Quint from AICN
recently asked filmmaker Robert Rodriguez
about his upcoming reboot of the Predator
series, called Predators
Rodriguez said, "With a nod toward [James] Cameron's Aliens I decided to call it Predators. I set it on a jungle-like Predator planet."
Fox, who is co-producing the picture along with Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios, plans to hire a new writer and director, but Rodriguez still plans to be as involved as possible so he "can feel free to walk to the Predators
soundstage, pick up a camera and co-shoot the coolest scenes."
The filmmaker also said what he plans to do with the franchise:
"What I'd like to do with it is expand on ideas I dreamt up back in the original treatment, that had really expanded on the universe both the Predators and other species live in. We'd create new otherworldly characters while not taking away from the draw our main Predator has. I think another reason I called it Predators was to mark it as a project that should be taken seriously by a filmmaker to make a worthy follow up to a classic, much in the way Cameron made Aliens a compelling work on its own, following Ridley Scott's Alien."
