Shane Black talks The Predator and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return as well as the movie’s timeline

Look, we’re really excited for the new Predator movie, ok?

Now c0-writer director Shane Black as spilled some of the very cool details about the movie and how it will fit in with the first two movies (and maybe the dreadful AvP movies).

Talking to Collider (full interview is below), Black said the movie will likely be his next project.

As for the scale? Well recently Black said the movie would be a big, event-sized project. Now he seems a little less keen on the ‘big’:  “it doesn’t have to be huge—but it just has to feel like a Predator movie you want to see in the summer and line up for it… Let’s get back to the excitement and innovation of that original movie where it felt fresh.”

Like the other two movies (we reckon AvP is forgotten about), the movie “will be set in present day” and what about the rumours that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be back?

“I think it’s something we’re looking into, and as this thing evolves and takes on more of a shape, we’ll figure out how best to honor the tradition of what is really a remarkable first movie and even parts of the rest of them as well.”

We’re excited to see what Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang and Iron Man 3’s Black will do with The Predator… whatever it is, we reckon it’s well worth looking forward to.

Remember, if it bleeds we can kill it…

The Predator is slated for a March 2nd, 2018

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….
