Two days ago it became known that Iron Man 3 director Shane Black is involved with a new Predator film.

Initially it was stated to be a reboot, but now Shane Black clarifies it is an "inventive sequel."

The Collider caught up with Black who offered the following about the new Predator movie:

“As far as Fred [Dekcer] and I are concerned anyway,” Black said, adding “Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?”  Black said he doesn’t like reboots generally, but can “really get behind inventive sequels”, noting that he likes “the idea of expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology, rather than hitting the restart button.”  He went on to say that Dekker, who’s writing the screenplay, is “perfect” for the project, adding the two had a blast writing the screenplay for The Monster Squad together.
