Disney’s 20th Century Fox is currently developing a fifth Predator movie. Deadline reports this on Friday evening.
Dan Trachtenberg, who previously made the Cloverfield spin-off 10th Cloverfield Lane , has been hired as director. Patrick Aison, who previously wrote the screenplay for Kingdom and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan , among others , is developing a script.
The original 1987 Predator , starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is about a group of commandos in the jungle confronted by an alien race. The film became a blockbuster and had several successors.
The fourth and most recent installment from 2018, The Predator , was poorly received and flopped in box office sales. Still, Fox now wants to give it another try and according to Deadline , the film will purposely deviate from the tone in the last film.
