Predator 5 is Happening With Disney!

by | Nov 24, 2020

One of the biggest questions us horror fans had about the Disney’s acquisition of FOX’s entire back catalogue was how the mouse house would handle R/15 rated films. Well, that has been answered with the announcement that Predator 5 is going ahead.

Deadline announced that 20th Century Studios has engaged 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg to direct the next film. However, according to Trachtenberg, he has been working on this project for the last four years, meaning that it pre-dates Shane Black’s The Predator, which only came out in 2018.



From his tweet, we can see that he had plans of announcing the film in a similar fashion to how 10 Cloverfield Lane was release, that film being a secret Cloverfield project that was only confirmed when it’s trailer hit. The great news is that it’s an existing FOX project that Disney have greenlit, so that’s awesome.

Deadline also note that the film will not be connected to 2018 film, being it’s own sequel. More news as it appears!
