Shane Black is set to reboot Predator and has also confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will star in current project Dr Savage.

Back in 1987 an Alien invasion movie hit the cinemas called predator, starring action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger since then there has been many new incarnations of the film, but none which have held the same original fondness as the original.

The last time we saw the return of the Predator franchise was in 2010 Movie predators starring Adrien Brody, since then there has only been rumours about possible story lines, and as with Movie viewers not giving any highly positive feedback to the film nothing else has been said or done.

But it has now been said by THR the man that brought us the Lethal Weapon Franchise, and directed the recent Iron Man 3 movie will be back to write the treatment and the go on to direct.

As well as Black working on Fox’s Predator project he is also currently lined up to work with Sony and direct and write Doc savage.

Doc Savage’s  was a physician, surgeon, scientist, adventurer, inventor, explorer, researcher, and, as revealed in The Polar Treasure, a musician. A team of scientists assembled by his father deliberately trained his mind and body to near-superhuman abilities almost from birth, giving him great strength and endurance, a photographic memory, a mastery of the martial arts, and vast knowledge of the sciences. Doc is also a master of disguise and an excellent imitator of voices. “He rights wrongs and punishes evildoers.

Although it has been recently announced that Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has agreed to take the title role, the film is currently facing budgeting problems so may not  gt of the ground.  In retrospect this will give Black plenty of time to start work on Predator.

If Predator does make the come back, like  some are hoping then expect Arnie to make atleast a guest appearance.

We will keep you posted on both these projects.
