BREAKING NEWS: A new Predator movie is currently in development at the new Disney-owned 20th Century Studios! Not only that, Deadline is reporting that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg has been hired on to helm the new movie! With this exciting announcement, we have to wonder - is a new Alien movie in the pipeline as well?
The new Predator movie will reportedly not be a sequel to Shane Black's recent The Predator and will likely explore a completely new plot line separate to the established film chronology. However, at this point we know little about the details of this new Predator movie besides who will be directing it.
10 Cloverfield Lane surpassed expectations and created a remarkably chilling and uncomfortable sci-fi atmosphere. We can only hope Trachtenberg brings the same atmosphere to this latest project.
Previous to this announcement the last we heard about a new Alien movie was that Ridley Scott said a new film was in the works at Disney, but would likely veer away from the Prometheus angle he established. With a new Predator movie announced, we hope Alien isn't far behind!
Let us know what you think of this news and who you want to star in this new Predator movie by sounding off in the comments!
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
