Filmmaker Shane Black has confirmed that his upcoming new film in the “Predator” franchise is set to begin filming in October.
Not including the “Alien vs. Predator” films, this is the official fourth film in the series but will effectively serve as mini-reboot. It’s also a major event film said to be unlike any seen in the franchise thus far – certainly considerably ‘bigger’ than any of the previous films.
The film is currently targeting a March 2018 release. The original “Predator” followed a US Special Forces unit in Central America who square off against an alien that is hunting them down for sport. The new film will be set in present day.
