Considering several people have now sent this news in to me it must be something that others will be interested in as well.
The fellas over at LatinoReview received a little scoop on a possible Predator 3 recently giving word on a potential “restart” to the whole series, and while it sounds like an extremely bad idea to me that would make Predator 2 look like an Oscar winner, here is the story.
Without getting my own ass in trouble, here’s a smallish bit of news. Twentieth Century Fox are in talks with Johnny McTiernan to do a new Predator film – not a sequel, not a remake, not a prequel; more of a restart. There’s talk – based on a treatment that’s floating around the traps – that it might fix on Dutch’s (the guy from the first film, Arnie played) grown-up commando kid.
John Cena’s (one of Vince McMahon’s kids) name has been branded about for the lead – but it’s early days. They apparently want to coax JMT away from The Thomas Crown Affair sequel, have offered him this hoping it’ll do trick.
I had not yet heard McTiernan’s name attached to the Crown sequel so I am not sure how accurate this news is, but if you ask me this does not sound like the making’s of a story that will “restart” the Predator franchise, rather it sounds like the final nail.
