There have been rumours of a â€˜â€™Predator 3â€™â€™ for quite a few years now â€“ though nothing thatâ€™s come from official sources. The most recent bit of news â€“ this is going on a couple of years ago, mind you â€“ was that a writer had sent Joel Silver his take on a third and fourth Predator movie; one thatâ€™d see Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to reprise his Chicago-chomping jungle hero Dutch. As it turned out, Silver had nothing to do with the series anymore, so that scriptâ€™s still sitting in a manila envelope somewhere.
That script might be best going to Jon Davis. Davis, a producer on the series, tells Collider that theyâ€™ve buried the â€œAlien vs. Predatorâ€ franchise for now â€“ fuck yeah! â€“ and have instead decided to turn their attention to resurrecting the â€œPredatorâ€ movie series. Even better, thereâ€™s talk of Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to it â€“ after he finishes his Governorship, of course.
“Well, the Governor has mentioned to me that when he ceases to be Governor, if he doesn’t run for the Senate and all of that stuff, he’d like to do a movie or two again. And I don’t know, maybe we could restart the Predator franchise.
“Well we’d have to come up with a really good script and a really great angle on it, but Predator was the first movie I was ever involved with, so it’s always going to have a really soft spot in my heart.”
