We have more details on the upcoming PREDATOR movie. Courtesy of a new production listing: “The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well-defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth-teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.” Sounds good.
Neil Marshal, who brought us THE DESCENT, DOG SOLDIERS, and others, recently told the BOO CREW podcast: “…I wanted to come back and do a creature feature, I wanted to do some monsters, and just kind of combine elements from Dog Soldiers and Aliens and Predator and things like that…So [my next project is] a full-on monster movie with action and explosions and blood and guts and everything. We are just putting the financing together, with plans to shoot in May.” This new movie will be entitled THE LAIR and “centers on a downed Royal Air Force pilot who escapes a terrifying bunker in Afghanistan containing mutant man-made biological weapons and unwittingly brings the creatures back to a US Army base.” Sweetness.
