The Predator could be part of a new trilogy, according to Variety. Producer John Davis, along with talking about how he hopes Shane Black will return, says the film might set up two sequels.
The producer says that “The Predator” will set up two sequels that he hopes Black will return to direct. But Black doesn’t want to get ahead of himself.
“I would love to say we’ve been planning a trilogy, but I take one day at a time,” he cautions. “In motion-picture terms that’s one movie at a time.”
In the article Davis, who has produced every film in the franchise, praises Black for finding a fresh take, and for grounding the scares by creating more believable characters. So the keep going back to that sort of condescension of the original film.
That’s not a good way to get people behind two more movies…
