“Predator” Reshoots Reshape Its Third Act

Movie News

 

20th Century Fox and director Shane Black have just wrapped additional photography on “The Predator,” the upcoming sequel that also serves as a mini-reboot of the franchise.

Originally slated to open in February, the film was pushed back to September in order to carry out several weeks of reshoots which have just been done. Speaking with Cinema Blend, co-star Keegan-Michael Key revealed the extent of those reshoots – much of the film’s third act. Key says:

We just finished [reshoots] last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten. And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.”

Previous reports suggested the reshoots were about the film’s tone which skewed funnier than the earlier films. The same reports suggested the reshoots will be to cut back on the levity and add some darkness back into the story.

Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Jane, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Alfie Allen, Sterling K. Brown, Yvonne Strahovski, Jacob Tremblay and Edward James Olmos co-star in the film which opens September 14th.
