When it was announced that Robert Rodriguez and his Troublemaker Studios were going to be inheriting the Predator franchise, news was that Rodriguez would keep the production mainly in Austin, Texas and ship in his actors and creature effects.
But, like Danny Glover will tell you: a Predator movie should really have a jungle in it. Just for good measure.
Which brings us to Tim Ryan and his Reel Hawaii report:
Scouts for 20th Century Fox’s $40-million creature feature are back on the Big Island for their third week of scouting Hawaii most of it where a lot of jungles have been looked at. The production would film for 18 days with an October start if the Hawaii portion is a go. That decision is expected to be made very soon…Some Hawaii production execs are being contacted about availability…
Predators will the the fifth film the creature has apperared in, the others being 1987’s Predator, 1990’s Predator 2 and the dismal Alien Vs. Predator movies, the second mostly dealing with the Predalien.
Predators will be directed by Nimród Antal and begins shooting on September 28th, a few weeks after Rodriguez and company wrap Machete, also in Austin. Predators tells the story of a group of people stranded on the Predator home world and the horrible surprises they find waiting there.
