Shane Black teases 7-foot Predator

April 24th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Shane Black has said his forthcoming film, The Predator, will be over reliant on CGI.

In response to a question on Twitter, the director said he was currently standing next to a 7-foot tall actor in a Predator suit.

As of yet, 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.

Studio ADI (Amalgamated Dynamics Inc.) will be providing the creature effects for the film and have worked previously on 2004’s Alien vs. Predator as well as 2007’s Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.

The Predator has a release date of February 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
