The twice-postponed reboot of 1987’s Predator, The Predator, is currently undergoing reshoots in advance of its September release. In addition to new material, we’re getting word that the film is being converted to 3D—and that’s bad news, in my opinion. It suggests Shane Black’s film is lacking in substance, and producers are attempting to distract from a vapid script with razzle-dazzle.
Plus, The Predator wasn’t filmed using 3D cameras, meaning it will look terrible; just look at the recent Clash of the Titans reboot if you don’t believe me.

The Predator’s sizable ensemble cast includes Thomas Jane, Jake Busey, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Augusto Aguilera (and not Arnold Schwarzenegger *wink*wink*). Look for it in US Theaters beginning September 14th.
In the original Predator (Official Synopsis): Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a soldier of fortune, is hired by the U.S. government to secretly rescue a group of politicians trapped in Guatemala. But when Dutch and his team, which includes weapons expert Blain (Jesse Ventura) and CIA agent George (Carl Weathers), land in Central America, something is gravely wrong. After finding a string of dead bodies, the crew discovers they are being hunted by a brutal creature with superhuman strength and the ability to disappear into its surroundings.
Ironically, director Shane Black had a bit-part in Predator, alongside Schwarzenegger. He played Hawkins who was, unfortunately, the aggressive alien’s first kill.
