AvP Dead, Predator Lives On?





Schwarzenegger may return to Predator?Now this sure would be a strange turn of events. Honestly, if any franchise lived on after the Alien vs. Predator films were done, I would have guessed it’d be Aliens, mainly because it's been around for so long. According to producer John Davis, however, it’s Predator.

Collider recently chatted with the prolific producer, who revealed that the Alien vs. Predator franchise is dead, but we might see another Predator film when Arnold is done with his current role as governor of California. ”Well, the Governor has mentioned to me that when he ceases to be Governor,” Davis said in his interview, ”he’d like to do a movie or two again. And I don’t know, maybe we could restart the Predator franchise.”

Understand this is all speculation from Davis alone; Schwarzenegger didn’t specifically say he’d like to reprise his role as Dutch, but since Predator was the first film Davis ever produced, he’s got a soft spot for it. There is no script and nothing even close to solid, but it’s kind of cool to know the idea is still being discussed behind some closed doors.

And hell, if nothing else, it’s good to hear that the chances of another Alien vs. Predator abortion are slim to none!

I would love it if they made a decent avp. Good to hear a predator might happen. There's less of a chance for that to get fucked up.

Look, if they can re-reboot the Superman and Hulk franchises (the former is in talks to happen after Singer screwed things up), why not do the same with AvP? Most people here seem to want to put the two abominations we have witnessed so far well out of their mind, so why not learn from your mistakes and let someone have a proper go!

What a fucking disgrace... With "Alien Vs. Predator" there was the chance to do something really creative and exciting, but instead all we got were two mediocre films from 'fanboys' who obviously spent far too much time mastubating over visuals, than they did reading and understanding the true nature of what made both these franchises great.

That aside, I hope another Predator film is made, because I loved Pred. 2 (even though the ending was a little too Hollywood for me). As for Alien, I cannot get enough. Let's see if something new can be done for this franchise too.

There's life in these two beauties yet, but let's keep the hacks away!!!

John Davis is the moron who hired Paul Anderson. I want him as far away from these franchises as possible.
