PREY Director Dan Trachtenberg Says His PREDATOR Movie Took Some Influence From GOD OF WAR

We still don't know very much about Dan Trachtenberg's upcoming Predator movie, Prey, but the director has now revealed that the film will be partially influenced by the God of War video game.

We found out during last year's Disney+ Day that the Predator movie we've been calling "Skulls" since it was first announced back in 2020 will actually be titled Prey, and is set to release on the Hulu streaming service this summer. Now, director Dan Trachtenberg has shared a very interesting update.

The 10 Cloverfield Lane filmmaker took to Twitter to praise writer Cory Barlog's work on the recent God of War PC port, adding that the acclaimed video game had some influence on Prey. Trachtenberg didn't elaborate, but it's possible that Kratos' dynamic with his son Atreus could mirror that of Comanche warrior Naru (Legion actress Amber Midthunder) and her father or some other mentor figure.

There's speculation that this mysterious individual could even be a Predator, but that's just one of many theories doing the rounds.

Prey will take place "in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, following Naru, a skilled female warrior who fiercely protects her tribe against a highly evolved alien predator."

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 Disney/20th Century Studios is determined to breath new life into the franchise. The script was 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.
