Originality is getting scarce in the big H as of late as is evident by the slew of remakes, reboots, video game adaptations, comic book adaptation among others. Now word coming from IESB is that Robert Rodriguez will be rebooting the Predator franchise.
During Comic-Con last year double R mentioned that he’d be rebooting Conan, but I guess that fell through as Brett Ratner is apparently ready to take over for that franchise.
However, today, Rodriguez advised at a press conference in Texas the following:
“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.”
You may have noticed the ‘S’ at the end of the title. Read into what you like, but perhaps we’ll see more than one giant hunting machine. You can read the rest of the story over at IESB.
