Rodriguez’s Predator Film a Sequel?

Since the Robert Rodriguez film Predators was announced, there’s been some confusion. Is it a remake or a sequel? Today some inside info dropped leaning toward the sequel route.

MovieHole got word from someone close to the project that Rodriquez wants his film to be a direct sequel to the original John McTiernan helmed Predator and has even gone so far as to ask Schwarzenegger to reprise his role as Dutch.

Like Terminator, they know Schwarzenegger’s a vital ingredient of the franchise. Ideally, Arnold will see it that way too. Ball is in his court now,” says MovieHole.

Schwarzenegger’s “Dutch” has already been written into the script; no word yet on the size of the part. We’re thinking cameo, but hey, as proved by Terminator: Salvation, when it comes to Arnie, anything is possible!

    Predator 2 is fucking awful. Acting, directing, cinematography and writing are all abysmal. Though I suppose it might fall into the “so bad it’s good” category.

    Glad they’re ignoring it. The original film owns it in every possible way.

    • Genrewriter

      To be honest, I’m glad they’re going that route too. As much as I enjoy the second one, the first one is truly one of the best 80’s sci-fi films.

  • thedarkestshadow

    They might use the concrete jungle storyline. Which would be fine with me because i liked that one.

  • Rottenjesus

    Rodriguez + Predator = WE ALL WIN.

    Can’t wait for this!

  • ImTheMoon

    my vote is still for prequel set in the old west.

  • frank_dracman

    Predator 2 was good despite some loony moments. Still like the Ah-nuld one better.
    I do remember seeing the alien skull in the ship and getting 5 kinds of excited. Then years later our dreams came true. Only someone took a shat all over them. With no lights.

    Predator 2 is awesome.

  • PelusaMG

    Why bypass “Predator 2”? I thought that was an excellent sequel, even with the iffy ending.

    • DavidFullam

      I guess you and I were the only ones who liked it. I thought it set up many possibilities for Predator hunting parties in all manner of time periods for later films.

      • Uncle Creepy

        For the record … Predator 2 is BADASS!

        • DavidFullam

          I agree!

          • Sirand

            Yup, Predator 2 is pure 80’s excess and dripping with awesome set-pieces and insanely quotable lines.

            I find it incredibly fun.

          • PelusaMG

            It took the best of what worked in the first film, gave it a twist by setting it in the city and introduced the drug-war element, and then to top it all off we got Gary Busey. People rave about “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Aliens” and “The Dark Knight” as being examples of sequels that surpassed the original film, but for me I would happily add to that list “Predator 2”.

        • Genrewriter

          Absolutely. I can watch that third act over and over again, just classic.

    • Didn’t See It Coming

      I’ll say it…again. I like Predator 2 more than Predator.

  • arandomthought

    this gets me all sorts of excited
