The Predator Delayed
Shane Blacks highly anticipated sequel to the predator films has hit a little road bump, and now it looks like the film won’t be out till next summer. Original the film was due for a late winter release of February 2018, but Twentieth Century Fox has just bumped the film to early summer,August 3, 2018, quite a bit later than anticipated. Now it could be seen that this is a smart move to capitalize on August blockbusters. Many films that come out at this time do really well, whilst avoiding clashing with the big boys a month later.
Blacks solid cast includes Edward James Olmos, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski and Olivia Munn. Rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character Dutch returning have been quashed by the big man himself who told Yahoo Movies.
“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”
Black is directing from a script he co-wrote with Fred Dekker, shooting is underway in Vancouver.
