Sin City director Robert Rodriguez will be directing and producing a reboot of the Predator franchise for 20th Century Fox according to IESB. The reboot will revolve around a “team of commandoes [who] face down a mysterious race of vicious monsters.”
Rodriguez talked to the audience of press members and revealed his upcoming film slate.
“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.”
It seems Rodriguez will be busy for the foreseeable future so we may not be seeing the reboot anytime soon. I didn’t see the AVP stuff, but I did see the original Predator and enjoyed it. If it is as good as that (or better) i’ll be happy.
Update from ERC: Apparently Robert Rodriguez is not directing, but still producing. The release date is set for July 7, 2010, however no writer or director has been hired as of yet.
