New Predator film on the way with the writer of "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" attached

"Get to da' chaaaaaappaaaaaahhhhh!"

One of JOE's all time favourite films is the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi classic Predator. It's easy to see why. Loads of action? Check... Brilliant one-liners? Check... Carl Weathers getting his hand blown off in super slow-mo by a species of alien hellbent on hunting man for sport? Double check...

JOE is giddy with excitement to tell you that a re-boot of the 80's classic is in the works. Like you, JOE was sceptical at first but what if we told you that the man responsible for injecting new life into the franchise is Shane Black aka the writer of Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

Black , who also directed Iron Man 3, was actually a star of the original film and JOE couldn't be any more excited about his involvement here. The writer/director will be working on a treatment for the new film, but he is then handing script duties over Monster Squad scribe Fred Dekker.

JOE is already excited about this one and remember..."if it bleeds, we can kill it."
