The Predator franchise has used a variety of new ideas over the years, especially considering each installment is generally treated as its own unique story. This seems to be the case with the next upcoming installment of the Predator franchise, which is set to be directed by filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg from a script by screenwriter Patrick Aison. And what we do know officially about the project pretty much ends there. However, according to a new rumor, it looks like the movie might be introducing a concept that’s relatively new to the franchise – female Predators.
Although there have been female Predators introduced elsewhere in the franchise, such as the video game Predator: Hunting Grounds, this would be a first to have an actual movie focus on the concept. And, at a time when the Predator franchise might need whatever new life it can get, it could be a promising addition to the aging franchise. Of course, we’ll just have to wait and see if this rumor via insider Daniel Richtman at Patreon comes true.
In the meantime, there have been some interesting rumors regarding Dan Trachtenberg’s upcoming Predator film aside from the potential addition of female Predators. For example, there has been a previous rumor that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger could be appearing in the film as his iconic character Dutch. That’s a character fans haven’t seen in movie format since the original 1987 Predator, and after years of potential cameos never coming to fruition, Trachtenberg’s Predator could just make Dutch a big focus again.
But, as stated, we’ll just have to wait and see where this new film goes. As of now, there also still isn’t any kind of release date, so it could be awhile before we have any more concrete news. Nevertheless, as always, stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any updates on Dan Trachtenberg’s Predator sequel and the possible inclusion of female Predators as we have them.
