The movie would be a direct sequel to the original, possibly ignoring Predator 2, Alien vs. Predator, and Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. so we may consider it a reboot. The following Predator movie were maybe not as good as the first one with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the over-confident Rodriguez shouldn’t mock them, it’s not sure that his new Predator movie would fare any better:
Some are talking of an old script written by Rodriguez back in the 1990s that never got made in which Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenneger) is abducted by the PREDATOR and brought to their homeworld for some inter-species gladiatorial games. The script was also titled PREDATORS. So the plot of the new movie Predators probably comes from this first script.
