The boss of 20th Century Studios confirms that the plan is to launch Prey, the new Predator film, over the summer.

It’s no secret – even though it was originally meant to be – that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg has been working on a brand new movie set in the Predator universe of films. It’s going under the name Prey, and is in post-production now, the first film in the series to be made under new Disney ownership.

Now, in a long interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Steve Asbell – the president of what’s now known as 20th Century Studios – has given an interview where he’s been talking about his slate of upcoming films. In the interview, he confirms that just a handful of 20th Century films will actually be getting cinema releases, with the majority being made for Disney’s streaming platforms.

One of those is Prey, and he does confirm when it’s arriving, talking about a summer release date. He talks of how “you can take big creative swings” and “bold takes on beloved Fox properties” in relation to Prey. He also adds that it’s a “Predator movie set in the Great Plains in 1719”.

The film is expected to launch on Hulu in the US and Disney+ Star here in the UK. Summer isn’t that far away either. He doesn’t’ specify the exact release date, but the reveal of summer is a step forward.

More as we hear it.
