Nimrod Antal‘s ‘Predators’ was the best movie reboot/sequel…EVER! It was a tight, edge of your seat nail biter, with colorful well written characters, and guns blazingballs to the wall action. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Aw man, we fucking loved it! If you liked it as much as us then you will be pleased to know that a sequel is in the works. At-least that’s what producer of ‘Predators’ Robert Rodriguez is telling us. In an interview with IGN at Comic-Con he had this to say,
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.
Rodriguez does have “an idea” of where he will go with the next film. He wants to hire different writers to come up with different versions of his take, and choose the best draft. When asked if he would direct the sequel, as Nimrod Antal is apparently out of the picture (busy with another project) he said, “I think I have too many people wanting me to do Sin City 2 first!”
Personally I don’t give a “Sheeeeeeeit” (god I miss The Wire) about Sin City 2. Well, actually that’s not true. I do. Would love to see it, but it’s been in limbo for so long I’ve pretty moved on. Kinda got tired of waiting. I just want MOAR Predators PLZ!
