Robert Rodriguez's Predators May Shoot in Hawaii

The jungles of Hawaii could soon be visited by a famous predator. Or rather, several famous Predators. Reel Hawaii recently reported that producer Robert Rodriguez's movie Predators may be partially shot in Hawaii.
Scouts for 20th Century Fox's $40-million creature feature are back on the Big Island for their third week of scouting Hawaii, most of it where a lot of jungles have been looked at. The production would film for 18 days with an October start if the Hawaii portion is a go.
Rodriguez has gone on record as saying that Predators is not a relaunch; it's a direct sequel to 1987's Predator. Rodriguez said that the film will not take place on earth and that he hopes that "people will forget all the bad sequels and only think this one and the original exist."
Nimród Antal (Vacancy) will direct from a script by Rodriguez, Michael Finch and Alex Litvak.
