Shane Black takes on the Predator reboot

Alright, here's one reboot I can actually get behind. And it's not because I think Predator needs to be remade. No sir. It's about as perfect an action/sci-fi/horror flick as we're ever likely to see. Period.

What has me excited for the new Predator is the man 20th Century Fox has tapped to co-write and direct the movie -- Shane Black.

That's the right, the same Shane Black who co-wrote and directed Iron Man 3, wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and penned action classics Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout and The Long Kiss Goodnight.

Oh, and he played one of the soldiers in the original Predator. The dude who told all the jokes about his girlfriend's vagina. It doesn't get any more bad ass than that!

Black's bro Fred Dekker, who wrote and directed The Monster Squad and Night of the Creeps, is co-writing the new Predator. Don't get too pumped just yet, the flick might not start shooting until 2016. It's going to be a long ass time before we get to see it.
