Finally, the script for Shane Black's highly anticipated Predator 4 movie has been completed! Posting on his own Facebook page recently, screenwriter Fred Dekker shared a comical drawing of a Predator by a 7-year old named Angus Herdon. The caption reads "A character from the new screenplay we just turned in".
Previously, producer John Davis had commented on the production of Predator 4, saying: “Shane shot a movie and he’s doing a pilot now, but I’ve read a lot of his script and I think it’s genius. I think it’s genius and I think it’s entertaining, and what it did is recreate a famous franchise in a different, interesting way; looking at it from a different light. He’s just an amazing writer-director. He’s got a way of looking at this that makes you excited again. I love this franchise. It was the first movie I ever did. I remember in being in the jungle with Arnold [Schwarzenegger] as a 28-year-old and going, ‘This is a fun business!’…Shane’s amazing. He’s an amazing storyteller.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger also recently discussed the upcoming Predator sequel, but unfortunately said that he had not yet been contacted about a role in the film.
As we await the studio greenlight, what we know so far about Predator 4 is that the film is not a complete reboot of the franchise, but a reboot of its sequels. From what we know so far, Predator 4 will take place after the events of the first Predator film, but before the events of Predator 2 and will likely have little to no connection to Predators.
Speaking of Predators as well, it was also confirmed early on that Robert Rodriguez would not be involved in he making of Predator 4. As more news surfaces, be sure to keep an eye on Scified!
