Plagiarism ain’t cool, so I always want to be sure to credit those who do the heavy lifting for me. In this case, it was the folks over at AVP Galaxy. They did some Internet sleuthing and came up with some details, even though none have been officially released.
Here’s what they had to say: “In December of 2019, Discussing Film exclusively announced that Trachtenberg was developing a film with 20th Century Studios and Disney called SKULLS, also written by Patrick Aison and was to be producer by long time Predator series producer John Davis. Discussing Film also provided some small details about [the] plot: “SKULLS will follow a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior.”
Then AVP Galaxy added: “According to our own sources Predator 5 will be set in the past (finally!) where it will focus around Native Americans before the territories were taken by the American settlers, featuring a First Nations cast. It seems quite likely that SKULLS is actually PREDATOR 5, perhaps a working title or codename.”
I concur. Considering how it’s been stated that the upcoming PREDATOR movie was supposed to be a surprise and that it has been in the works for years, and that movies typically film under fake titles anyway, I’d say the plot of SKULLS is really the plot of the next PREDATOR film, for sure. Sounds good. Let’s just hope the final product ends up being better than the last PREDATOR movie, THE PREDATOR, which was a disappointment.
