The new Predator film is motoring forward it seems, and rumoured story details have come to light as well – more here.

Well, this suddenly seems to be happening quickly. The news that a fifth Predator film was in development only came to light last November, something of a surprise given the response to the last – The Predator­ – and also given the franchise is now under Disney control.

Still, with 10 Cloverfield Lane helmer Dan Trachtenberg at the helm, having developed the film for a while, there are plenty of reasons to be positive. And now we learn that filming is just a few months away.

According to the fine folks at AvP Galaxy, the new film is set to start shooting in May 2021. The production will be centred in Calgary, Canada it reports, and a plot synopsis has come to light too.

Appreciating this is subject to change and hasn’t been confirmed, it reads as follows:

The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms.  Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader.  As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe.  In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him.  Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not.  A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche.  When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.
