The new plot for Predator 5 might be set in the past. Predator is the science fiction action media franchise that encounters some extraterrestrial hunters known as the “Predator.” John McTiernan directed the first movie, which was followed by three sequels, Predator 2, Predators, and The Predator, which were directed by Stephen Hopkins, Nimród Antal, and Shane Black, respectively.
The series has many comics, novels, and video game spin-offs, including Predator: Concrete Jungle and Predator: Hunting Grounds; both the games got mixed reviews. The Alien vs. Predator franchise is the Alien franchise’s continuity consisting of two movies, video games, books, and comics. However, none of the movies received praise from audiences or critics. Still, the team has not done it yet. For fans, Predator’s franchise is officially dead. 20th Century Fox and Disney announced that the team is now preparing for Predator 5.
The initial plot details of the movie have been revealed. According to the report of AVP Galaxy, the storyline of the predator will be set in the Native Americans’ land. It also reveals that Predator 5 is under production with the working title “Skull,” which would follow a Comanche woman who goes against the traditions and norms to become a warrior.”
Dan Trachtenberg is directing the fifth installment of the franchise. Trachtenberg is an American podcast host and filmmaker. He is known for his 2016 horror thriller film 10 Cloverfield Lane. The filmmaker was also nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award as Outstanding Directing – First-Time Feature Film. Trachtenberg has also directed a short film Portal: No Escape and an episode of Black Mirror. His directed series The Boys premiered in July 2019 on Prime Video.
Patrick Aison writes the script of the movie. Aison has written the series, including Treadstone and Jack Ryan. The latter is the 57th highest-grossing movie series and was also nominated for four Academy Awards. However, the Predator 5 is still early, but it is already starting to sound amazing. The 2018 movie of the franchise, The Predator, ended with an opportunity to continue the storyline as a sequel. However, the makers will take a different path to create the fifth installment.
Trachtenberg’s Predator could make or break the franchise. Disney has now taken control of the franchise, and they are not likely to waste their money if not satisfied with the director’s idea. The new movie, Predator 5, could be an excellent way to refresh the pre-existing franchise.
