Arnold Schwarzenegger apparently doesn't like the new Predator script

So Shane Black (who actually co-starred in the original PREDATOR) is hard at work writing and directing the upcoming sequel, THE PREDATOR. And, while we haven't seen much from it yet (besides a surprisingly cheesy-looking cast photo), Shane Black has been doing some good work since his comeback with KISS, KISS, BANG, BANG (even though I personally hate IRON MAN 3, I know it was a well-made movie I just didn't connect with).

However, the question on a lot of people's minds was: will Arnold come back? Well, that question has been answered as he did an interview with Yahoo! News. Let's hear what he had to say about it:

They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.


So, as previously reported, Black's new film is most definitely a sequel to the 1987 original, and this just re-confirms that. And while it's disappointing Schwarzenegger's Dutch won't be showing up, in some ways that might be a blessing in disguise - let the movie live (or die) on its own merits, rather than trying to force-feed nostalgia. Still, it would've been cool to see Arnold in another PREDATOR movie.

Well, c'est la vie.

Either way, THE PREDATOR will come stalking into theaters February 9th, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: There was supposed to be a cameo for Arnold's Dutch in PREDATORS as well where he'd show up at the end, but obviously wasn't filmed.
