Robert Rodriguez talked to IGN about the possibility of making a sequel to his sweaty-Adrian-Brody flick Predators and…there is a possibility.
“[The studio] said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?'” says the filmmaker. “Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there.”
He goes on to say that he has an “idea” about what the film might be about and will have writers come in to pitch their ideas on his idea – then he’ll pick the best one. So, at this point, the studio’s interested, but Rodriguez himself has only a vague notion of what it might be about. If he’s taking pitches, here’s ours: How about Alice Braga doesn’t keep covered from head to toe in a freakin’ hot alien jungle? Is a tank top so much to ask for?
