Another 80s action staple is on track to be rebooted. IESB is reporting that director Robert Rodriguez has announced plans to reboot the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film, Predator.

The director made the announcement at his Troublemaker Studios, where Texas politicians signed a reform bill to the state's film incentive program. Here's what the director said at the press conference.

"I'm going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons."


The site also confirmed that Rodriguez was indeed directing and producing the Predator remake, and it will be his own take on the original concept.

So will he be able to direct the Predator films?

His films are so cool to me.
He will do an awesome job on Predator.

Reboot The Predator ? Why ? Why Not make a Predator vs Terminator film instead ?

Wait they're actually making Machete? Heh. Awesome......but yeah I think he'd be able to do justice to Predator.

Because Arnold is too busy screwing up "Cah-i-fonia" forever and ever.

Well Rodriguez is directing the new one but its going to feature more than one predator which kinda sucks , i ussually enjoy it when its one lonesome predator taking on the entire team of commandos .

TVP would be awsome , they could make it take place in present time and a new BADA$$ advanced terminator is sent back in time to protect John Conner but at the same time a BADA$$ veteran predator comes to earth to hunt the Conners due to him having heard of how they have killed certain " metal monsters " and also hoping to catch himself one . Then it would have the first encounter between the predator and the terminator in a Mall (Somwhere crowded) , the predator uncloaks and reveals itself to the terminator unsheathing its wristblades and holding it double barreled plasma cannon in one hand and the terminator gets out its pump action and minigun (Dont ask me how it was hidden) -pause- and then BAM !!!

"Expendable" is a pretty good descriptive term for Arnold.

I have little doubt that, if necessary, Arnold could bulk himself back up to respectable standards (movie wise). He was, what, 59 when T3 came out?

Nah, I was wrong. He's 61 now, and T3 came out in 2003, so he was around 55. Still, point stands.

Yeah, me either. Even if he wasn't up to snuff and he was gonna be in the movie, they could just do it like in T:S.....have someone else be a body double, put Arnold's face on that guy's body with CGI and then have him do the voice.

If arnie is going to get back in shape he is going to have to train like hell , but if they ever do make a TVP it will more than likely feature new actors or even wrestlers (Which is not going to be good)
