Shane Black's Predator Movie Will Go Into Production This Fall
Shane Black's 'The Predator' is one of those rare sequels that actually has fans excited. That shouldn't be much of a boast, but in an age of never-ending sequels and reboots that nobody asked for, many Sci-Fi fans believe that Predator is a property that has never really lived up to its potential. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, the original Predator movie captivated and terrified audiences when it was released back in 1987, but subsequent projects have failed to recapture that magic. Shane Black, a man who featured in the 1987 Predator movie, is hoping that his upcoming Predator movie can succeed where previous sequels have, in many fans' opinions, failed.

On the promotional tour for his latest movie, The Nice Guys, Black had hinted that The Predator would be his next project. However, details on the project have remained relatively few and far between. That might all start to change soon, though, because it looks like work is going to kick off in earnest on the project sooner than we were expecting. The Director's Guild of Canada's, latest production list reveals that The Predator will start production in Vancouver on September 20th with an expected end date of 20th December.

With Black's work on The Nice Guys now all but complete and a production date just a few months away, it's likely we'll start to hear some concrete casting and plot news very, very soon. Black's movie has previously been described as "reinventing" the Predator franchise, but many hope that such a reinvention will include some form of appearance from the man who helped get it all started, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Whether it features Arnie's Dutch or not, The Predator is becoming more of a reality every day. Fox recently pivoted the movie's release date to avoid Jon Turteltaub's Megaladon monster movie, Meg, and now has a release date of February 9th 2018
