10 Cloverfield Lane's Dan Trachtenberg set to direct a new 'Predator' film
Because the world needs more Predators.
20th Century Studios has green lit a fifth installment of the near 34 year old PREDATOR series.
Deadline first broke the news revealing 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg has signed on to direct with Patrick Aison - producer on Wayward Pines, Kingdom, and Jack Ryan - penning the script.
Sources say the fifth installment will not serve as a sequel to Shane Black’s 2018 super-sized THE PREDATOR. Surprising, considering Black and Fred Dekker’s spinoff sequel left plenty of room (and intrigue) for a continuing story where the human race has been rendered prey while other worldly Predators are vying for superiority.
Then again, perhaps Trachtenberg and Aison have their sights on a story that operates in the same series universe - as the original recipe - and features the return of Schwarzenegger’s "Dutch" Schafer?
That being said, I'm not sure if anyone is here for that, let alone a fifth installment.
For now, we’ll file this under in development.
