Fox recently announced that they will be bringing back the Predator movie franchise, with Shane Black at the helm. However, it’s not going to be a reboot (which, as expected, has become the norm for returning movie franchises these days). In a recent interview with Collider, Black confirmed that it’s going to be a sequel:

“Why start over,” mused Black, when grilled by Collider on the nature of his plans, “when you’ve all this rich mythology left to mine?”

Black went on to say that while reboots leave him cold, he can “really get behind sequels”, noting that he was attracted to, “the idea of expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology, rather than hitting the restart button.”
