Dateline: Friday, 27th, June, 2014.

Introduction

It's that time of year when I become super-creative.  I've already worked on notes for two major SF film/TV series projects comparable to the Marvel universe plans but now here is an idea that's been in the back of my mind for many years - how to safely and intelligently reboot the Predator series.

As there is now talk of doing a new Predator film here is my contribution to the debate.

I'll try to publish samples from the script as and when I write it in the next few days, weeks, whenever, and if you like it maybe you'll want to make a little contribution to my starving writer's fund.

Welcome to the Predator Hunt.

Predator Hunt, speculative script for a future Predator film, illustrating Paul the Predator.

Predator Hunt

Pitch:  An old soldier returns to confront long-past nightmares and conquer his fears. In the process he may save or destroy the world.

(It's big, it's nasty and it deserves a really good stabbing, but it's sneaky, it's advanced technology and it's more sneaky.  So let's get sneakier.  It's time for a Predator Hunt.)

 

 

 

NOTES:- 

  • I'm writing this off the top of my head, this is a rough first draft based on memory of my notes from twenty years ago.  I've misplaced the notes so I'm having to recreate this on-the-fly.  There will by typos, a few mistakes and more.
  • "Anna" in the first two pages, is pure coincidence that I plucked that name out and may not have anything to do with the "Anna" from the very first Predator movie, or does it..?
  • This is not a typical Predator/Alien story.  I'm trying to add more intelligence, spin the story around non-Hollywood muscle-brained approaches and hint as much deeper maturity in much of the background and action.  This has brains, and not all splattered across the jungle floor, well mostly.
  • I'm tired of idiot scripts in the Predator/Alien series, let's do better.
  • Added one costume illustration: JungleSprinter
  • Added additional illustration of Predator beside Downloads...
  • I've identified a number of commercial spin-off opportunities from elements in this project which could offset film production risk and enhance world-wide popular participation.  Including video games, game arenas, hunting arenas/courses, clothes, weapons.  I assert and reserve all IP design, patent and copy and other applicable rights for these elements.
  • I wonder if this could be extended and developed into a TV series, if we could get Game of Thrones scale budgets?
  • I hope this can be more accurate for real-world military conduct, following all the year's we've seen special forces in combat after 9/11.  We need a greater realism if this is to be a greater story.  I can't promise this will be militarily accurate in every detail at this draft stage but that can be fixed in later drafts with a good ex-forces consultant. 
  • First in a new series - The Predator War?
  • Commercial financial risk can be reduced once I've completed principal fund-raising for another key project.  After this I should have credit lines to fund the entire project series.

(13/July/2014 - Will take a week or two off to contemplate the jungle combat scenes - these are going to be interesting, to choreograph several combats and many characters - and design a Duk to raise funds for future productions.

14/August/2014 - There's been a delay while I overcome recent reoccuring illness.  Managed to complete the Duk in time but been set back on the Predator work.  Willl get back to it as soon as possible... 

Thought you might like the additional illustration (left) to tease you!)
