Original Predator Star Rebooting Predator for FoxThough he’s gone on to direct blockbusters and has several more in the works, we’ll always love Shane Black for his “big pussy” portrayal of Hawkins in 1987’s Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle Predator. Now Black has come full circle.

THR reports that Black, the venerable screenwriter behind Lethal Weapon and writer-director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3, is now attached to helm a reboot of Predator for 20th Century Fox.

Black will write the treatment for the project and then will hand over scripting duties to Fred Dekker, his university chum with whom he wrote 1987’s classic Monster Squad. Black will oversee the writing and is also attached to direct. Will the infamous joke return somehow? You know the one…

The other day I was going down on my girlfriend. I said to her, “Jeez, you got a big pussy. Jeez, you got a big pussy.” She said, “Why did you say that twice?” I said, “I didn’t.”

Look for more on this one soon.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    This makes me sad, I quite like Antal’s “Predators” and been waiting on a sequel.

  • Cinemascribe

    I thought Predators was the reboot.

    Don’t care if it’s Black and Dekker this doesn’t need to happen. Something original and cool would have been better.

      Who’s to say they won’t add some originality to the Predator universe? I trust Shane Black to do it right; not sure about Dekker though.
