwide (from a $40 million budget). Thatís not bad at all and considering the popularity of the brand, Iím genuinely curious why itís been all quiet on the PREDATOR front since. The film was a damn fine entry in the franchise and put it back on track to make even better follow-ups, yet weíve heard almost nothing from Fox. Robert Rodriguez, who produced PREDATORS, teased sequel details a while back, but has been wrapped up in his MACHETE and SIN CITY sequels, leaving our mandible-wielding aliens blowing in the breeze.

The movie monster genre, as a whole, has been in a sad state for a long time. Mostly, we get SyFy original movies of giant spiders and hybrid creatures with cheesy effects, leaving anything refined or cool gathering dust. And, itís a damn shame. Now, we all know what the bottom line is (money), so weíll leave that as a foregone conclusion. We know the studio wants guaranteed cash for anything they make. But, thatís their problem. For everyone else, we just want to see another movie featuring a blade-wielding, laser-blasting, skull-collecting, bad ass PREDATOR.

Of course, not everyone loved PREDATORS and thatís okay, but I think most can agree that it was a step in the right direction for the franchise, which had become kind of a joke after the atrocities of AVP and AVP: REQUIEM, which made the creatures more like cartoons than something you would actually fear. PREDATORS, at the very least, brought back some of that fear and made these creatures formidable again.

So, how do we continue the PREDATOR franchise? Thatís the beautiful thing. You could go anywhere with it. We finally got off Earth, so the universe is the limit. New characters have been established (Adrien Brodyís Royce and Alice Bragaís Isabelle) who can be used or tossed, depending on the direction of the film. Youíve also got a former Governor back to acting, who would best be served in returning to his established franchises, including the role which spawned quotes that are more oft-repeated than those of former Presidents. Thatís right: bring back Schwarzeneggerís Dutch.

Weíve speculated on that in the past, but now it certainly could be a reality, as the Governator is no longer bound by his political duty. Certainly, itís getting a little tiring hearing about Arnold jumping back into all his old roles, but shit, weíve seen him as THE TERMINATOR three times, twice as CONAN, and only once as Dutch. Why not dabble in a franchise that he hasnít exhausted already? As the sole survivor of the first film and all around BAMF, the character of Dutch has a lot of offer. I mean, the dude survived a literal scrap with a PREDATOR and an atomic bomb. Thatís the guy I want on my team.

By taking the franchise to the PREDATORS ďhunting groundĒ planet, the story is an open road. Name your direction and itís good to go. Personally, Iíd like to see the sequel open with Royce and Isabelle surviving on the game planet, probably with a few new members (much like Laurence Fishburneís crazed character), trying to figure out a way off the rock. Then, a new batch of ďgameĒ are dropped in, with one of them being none other than Dutch, who is there by choice, not capture. Give him some back story that has him working on top secret alien shit for the past few decades, complete with advanced weaponry, etc and a shit-ton of knowledge that makes him a veritable force to be reckoned with.

From there, you could continue the fight on the game planet, but I think it would be better if Dutch up Royce and Isabelle, and hijacks a ship to the PREDATOR home planet, which is so vibrantly described in the expanded universe novels as a clan-based, pack mentality race of beings. Throw in some bad-ass human warriors into the mix and there are a ton of directions to go. Perhaps end the film with Dutch, Royce, and Isabelle having to prove themselves in a big hunt, possibly on a planet populated by, you guessed it; xenomorphs. With the current ďcrossoverĒ appeal working so well for comics, why not make it work with monster movies?

Bottom line, itís time to jump back into the monster genre and I think PREDATORS deserves another entry (as do the ALIENS for that matter). The doors have been opened and there are plenty of talented folks who could field another chapter, right down to Rodriguez himself. If nothing else, itís just a cool, fun, and kick ass franchise that hasnít yet reached its full potential. I, for one, would like to see it get there.

Time to get back on the bike, Fox

'Predator' worked as well as it did because it was a damn good movie. It had suspense, good performances, memorable lines, brilliant direction, and a wholly original idea. With an action climax straight out of 'Most Dangerous Game.' The sequels were just that...sequels. Diminishing marginal returns. I get a kick out of them, but its hardly Star Wars or Batman.

Live in the now, whose making today's original monster movie classic?

I thought Predators was embarrassing and I like to mark that film specifically for damaging the current name of Predator (along with those AVP films.) Put Predator in the hands of someone who knows what their doing and then we'll talk.

What made the Predator interesting was the fact that it completely twisted a very popular genre. In the late 70's & throughout the 80's, the military action genre was all about "unstoppable military badasses taking out small armies", and it was incredibly popular. 'The Predator' took our expectations for that genre and turned it on its head.

