Titled The Predator, the film will be penned by Fred Dekker and Shane Black. Black has noted that the story will not be a reboot, but instead the start of a new narrative.
Predator, the sci-fi action flick that kicked off the franchise in 1987 saw a team of commandos, on a mission in a Central American jungle, pursued by an alien hunter. Predator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as team leader Dutch Schaefer, with Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura, Sonny Landham and Bill Duke playing commandos.
The Predator will be the fourth entry in the franchise.
