Will Arnold Schwarzenegger appear in Shane Black's Predator?

There just might be some Predator hunting in Arnold Schwarzenegger's future! Last week, Fox set a release date for the next installment in the Predator film series, and during a conversation with The Arnold Fans at the annual Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, Schwarzenegger revealed that he is planning on meeting with director Shane Black. The actor also gave a quick update on the long-in-development Conan sequel THE LEGEND OF CONAN/CONAN THE CONQUEROR.

I haven’t talked with him (Shane Black) yet but I’m going to meet with him for lunch sometime soon. Just as soon as I’m finished with this (Arnold Sports Festival) and "The Apprentice" and all this stuff. But I will get together with him. If there is any news, we’ll of course let you know right away. There’s also a meeting coming up soon about Conan, about the project moving forward.

Obviously this doesn't mean Schwarzenegger will definitely reprise his role as Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer in the new movie, however it's possible his character is in Black and Fred Dekker's script, and it does sound like the actor might be interested in returning to the franchise. Do you think we will see Schwarzenegger's Dutch back in action in Black's PREDATOR?

PREDATOR will be in theaters on March 2, 2018.

Arnie has clung onto the Terminator franchise pretty effectively, but Predator is a different matter. He's not been a part of the franchise since the original, which kind of structures the series as not being about Dutch - it's about the Predator, essentially. I guess the most obvious way to include him would be to have someone track him down as an expert on this creature or have the Predator visits to Earth being something Dutch has tracked and obsessed about over the years (everyone thinks

Honestly I'm not that desperate for them to bring Arnie back to this series, but if they've got a great story to tell that incorporates Dutch somehow then yeah it'd be cool to involve him.

This would be awesome. Hopefully it would be more than just a cameo though!

Perhaps there's one too many predator movies but this would be cool nonetheless, it would have been awesome if he was in Predators instead of Fishburne, no disrespect to him but his character reveal was kind of odd.

That would be outstanding!

Predators kinda killed my idea. I would love to see the Predators kidnap every soldier/cop whatever has defeated a predator and bring them to their planet. Of course Arnold would be the only survivor after a huge war and have to take on the King. An aged war torn Predator, in a huge throwdown!

OH God yes! There has to be a place for him. And not a pencil pushing General or he's visited in a secluded cabin as he's sought for advice by the new star of the film.
I may go the Steven Segal/Executive Decision route. Bring him on the team but he gets knocked off at some point on the mission.

There hasn't been a single Predator sequel where the idea of bringing Arnold back hasn't been brought up, so I'm not surprised to hear this.

Wouldn't be the worst thing

As long as he's a peripheral character who dispenses advise. Like 'Stay the hell away!'

I would prefer a set of original characters.

Wait!

Black & Dekker, hehehe.....no.? I'd make a pun but I'm pretty sure very few people here would get it.

Anyways, I'm sure his role as Dutch will most likely be a cameo instead of leading the charge.

However, I'm sad that Predator 2 possibly wont be acknowledged. That movie holds a special place in my heart.

No reason why he can't have a small part as an advisor or something.

Not sure I want to see old Arnie fighting a Predator though.
