10 Cloverfield Lane Director Lined Up For Gig

A new Predator movie is in the works at 20th Century Studios, with 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg set to direct a script from Patrick Aison.

Aison, known for his TV work on shows like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Kingdom, and Wayward Pines, has written the script for what is now the untitled Predator 5.

The sci-fi horror series Predator kicked off with the first movie in 1987, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose character leads a rescue team into Central America to save hostages and is confronted by a highly-advanced alien. A direct sequel was released in 1990 that took place 10 years after the events of the first movie, and then 20 years later we got Predators, a standalone movie based in the unspecified future of the same universe.

The Predator, directed by Shane Black, is a reimagining of the original Predator that still acknowledges the events of the series. It isn’t clear where the fifth installment in the series fits into the timeline, but it could be a sequel to an earlier movie or its own original story.

We’ll bring you more on this when we find out.
