You may have recently read that hot shot director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) is planning to reboot the stand-alone Predator series, in a big way.
While he may only be producing the project, he will be very hands-on, helping to bring a movie many of us have waiting many a year for to life, Predators.
Yes, Predators. Not Predator. Or even another lame Alien v Predator, but Predators – with the emphasis on ‘s’. It means we will finally get to see these big bad alien muthas hunting in packs.
We’ve seen glimpses of their little get-togethers – the end of Predator 2 for instance. Oh, and, in those deplorable AVP movies, before they get wiped out early in the piece.
Here’s hoping a fair amount of the action will even take place on the Predators’ home planet of Yautja.
What we probably won’t see is anything like these movie below … Though the ideas might be kinda interesting …

7. The Predator Bunch
After their spouses are killed on separate hunts, two worldly Predators meet, fall in love and settle down … in Small Town, USA, with their six kids … and a human housekeeper named Alice. One comical incident after another follows as the Predator Bunch attempt to adapt to their new surrounds. No amount of alien training though could have prepared them for the hostile surrounds of suburban life.
6. Predators of the Dead
It seemed like a good idea at the time. A group of down-on-their-luck Predators arrive on Earth – merry old England to be precise – hoping for some easy kills, build up the old confidence. But, they find the going a little tougher than they thought. A virus has caused the entire human race to become zombies. How do you hunt and kill something that is already dead?
5. Meet the Predators
A male nurse spends a weekend with his girlfriend’s family … which turns out to be her adopted family … which turns out to her adopted family of highly aggressive extra-terrestrial beings who have settled on Earth. Headed by an over-bearing daddy Predator, the family sets the young man a series of life-threatening challenges he must undertake in order to be granted permission to marry the girl. Is it worth it? Will he survive?
4. The Mighty Predators
After a hotshot lawyer is charged with drink driving, a court orders him to coach a struggling peewee hockey team, in fact, the worst in the universe. Fearing that any one of the players, or their parents, could rip out his spine at any time, the lawyer is at first a reluctant participant, but warms to the task, winning the players over by going to town on a rival coach with a hockey stick, and turns them into a mean, green, fighting machine.
3. The Predators
Starring some of the real up and coming stars of Predator cinema, the film focusses on a gang of Predators, The Greasers, growing up in one of the lower-income parts of their home planet, Yautja. It’s a life of chasing tail (Alien tail that is), scoring with chicks, rumbling with the snobbish ‘Socs’ over turf, and trying to find a decent denim outfit.
The story of three small-time Predators who land on Earth and infiltrate New York’s Italian mafia - ”As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a gangster … not a Predator”. Replacing their trademark dreadlocks and fishnet outfits with slick-back ‘do’s and Armani suits, the trio work their way up the organized-crime food chain. But, at what cost?
1. The Usual Predators
Five Predators have been taken into custody for a police line-up after another crack team of commandos have been brutally wiped out, each member skinned alive. While locked up, the Predators join forces to plan their next big ‘kill’. But are they just pawns in a sick and twisted game conceived by one of them. Maybe the one with the limp? The one at the end with the really bad haircut?