Arnold got his ass kicked, and for the first time, he could only win by outsmarting the villain (even then he got lucky). This is perhaps the only Arnold film where the audience actually believed that he could die.

For years the superheroes of these military action films were considered the epitome of 'Badass'. Then the Predator came and slapped them around like a little bitch. This made Predator the new king of Badass. A new movie needs to learn from this. Take what is currently considered "Badass", and let a lone Predator make them his bitch. Maybe give us a Fast & Furious type of team, and let the Predator slaughter them.

Role Reversal

Nobody loves the predator anymore, so make him the protagonist ... and female. Definitely not attractive, but more streamlined (clearly able to tell female vs male with a silhouette)
So when she refuses to let her brood participate in the hunter's rite, she is dropped on a planet with no equipment right in front of some dangerous entities ... like the Celts.
-OR- Predator Wars: CROATOA, make it all time trippy and have her land on Roanoke Island, she has to survive against 90 men with weapons

-OR- Predator Wars: CROATOA, make it all time trippy and have her land on Roanoke Island, she has to survive against 90 men with weapons by adopting guerilla tactics and traps. This impresses her race watching and they pardon her, while the survivors are taken by the Croatoan Indians and their art work is found in a tribal art store by HP Lovecraft who uses it to base Cthulhu on. If that is successful you could have Predators punished on earth throughout history and having to fight epic warrior tribes. And just put in a little bit of symbolism to tie aliens into cultural art and legends of gods. The sequel would be called, Predator Wars: 27 Ronin where a war criminal must face bushido.

Nah, take it back to the Jungle

Cast The Rock. His team goes missing, the CIA has no choice but to get Dutch out of retirement because they suspect the same thing is happening again. Dutch and a new team drop in, find The Rock still alive, and they team up to survive.

Turns out the whole thing was a trap set up by the Predators to get Dutch. They capture him, and then we get ANOTHER film set on the Predator homeworld with Dutch, The Rock, Royce, etc etc.

But first bring it back to basics.

Just as Cloverfield was Matt Reeves' film not JJ Abrams', Predators was Nimrod Antal's film and not Robert Rodriguez's. Give Antal a little credit.

This feels weird because a few days ago I was watching Predator 2 and enjoyed the hell out of it. It brought back fond memories and I was thinking the same thing like 'someone needs to make another one'.
However, I feel we don't need a continuation from Predators but instead go with the 'hint' at the end of P2 as in, set the movie in the 18th century and it will be PoTC meets Apocalypto like someone mentioned earlier with the Predator in the mix because the way this franchise works IMO is how

Can't say much about the other flicks whose only goal it seems was a High Body Count.
In short the human characters aren't the main stars (Transformers, anyone?) they are just there to be audience surrogates in understanding the Predators.

Someone said it below. You don't need to bring back Arnold for this franchise. The films so far have not been dependent on the same character facing off against the Predator. PII featured an entirely different cast and backdrop and that film worked pretty well IMO. You can feature a brand new character (I'm thinking Jason Statham) and have him be a student of Dutch's tutelage regarding the Predators since the first film, and the film plays out as you stated above. Or perhaps take the films

Or perhaps take the films in a more lateral direction, the government has been studying Predators since Dutch's encounter and the events of PII, the Predators show up to exact some sort of revenge or decide to treat Earth as a new hunting ground but Earth's governments have created a specialized strikeforce to take on these creatures. The strikeforce goes into take them out but is caught off guard as the Predators have improved their technology as well, the team is put on the defensive and have to rely on their own intelligence to take out the Predators, much like Dutch in the first movie. For whatever reason, if you absolutely need Arnold to come back, bring him in as the Chief of the team of sorts and he directs the team from an operations point.

Here's my idea for a sequel with Arnold.

I liked the one with Brody, but it became too derivative toward the end (basically after Fishburne's annoying character made his entrance), becoming more remake than homage. I wouldn't mind a sequel, but given its relatively underwhelming box office and Brody's reputation for being difficult on set, I doubt anyone is ankling for another. My suggestion is to do what they were planning to do years ago, which was set the sequel in NYC during a blizzard, and have the brother of the original

My suggestion is to do what they were planning to do years ago, which was set the sequel in NYC during a blizzard, and have the brother of the original Predator come to the city to seek revenge on Arnold's character. This would be extra-cool since Arnold is old and grizzled now, and not quite the muscle man he was in his prime. It could be an elder Predator vs an elderly Arnold. I'd dig it. The blizzard atmosphere is also a nice contrast to the jungle-heat temperature of all the others.

I don't think the Predator series needs Arnie back, cool as he and the other soldiers in the original were. There are enough movies with aging stars from the 80s in them already. I don't begrudge Schwarzenegger his comeback, but this series would benefit from some new blood. Predator films have never been about the same guy running into them and really don't need to be. The Predator is a strong character and the films could act as a great way to introduce tomorrow's action stars. There's

I don't get all the hate for AvP:R. It was a great throwback to old B-movies where a monster is lose in some little town. it reminded me of Critters and the Blob. My biggest gripe was that the movie was way too dark so you couldn't see anything.

