Predators script look

Sep. 28, 2009by: Paul Tassi

Using their devious magic, our buddies over at Latino Review got an exclusive look at Robert Rodriguez's script for PREDATORS, the remake that everyone has been bemoaning, but may change their tune after hearing just what it has in store. This is obviously pretty spoiler heavy, so turn back now if you want to remain completely in the dark.

To briefly summarize, the film is going to follow a group of eight humans kidnapped by the Predators and let loose in the jungles of the Predator home planet to be hunted for sport. The humans are a multi-cultural combo of badasses including Yakuza, Mexican drug cartel hitmen, Russian mob members, cops and serial killers. And they’re all being stalked by one giant “Super Predator” who has orchestrated the whole event.

I highly recommend watching Latino Review's script summary below, which features a nice little video montage to go along with the synopsis. It does a good job of spilling the details without being a spoiler frenzy. I didn’t think it was possible to be excited for this project, but I've done a quick 180 just from this video alone.

Extra Tidbit: And it's RATED R. Or at least it would be if this draft gets made.

Does R stand for Rodriguez???

I dont think i've seen a movie that Robert Rodriguez hasnt rated R. I am indeed happy to get these ppl finally up and ready for a reboot on a lost Aliens vs Predator world.

I truly do hope that RR has little creative control with this movie or it'll be shot on greenscreen, on digital not film, in 3D. And I'm not entirely sold on predator dogs and falcons. That just sounds lame. The characters sound badass though and with the right casting could be memborable.

Gunna have to wait to see a trailer, doesn't sound promising. The plots of all the AVP movies sounded cool written out in one sentence but in reality, they sucked! This seems in the vein of the newer Predator films - not a good sign.

So it's basically just the 50th variation of "The Most Dangerous Game"?

Sounds kinda silly. I loved the shit out of part one, two was weak and the AVPs are useless. Thus has potential but... Predator falcons? Predator dogs? Ehhh...

Wowzers! I knew it could be interesting but this sounds like it could be one of the sleeper hits of 2010. Excellent.

How would they have trophies of Dutch and Glover when they lost against them? Dutch died in a hospital bed and Glover walked off victorious (for the most part). Wouldn't make much sense.

i hope this "game preserve" is artificial. I hate when they fuck with continuity, even when the sequels are shitty. we already had a glimpse of the predator homeworld and it was desert, desolate and full of volcanoes.

Unless your going to dark knight it and start all over and say the last 3 predator movies never happened?

AVP dont count, there's been only two predator movies. And about the continuity stuff, maybe their planet is big enough to have different climate like ours. You know, snow in the North Pole, sand in Africa, dummies pretty much everywhere ...

I'm excited

Sounds like this will be one hell of a movie experience. I don't see how any of the humans can have a happy ending though. If one of them survives by killing the Predators, how the hell is he or she supposed to get back home?
