A couple of days ago, it was reported that Shane Black (Iron Man 3, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) had been hired to write and direct a reboot for Predator.  This was quickly debunked by Black himself who clarified that he was actually making an “inventive Predator sequel.”

The reception of Black’s hiring will likely be mixed after the release of Iron Man 3, but this feels like a good fit.  Say what you will about Iron Man 3 but the action was a great improvement over the first two films and far more ambitious.  While he probably won’t be able to insert as much humor as he normally does with his films, it’s a fairly safe bet that he will still find a way to make the film enjoyable. Also, Black already has some experience with Predator.  Granted, he is mostly known in the franchise as one of Schwarzenegger’s doomed soldiers but he also served as an uncredited writer to the original film.

What Black didn’t mention though is what the film would be a sequel to.  Does this mean he’s going to pick the series up where 2010’s Predators left off or will he take the Bryan Singer route and retcon the sequels that nobody likes (which in general is everything after the first movie)?

Will you watch this new Predator sequel?  Can Shane Black breathe new life into the franchise?  Tell us your thoughts in the comment section below.

is a native Texan who has had a love and fascination with movies as long as he can remember. He attended Sam Houston State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis on Broadcast Journalism. His love of film only grew during his college days, with seldom an hour going by without him making some kind of movie reference. He has since gone on a seemingly never-ending quest to see as many movies (old and new) that he possibly can, a task made possible by his Netflix subscription. Besides movies he enjoys television, reading, writing, video editing, listening to music, and watching Doctor Who.
