Over the past few weeks, we’ve shared a bunch of unused concept art for Shane Black’s The Predator, available on Blu-ray/DVD today. We’ve seen Predator monkeys, Predator spiders, and even a hideous Predator/human hybrid. Today, we’re pleased to share a video from Studio ADI that reveals an entire “menagerie” of otherworldly beasties were considered for the recent reboot.
The video’s description reads:
“Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s early drafts of the script for THE PREDATOR called for a menagerie of alien creatures to break free from the crashed Predator spaceship. The idea was that a rogue group of Predators would extract DNA for their own use from a diverse group of specimens collected from across the galaxy. Our goal was to create designs that would not look like they came from a single source. To get a wide variety of concepts, we brought in Brian Wynia, Ken Barthelmey, LucaNemolato, Jordan Morris, Farzad Varahramyan, Michael Eppinette and Tim Martin. As a side note, Shane and Fred always try to work a spider with a human head into every project they can. They’re like that. Our job was to try to make one look cool!”
Give Studio ADI’s video a spin at the top of the article; you can also check out the trailer and synopsis for The Predator below.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist can prevent the end of the human race.
