Robert Rodriguez dropped some pretty big news today as he announced his slate of upcoming projects, including Machete, Nervewrackers, The Jetsons, Sin City 2 and, wait for it, a Predator reboot. With so many movies in the work I wonder if Rodriguez even has time to bleed.
While Predator isn’t one of my favourite movies, it does have a special place in my heart as the first R-rated film I snuck into. So it’s surprising that the news of this so-called reboot doesn’t really faze me. Based on the title change alone it’s obvious this is going to be quite different from the original, and the concept lends itself to stand-alone installments. I can just imagine this being yet another Predator movie, not a replacement for the first one, like how the recent Friday The 13th remake was practically a sequel. I guess it’s too early to tell, but in a way I’m excited to see Predator finally get another solo film two decades after the last one. Anyone else up for another slice of Predator action, and do you think Rodriguez is the man for the job?
