The Predator franchise is trying to be successful so it’s understandable why they have to keep trying. So far the Predator creature have been on the big screen four times. The original “Predator” with Arnold, “Predator 2” with Danny Glover, “Alien Vs. Predator” and the Nimrod Antal directed, “Predators” which also stars Adrien Brody in the leading role.
Yeah, true, Hollywood can’t come up with any ideas lately but I completely understand why Hollywood is obsessed with all of these reboots. Why? Simply because nobody has seen or heard of the original films. Doing reboots helps attracts people to the original films… that’s why I believe they do all of these reboots for past movie characters.
Shane Black is a great director as “Iron Man 3” was a good film so I’m sure he’ll do “Predator” justice. I doubt this will happen but it will be cool if Shane can get Arnold to play Dutch again… not for a leading role but a Dutch cameo appearance would be pretty cool. I read that Shane is after Chris Hemsworth for the leading role. I think that’s a great choice ’cause Chris is a great actor, loved him as “Thor”.
It’ll be cool if Chris and Arnold would team up together for the new “Predator”. Arnold will probably be in it in someway, hopefully.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former Governor of California, spent all weekend at the Arnold Classic Bodybuilding Competitions, he does every year. Well Arnold held a fan Q & A session there and the Arnold fan website, The Arnold fans, reported that they asked Arnold himself on what scripts he’s looking at for his big return to the movies.
Arnold reveals he is looking at 15 different scripts. Of course, the next Terminator movie is one of them. He also announced that remakes of “Predator” and “The Running Man” are in there too. Most surprisingly, Arnold said something about that he is getting together a film on which he will play a comic book character which he didn’t name. He will announce the comic book movie he will be in, sometime later this month or in April.
Arnold is no stranger to starring in comic book movies. The Conan franchise was based from the comics and so was the, Red Sonja movie. Also, Arnie was Mr. Freeze in, “Batman & Robin”.
What could his next comic book movie be? I’m thinking it could be Sgt. Rock or Doc Savage. Those movies were attached for him to star but those projects were scrapped since he got elected, Governor. Now that he’s done, maybe both films will actually happen?
I too am looking forward to seeing what his first movie back in Hollywood would be. I hope it’s an action movie.
