Movie Review: RED SPARROW Daring film that is not afraid to show anything

Shane Black's Predator To Reinvent, Not Reboot

New film to play around in existing universe.

By Brandon Wolfe

Last year, it was announced that Iron Man 3’s Shane Black was working on a reboot of Predator (a film in which Black had a small acting role) with his old Monster Squad writing partner, Fred Dekker. However, producer John Davis has clarified that the film will actually be an “inventive sequel” that will incorporate the existing series’ lore.

"Shane shot a movie and he's doing a pilot now, but I've read a lot of his (Predator) script and I think it's genius. I think it's genius and I think it's entertaining, and what it did is recreate a famous franchise in a different, interesting way; looking at it from a different light.

He's just an amazing writer-director. He's got a way of looking at this that makes you excited again. I love this franchise. It was the first movie I ever did. I remember in being in the jungle with Arnold [Schwarzenegger] as a 28-year-old and going, 'This is a fun business!'... Shane's amazing. He's an amazing storyteller."

Shane's got a writing partner, Fred Dekker. They've been doing it together and Fred's great. The two of them together, they've been in the business for a long time, but the writing is so fresh, the perspective is so fresh. I'm telling you you're going to get something you don't expect and you're going to say, 'This is the most entertaining way to reinvent a franchise.'"


Black recently finished directing The Nice Guys starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, which will be released next June. Given other projects he presently has in the works, including Doc Savage and The Destroyer, it's unclear if Predator will be his next film.
