Predator 5 is coming – and it’s going to be learning some lessons from the films that came before it, it seems.

Work is underway on a brand new film in the Predator franchise, a good decade since we last had a half-decent entry in the series. Promisingly, 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg is calling the shots on the film, and it’s reportedly going by the name of Skull.

It’s being produced by John Davis and John Fox, and the pair have been on the promotional circuit for their latest venture, the movie Jungle Cruise. As you might expect, the subject of Skull came up.

Davis explained to Collider what the plan for the film was, and the early signs are that some lessons have been learned.

“It goes back to what made the original Predator movie work. It’s the ingenuity of a human being who won’t give up, who’s able to observe and interpret, basically being able to beat a stronger, more powerful, well-armed force”, he explained. This ties into the rumoured story of the film, of the Predator arriving on Earth for the first time.

David also adds that the new film “actually has more akin to The Revenant than it does any film in the Predator canon. You’ll know what I mean once you see it”.

We don’t think he means DiCaprio filming a secret cameo wrestling a bear, but we’re open to the idea.

The plan seems to be to release Skull on Disney+’s Star section, although no release date has thus far been announced. We’ll keep you posted though…
