Shane Black teases 7-foot tall Predator and practical effects!

Shane Black teases 7-foot tall Predator and practical effects!

At the time of writing this, The Predator (Predator 4) director Shane Black is currently standing next to a 7-foot tall actor in a Predator suit! Black just made this tweet through his personal Twitter account moments ago in response to concerns by one fan regarding The Predator's use of CGI over practical effects. According to Black, no the film will not be utilizing only CGI - however we already knew this months ago when we learned Studio ADI would be making some fresh Predator suits for the fourth sequel.

The Predator will be introducing us to a new Predator, one that is an organic progression from the previous incarnations in the franchise. Though, the reference to its differences may only be concerning the Predator's weaponry and technology, of which we also know we will see new versions of in The Predator, we can assume The Predator will introduce a few physical changes to its appearance as well.

Currently no photos of any practical effects or suits have leaked so we have very little to go by in terms of what the new Predator(s) will look like. But, as new details and any photos do arrive, you can be sure to find them here, on first!

About The Predator

Shane Black returns to the Predator franchise to direct a new sequel to 1987's Predator! Officially titled The Predator! From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black's explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, 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 young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
