Here we go again bro: The Predator is coming

A couple of years ago we reported screenwriter/director Shane Black was tapped to helm a sequel to the 1987 action classic Predator. Well, an update has arrived in a BIG way. How big? How about a teaser image promising the movie is indeed being made.

Yup. Check it out:

That's what appeared on Twitter and Facebook late Monday, and it's a pretty cool image. The question that now begs to be asked is how badly do we need another Predator movie?

Well, that's debatable. But Shane Black wrote some of the best action movies of the 80s and 90s. Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout. The Long Kiss Goodnight. Plus he wrote and directed the brilliant Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang and has The Nice Guys out later this year.

Oh, and he directed a little movie called Iron Man 3 and appeared in the original Predator. So yah, kinda glad he's on board.

Plus The Predator's co-writer is Fred Dekker, who wrote and directed The Monster Squad and Night of the Creeps, two horror classics in their own right.

The Predator's pedigree is in the right place. I'm willing to give it a chance based on that alone. Now we just need to know what the movie's about. I'm sure that news is coming.

Stick with us!
