With “Predators” doing good business at the box-office, producer Robert Rodriguez tells IGN today a sequel is likely.
“[The studio] said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?’. Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there” he said.
Rodriguez added that he has “an idea” of what he will do with the sequel and so the next step is for other writers to come in and pitch different versions of his premise and some new concepts. Would he direct? “I don’t know. I think I have too many people wanting me to do Sin City 2 first!”
