Shane Black assures fans The Predator will not be CGI

You know, the thought never even crossed my mind that the Predator in Shane Black's new THE PREDATOR flick would be CGI. And now that Shane himself has given us confirmation that the character will NOT be CGI, the horror of why I never thought about that before hit me pretty hard.

I mean, movies nowadays love to CGI characters. Hell, they even love to CGI people. But I guess I always thought PREDATOR was an untouchable creation so why bother? Thank God I will never have to contend with the other side of this coin as like I mentioned above, co-writer/director Shane Black took to Twitter to ease our fears.

Here is the man's tweet:

But I know what you're thinking. He says, "so no, it is not all CGI." Catch the "all" part? Yeah... But this doesn't worry me so much in that the Predator is going to be up to some epic shite this time around so it only makes sense that some of the moments will call for a CGI double. This is no big deal. All good.

But thank God anyhow. Woo.

THE PREDATOR is directed by Shane Black and co-written by Black and Fred Dekker (THE MONSTER SQUAD). The film stars Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn (see below), Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Edward James Olmos.

THE PREDATOR hits theaters nationwide August 3, 2018.
