20th Century Fox has reportedly hired Larry Fong — the cinematographer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — to shoot the upcoming “Predator” reboot, simply titled “The Predator.” Fong also served as director of photography for “300,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch,” all directed by Zack Snyder. His most recent project is Warner Bros.’ “Kong: Skull Island.”
According to TheWrap, pre-production work for “The Predator” is currently underway, as the film is set to start shooting in February. The remake stars “Logan’s” Boyd Holbrook and “X-Men: Apocalypse’s” Olivia Munn.
“The Predator” will be directed by Shane Black, who played a small role in the 1987 original. Black contributed to the script, primarily written by “Monster Squad’s” Fred Dekker. The original film’s producers, John Davis, Joel Silver and Lawrence Gordon, are returning to bring “The Predator” to life.
On his approach for the film, Black recently said, “The worst thing you could hope for in one of these is a shot in bright sunlight of a field and the Predator just kind of walks on and ‘hello,’” adding, “You want to do…I keep going back to Ridley Scott, the way he captured the alien in that first movie. The sense of mystery and portent. If we could just cut into a little piece of that – that sort of vibe – and then I think there’s humor to be had too. And tonal shifting.”
“The Predator” is slated for a February 9, 2018 release.
