A “reboot” (that’s when they make, say, a Terminator movie whose plot ignores all previous Terminator movies) of Predator from Fox would normally sound like an awful idea, but the rumor is Robert Rodriguez is attached. I’m not a huge Rodriguez fan, but if anyone could bring this project the proper level of ridiculousness, it’s him.
A reliable source dropped us a line revealing to us that Robert Rodriquez and his Troublemaker Studios will be producing the Predator reboot for 20th Century Fox. Now here’ the kicker, the pitch being sent around town implies that the reboot will have more than one predator. “In the reboot a team of commandoes face down a mysterious race of vicious monsters.” [B-D]
Hmm, it took Arnold Schwarzenegger to kill just one Predator, so by my count, to take down an army of them you’d need at least… three Jason Stathams. Come on, make it happen. “Oi, if it bleeds, Oy kin take me shir’ off, now doesn’ Oy?”
