In years past the Yautja, the trophy-hunting alien species of the Predator franchise, had become a bit of a side-character thanks to films like Alien Vs. Predator. In 2010’s Predators, the alien hunters were once again deadly, and with the help of writers Alex Litvak and Michael Finch and director Nimród Antal, people were getting the R-rated Predators we should have been seeing on screen for years. Since then it’s been quiet, but maybe it’s time to start hunting again.

Back in September Predators producer, Robert Rodriquez said he “owed the studio a call” about the Fox sequel, saying he always had a planned sequel in mind. With that being said, this past weekend on the Predators official Facebook page a promotional image featuring the quote, “There’s something out there waiting for us, and it ain’t no man. We’re all gonna die,” and the hashtag #HuntThePredator surfaced. Fox must have gotten his call as the keen eyes at Comic Book Movie pointed out the quote, uttered by Predator character Billy Sole, was featured over an overhead shot of Petco Park, near the San Diego Convention Center. This has led many to believe that Fox will make an announcement in connection to the franchise.

With them hosting a series of panels to promote and showcase their upcoming films, including X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Wolverine, wouldn’t it be a prime opportunity to make such an announcement? The only other question is, what is it?

Some are guessing it will be something new in the line of Predator feature films with Robert’s promise of a sequel. Others think it could be a new video game, due to the viral marketing of how this all developed. Honestly, were hoping it’s the former, seeing as the studio did such a good job and video games based on this franchise have never fared too well. We’ll have to see what Fox pulls out of their skulls in the next few days in order to know for sure.

One of the remaining casting holes in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For was filled when MTV caught up with Robert Rodriquez at Sundance. Rodriquez confirms that Bruce Willis will be back to reprise his role as John Hartigan. The other big Sin City role that is still waiting for a final casting decision is the role of Ava Lord.

We have some choices in mind [for Ava Lord but] we haven’t finalized the casting. She doesn’t shoot for a couple weeks.

Rodriquez also talked about the shooting already completed:

[Juno Temple] just shot, she was fantastic. Her and Ray Liotta played together, they were amazing. Jeremy Piven shot just last night… we were shooting last night, all night. There are some characters from the book. It might surprise people who they play and the turns that they do… Bruce [Willis] is back, so you’ll be seeing him…

He also spoke about shooting the film in 3D and it’s effect on the film style:

We shot this in 3D. We didn’t shoot Sin City in 3D. I wouldn’t want to convert that one probably. The difference in shooting it is just… you can’t even compare.

Because this is a very two dimensional world it’s very stylised. To see that kind of stylisation in 3D will blow people’s mind.
