Shane Black’s Predator sequel was first announced a couple of years ago, though with Black completing The Nice Guys and working on a western pilot for Amazon, Fox had yet to make any promises about a release date — much less when Black and collaborator Fred Dekker would begin filming.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported that 'Predator' -- a movie from the 1980s starring Arnold Schwarzenegger that spawned a few sequels -- will be rebooted and be directed by 'Iron Man 3' director Shane Black.

This is What Jean-Claude Van Damme Looked Like in 'Predator'

'Predator' is not only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best movies, it's one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time, putting the musclebound action hero up against an unstoppable alien hunter.
