Predators Script Review: "Awesome"
Posted 10.02.09 by Ryan
LatinoReview managed to get a copy of the script for Predators, the sequel written and produced by Robert Rodriguez and directed by Nimrod Antal. The script, dated July 12, 2009, was described as "awesome" and a "90-page kick-ass sci-fi action movie worthy of the original" that is a "bloody, violent, hard-R script."
Fanboy enthusiasm aside, the review also outlines the plot of movie. Predators follows Royce, who, after a rooftop gun battle, is kidnapped by a Predator and brought back to the Predator home planet where he is thrown in with 7 tough-as-nails humans, mostly criminals who are "predators in their own right." The group of humans have been assembled as prey for the Predators to hunt and must try to survive in the jungle preserve of the Predator home planet. They are hunted by "Predator dogs, Predator falcons," and a "Black Super Predator," described as a "Predator jacked up on steroids."
The script also reveals a possible cameo for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Rodriguez has already reached out to the Governator, but there's no word yet on whether he will return.
While the cast of humans hasn't been set, Danny Trejo, Rodriguez's upcoming lead in Machete, recently said "we'll be doing Predator[s] next," revealing he has been cast in the project. The script review speculates that Trejo will play Cuchillo, a "Mexican enforcer" who has "twin Uzis strapped to his back."
