PREDATOR 5 Producer Confirms The Movie's Title; Believes It Will Be "As Good" As The Original

There's still a lot we don't know about the planned fifth Predator movie, but producers John Davis and John Fox have now shared some intriguing new details, while confirming the prequel's title.

We found out last year that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg would take the helm of a new Predator movie, and producers John Davis and John Fox have now shared some new details during an interview with Collider.

In addition to confirming that this installment will take place before the events of the original, Davis officially announced that the movie will be titled "Skull," and promised that the premise will take things back to basics.

"It goes back to what made the original Predator movie work. It's the ingenuity of a human being who won't give up, who's able to observe and interpret, basically being able to beat a stronger, more powerful, well-armed force."

"I feel like the first one was a wonderful, interesting movie and I know what worked about it," he continued. "I feel like we kind of never got back there again. We ended up in different places. I think this is a worthy complement to the first one. It's going to be as good."

"It actually has more akin to The Revenant than it does any film in the Predator canon. You'll know what I mean once you see it," added Fox.

We do now that the protagonist will be female this time ("a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior"), and it was recently reported that Legion actress Amber Midthunder had been cast in the role. We're still awaiting confirmation, however. 

Shane Black's underwhelming 2018 effort, The Predator, seemed to put the sci-fi action film series to rest for a while, but it looks like the now Disney-owned studio is determined to breath new life into the franchise. The script is being written by Patrick Aison, whose producer/writer credits include Kingdom, Jack Ryan and Treadstone.

The first - and by far the best - Predator movie came out back in 1987 and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a group of mercenaries who find themselves hunted by a merciless alien creature. Of the three movies that followed, only Nimród Antal's Predators (2010) really came close to matching the visceral thrills of the original.