Here's my pitch...

Set the story on a remote hostile planet somewhere in space as 5 young Predators are dropped off with a handful of weaponry and a location to get to, thus beginning their final initiation into becoming Predator Warriors. Then we follow them on their journey as they face both environmental and creature dangers on their quest and maybe even have one of them turn on the others in an effort to be the only one left to inflate his own importance so there can be a central villain. And as the quest

(maybe even the one they send to earth, making it a prequel??)

No dialogue. ALL action. Completely bad ass. Completely Predator.

Thank you for writing this article because I totally agree. We need another Predator. Predator is the bees knees. On another note another Alien would be amazing. Why can't they do what marvel did. Build these movies until the meet up in one movie all together like Avengers. I miss my Alien and Predator.

preparing myself for thumbs-down

I think there's an inherent narrative restriction that explains why we haven't seen as much. They are a highly ritualized hunting culture that has included humans in their intergalactic big game. That leaves you at a cross-roads with two equally problematic directions. One: you go back down the same road, but it's all shades of difference. Hunting in the jungle, hunting in the city, evading capture on a game planet, evading capture on the home world. It becomes really formulaic. Two: you open

Hunting in the jungle, hunting in the city, evading capture on a game planet, evading capture on the home world. It becomes really formulaic. Two: you open the Predator's world to it's culture and society beyond hunting. Because the predator identity has been so rigidly presented, it would take a very talented and interested scriptwriter, free of studio pressure, to make something fresh and new.

An example why Alien is a little more free is that the formula is biological, versus cultural. You also see an evolution of the Weyland/Yutani relationship with the xenomorphs. Love or Hate Prometheus, it was a pretty bold attempt to expand the mythology. This just hasn't been attempted with Predator. Both "sequels" and the spin-offs have simply recast them in them same one-dimensional light (caste system notwithstanding). The longer you use them as the boogieman in these movies - the harder it is to do something different and more interesting with them. I'm not saying no one could do this - just that it would be hard, and why it hasn't been done.

Make the Predators almost unstoppable again!

This is what all the sequels have lost from the original. Even Predators made them look weaker than the one from the first, as if Arnold and his team were a bunch of pussies compared to Danny Glover and the others since.
A Predator should always be an unstoppable (ugly) mutherfucker!

Totes agree with this!

HUGE Predator fan. I loved the AVP movies when I was younger but now I see the many flaws in them. It's like the Ghost Rider flicks, it boggles my mind they could still mess them up when such cool comics exist, ya know? On that note, I agree with a previous comment making a Pred flick from his first comic series, with Dutch's brother as a cop trying to find out what happened to him, epic. The "suit-monsters" are being replaced, and I find it tragic!

Make it a TV show instead!

The Real Housewives of Predators

They could be these hot predator chicks who go around town showing off all the glamour that their Predator Hubbies bring them (ie: maybe some teeth or a skull with or without spine attached...). But then one would be like, "bitch, you be crazy".

I dunno, maybe?

Paul, I love your idea for a sequel with Dutch back. Dutch could be kind of like the KIrk Russell character in Stargate, where it's almost a suicide mission going to the Predator planet, but he doesn't give a shit. If Arnold could only make one more movie, I would want him to make one more Predator.

I did really enjoy the last movie. Although I was super pissed at Rodriguez for putting that awesome shot of Brody at the end of the trailer with all the targeting dots just to find out that he only did it for the trailer. He lost a lot of credibility with me that day.

This is my take on the next would-be Predator movie: After the even of Predator 2, Predator has been on Earth numerous time to do what it does best - Hunt/Kill. However, no one ever catch it. But then one specific town caught up in mysterious unsolved cases. And then, this can be either Arnold or Danny Glover's character to make a cameo role or supporting role, either of them could say he's been hunting this thing for so long because of the trail - the MO match, the kind of wound that only

The Key Element

I think the key element will be building a decent story that's separate from the Predators or Aliens as a solid macguffin, just like the first one. We don't have to re-invent the wheel on this one, and we don't need to retread the soldier-of-fortune angle, but I'd love to see a Predator/Apocalypto style mashup where we get to see an ancient, possibly extinct tribe, deal with the repercussions of this alien hunting them. It brings things back down to a more primal and maybe more savage battle

I think they should reboot AVP again first and give it to a director/writing team with balls and a true love for the franchises. I'd love to see this kind of story take place on some distant colony or better yet an orbiting space station far away where the stakes are higher. One of my dream projects if I ever got the chance.
