I was not a big fan of the way that The Predator ended. It was laughably bad. The original ended that was written would have been much better because it would have brought back Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from the first film, Dutch. Unfortunately, it the role was too small for Schwarzenegger, so he passed on it, which was a bummer. Thanks to Birth Movies Death, we have some details on how that original ending would have played out. But first, I want to talk about the ending we see in the movie:
Good news for Terminator fans, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he will once again play the cybernetic killing machine. In a recent interview with Screen Daily, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he will star in a new Terminator film produced by James Cameron.
“It is moving forward. He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise,” the actor added, “I will be in the movie.”
This is exciting news because Cameron has not been involved in any Terminator films since Terminator 2: Judgement Day and we all know everything after T2 was somewhat disappointing. It’s going to be interesting to see how this develops because Cameron is slightly busy working on the next four Avatar sequel films. It was previously revealed that Deadpool director Tim Miller would be working with Cameron on developing the new film.
What do you think about Cameron and Schwarzenegger teaming up once again? Is late better than never?
Everyone seems to be excited for Shane Black’s upcoming Predator sequel. And who wouldn’t be? If you consider Black’s history, especially with the Predator franchise, it makes a lot of sense that this could be the film to bring the series back to stardom.
Unfortunately, it looks like the original film’s star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is unhappy with Black’s sequel – and won’t be a part of it.
In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the actor had this to say:
As you may have heard, there were recent reports revolving around Arnold Schwarzenegger not wanting to do any more Terminator films. Well, turns out that’s not true. During a recent interview with Fandango, the actor called the previous reports fake news and says he’s “looking forward to doing another Terminator movie.” He says:
Uh oh. Arnold Schwarzenegger has read the script for Shane Black‘s The Predator and he says he didn’t like it! There was a part for him in the film but after reading the script he decided to not be a part of it. While talking to Yahoo! about the film he said:
“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it, whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”
We have another kick-ass list for you this time around! What is it about guns that we love so much? Who knows, but they’re cool as hell! Here’s a list of films that celebrate our love for guns, action and violence. These films make gunplay into an art form, which has now been given the name “gun-fu”. Are any of these your favorites? Let’s take a look at our lists, and see if any match up with yours. And there will be blood…. Continue reading
After the 1990 film Predator 2, Twentieth Century Fox lost focus on both their Predator and Alien franchises, releasing the underwhelming Alien vs. Predator, it’s even cheaper R-rated sequel, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, and then the Robert Rodriguez-produced reboot/sequel Predators.
Thanks to Marvel and their cinematic universe, every studio executive is shifting focus. There’s all sorts of eventized franchises afoot, whether it’s X-Men, Planet of the Apes or Ridley Scott’s new Alien trilogy.
Fox was quick to adapt, being one of the first studios to start spending money on respectable reboots. And while some failed (Fantastic Four), others have flourished. Prometheus, for example, has opened up the door for a mega-sized Predator follow-up, which is being directed by Shane Black. Continue reading
20th Century Fox issued a slew of new release dates for upcoming projects, including their highly-anticipated Predator sequel, which will hit theaters March 2, 2018. Writer-director Shane Black has previously revealed that the script is finished, which he co-wrote with Fred Dekker, and that it will be a sequel, not a reboot as previously rumored. While no cast members are officially attached yet, original Predator star Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed in an interview with The Arnold Fans that he’s planning on meeting with Shane Black soon to discuss the project.
