Predator reboot

01.29.2009

The rumor out of Bloody Disgusting today is that even trailblazers like Robert Rodriguez are not averse to reboots, as he is reportedly set to produce a reboot of PREDATOR. He's taking it up a notch though, this time a team of commandos will take on 'a mysterious race of vicious monsters'. As in plural. Schwarzenegger, Apollo Creed and a squad of bad asses were all but wiped out by one predator but in this movie this team will take on their whole race? Who is in this squad? exactly? Lo-Pan? John McClane? Sub Zero? The X-Men? Voltron?

There is no writer attached and no script. It is also unlikely that Rodriguez will direct given his considerably full slate of upcoming projects.
Extra Tidbit: In case you didn't see it the first time it went around: the amazing PREDATOR rap!

FUCK.

Robert Rodriguez makes such horrible, shitty, uninspired movies. I don't know how he passes them off to horror fans as good, I really don't. But he fucking sucks, end of story.

i would love to see those cast of characters team up against the predators.

i would have to add Dr. Manhattan to that list though, cause he's the ultimate weapon. wooo!

when will the reboot madness end?

I think someone in hollywood now knows the whole AvP nonsense was a bad idea. I never liked any of AvP movies and knew they'd be trouble (Remember Freddy Vs Jason? And between those two whose getting a reboot?).

I think they should focus on a sequel that pretends AvP1 & 2 NEVER happened. They way I see it, its still possible (unlike the Alien franchise) because if you remember the 1st & 2nd movie they hinted that the Predators have always visited earth.

Why not make a movie set during the

Why not make a movie set during the period of Pirates, Early explorers, etc? because the present, (Predator) and Future (Predator 2) were dealt with. Make one for the past!!!!!

The Predator is STILL a great!

I'd liked to see more of the Predator Homeworld..maybe get a backstory on their culture....but I guess that is asking too much.

How can you reboot a series that has no continuity???

You can make a movie with a bunch of predators attacking a bunch of comando's and it'll just end up being a new Predator movie... why would they call it a reboot?

If they want to reboot Predator and make everyone forget the PoS that is Avp (1 & 2), then they should just throw a pile of money at James Cameron and beg him to make the film, otherwise it would just be another B grade flop

Just come up with a new monster movie.

Why reboot? (Well, the answer is name recognition for advertising, of course)
But why not just create a brand new "Universe"?

You want to do an Alien Commandos vs Human Commandos in the Jungle movie? Great. Go for it. Start with a fresh name, and have a free hand to do whatever you like.

the only way it'll work is if the group of commandos are colonial marines. if not it will probly suck slimy predator balls.

only movie that made the predators look bad was avp1? avp2 sucked balls. they need to go back to basics with this and have the predator be a complete badass again. but fuck it, i have no hopes for this whatsoever

Ridiculous. Why not wait until Schwarzenegger is out of office and make a really good sequel in the same spirit as the first one with him returning? Sequels I don't mind so much in cases like this, but reboots and remakes? ENOUGH! Seriously.

sounds dumb

the original always will be the best, and is a classic in my mind.
it should be one squad against one predator. humans are no match against a team. its just fucking stupid.

I didn't even bother reading it.

"Predator Reboot" is all I needed to hear -- I'm out. You'll get $0 from me on this.

i think they should make a reboot of batman....again. except this time, it would take place in the future....bruce wayne could be a former genetically engineered super soldier. the joker could also be in it. he could be an evil computer virus running rampant and creating an army of machine clowns. that'd be awesome!

why a reboot the preditor franchise is fine. it just needs a part three! the only movie that made the preditors look bad was avp1

and im with everyone else how in the hell is a group of humans gonna stand up to multiple preditors. i cant even imagine the havoc three or four experiened preditors hunting together could cause.

JOKE!!!

i am chaulking this one up as a huge joke. it's gotta be. predator is an amazing movie that still stands up today. there is no need to reboot, remake, re fuck this up!!! AVP already hurt the reps of the predator and alien.
don't do this......

"strap this on your sore ass Blaine"

i really hope this is just some internet BS

Nothing about this is hopeful. the wrong person in charge, the wrong movie to remake and the idea that a team will face many is just to much. nothing good can come of this if its the truth.

I tried to think of something witty to say about this, but I just can't do it. Fuck this idea. Reboot, remake, I really don't care what they call it. There are some things you just don't do, and fucking with "Predator" is one of them.

No, thank you.

Predator is one of my all time favorite action movies. Now, I'm not opposed to all the whole reboot/remake ideas these days, but I really can't stand any of Robert Rodriguez's work.

I usually groan whenever I hear the word "remake" but not so much with "reboot". Lest we forget what happened when Batman was rebooted.

Plus, did everybody miss that ROBERT RODRIGUEZ is doing it??? I heard a rumor he had written a PREDATOR 3 script that involved both Schwarzenegger's and Glover's characters.

After the travesty that was the AVP flicks, I think a reboot is exactly what the PREDATOR franchise needs. And remember folks, reBOOT, doesn't mean reMAKE. And it's Robert

"That's a real nasty habit you got there."

For the second time today I find out they are messing with another of my favorite movies. Predator was a great movie that doesn't need to be redone. But if they add to the franchise and try to stay away from anything resembling Predator 2, AVP, AVP 2, then hopefully it won't suck.
"I ain't got time to bleed!"
"OK, you got time to duck?"

why not?

REBOOT? Yes. REMAKE? No, no, no. This is a franchise that I'd love to see have another good entry - Predator is awesome! Hopefully this is just a re-starting of the franchise, not a remake of the original.

Potentially okay. If this reboot is actually a SEQUEL to the Predator films directly, this may be good. If not...we'll see.
