We’ve identified that director Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane has been at work on one other Predator franchise reboot of some type for the reason that finish of 2020, however there’s been little further info relating to the undertaking till now. Not solely does it sound like this new Predator has wrapped filming, nevertheless it looks like its title has probably modified barely, from Cranium to Skulls. In accordance with an Instagram post by cinematographer Jeff Cutter, we even have been given some names of the principal solid members.
Skulls, as we’re assuming the movie is certainly now titled, will star actress Amber Midthunder of Legion, together with Dakota Beavers and Dane DiLiegro, who’s presumably enjoying one of many extraterrestrial massive sport/trophy hunters often called Predators. Midthunder is seemingly enjoying the first protagonist, however past that, we all know solely that the movie supposedly includes “the Predators’ first go to to Earth,” as was acknowledged again on the finish of 2020.
That is an attention-grabbing route for a Predator reboot, provided that the primary movie launch in 1987 presumably occurred within the late Eighties, when the alien battled Arnold Schwarzenegger. If that is certainly a narrative in regards to the “first go to” of this alien race to Earth, then one would suppose that Skulls would by necessity be a narrative set within the Eighties or earlier. Maybe by going that route, we may find yourself with some Concern Avenue: 1978 vibes?
What this additionally no-doubt implies is that Skulls is unlikely to have a lot of any connection to the occasions of the 2018 reboot The Predator, which didn’t captivate both critics or audiences, and was notably criticized on the time of launch for a dated script from ‘80s icons Shane Black and Fred Dekker. Regardless, we’ll convey you extra info on Skulls because it arrives.
