Predator 4 is set to answer one intriguing question from the franchise and that probably will be the main plot of the upcoming science fiction movie by 20th Century Fox. In the first movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer was engaged in a vicious battle with an alien in a deep jungle of Central America.
Although Dutch won the battle after the alien blew himself up with a nuclear bomb, it is still unclear as to where the creature came from and why he was skinning humans deep in a jungle.
"If you think of the first Predator as Alien, ours is much more Aliens. It's not Ten Little Indians, it's not, Let's kill off all of our characters, because we have a lot of characters, from a lot of different worlds and ideologies. I don't mean other planets. It's a lot of people doing a lot of things in a lot of locations."
Dekker also spoke of the back story of the extraterrestrial and hinted at exploring the bigger picture behind the curtains.
"There's a lot of great stuff in the Predator but it's very simple. Guys get dropped in a jungle, and there's an alien monster, and they fight the monster, and they all die except for one — spoiler alert! — and then the thing self-destructs, and there's a nuke, and then [Arnold Schwarzenegger] flies away. It's relatively simple. And our idea was, Okay, we know that story already. What's behind the curtain? Why are they here? What are they doing? What's the bigger picture of this?... I think these are questions you can answer, or at least explore, without defeating that sense of scariness. And who knows if their agenda's changed?" Dekker said.
It will be interesting to see whether the predator is a human-created monster or a living creature from another planet. Filming for the movie will begin in October this year.
