The Predator hits theaters in:

'The Predator' will be Wondrous, funny and Scary! Filming begins February, 2017!

'The Predator' will be Wondrous, funny and Scary! Filming begins February, 2017!

News regarding 'The Predator' has been difficult to come by. However, this has changed recently as Collider obtained an interview with the director, Shane Black. Black revealed the start of production:

"“Right now we’re looking at probably beginning to mid February. I’m heading up to Vancouver in a week or two to go into a serious pre-production, so we’re on the cusp.”"

If the film starts production in February, then the project has three months to finalize casting. Expect some more casting news regarding the project in November or December as the roles are filled up during the start of production. Shane Black also shared a tidbit about the tone of the movie:

“I think the Predator movies have slightly veered from typical sci-fi in that there is a sort of thriller aspect to them. I think it should be scary, I think it should be funny, and I think ultimately it should be wondrous and about perceiving things that human beings very seldom get a chance to see… I don’t mean movie audiences I mean characters in the movie. I’m not saying the movie will be nothing anyone’s seen before (laughs).”

The tone of the film sounds as if it will try to balance some humor in the film early on as we first get to know the characters. The line about wondrous, may potentially mean we may learn more about the Yautja's culture and technology in the film.Shane Black then began to talk about the types of characters that would be in the upcoming film:

“I think it’ll be interesting to get a group of credible guys—the hallmark of the first one is you have guys together that are kinda funny and self-referential and also very tough. I don’t know that we’re going to deviate over much from that, but there are at least a couple of factors that we’ve deliberately chosen to make it not just that group of buff, tough guys“

The group in this movie seems to be a very diverse cast. It veers from a stereotypical group of macho soldiers to potentially creating more depth for the cast of characters. While no other character details have been revealed, it certainly is intriguing.

Shane Black also described some details about the rating of the movie, and how the studio accommodated them:

"Fox has been very cooperative. I mean part of it is the success they had with Deadpool, but I also made a case—and I think they agreed—that fans of the Predator generally, probably aren’t looking to go to see a PG-13-rated version of it. It would be more of a letdown if it was sort of tailored to a family friendly audience than if it were allowed to play out to the same scale and level that the first R-rated one did.”

The film being R rated certainly means that the level of violence in the film will not be toned down. It also allows for the film to be more intense, showcasing the ruthlessness of both the Predators and Humans during the hunt.

So are you excited with all of these new tidbits? Has the movie captured your interest with Shane Blacks comments regarding tone and characters?

My expectations for this film keep going up. The more like the original, the better! I'm glad Shane knows what this Predator movie needs and is willing to fight for it. He's right, we don't want a PG-13 rated children's story and we want the characters to be charismatic and funny. It's what made the original so iconic.

Yeah, Predators was a disappointment to say the least but at least it was better than the stinking pile that was AVP.

Yeah.. I would have been totally okay if AvP had stayed exclusive to videogames and comics. The films lacked severe qualities reminiscent of the respective franchises. I'm glad they're taking each one back to its roots.
