As for wether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will be returning or not, Black told the outlet that they are still in talks and that the details of the script are still being very closely guarded.
The picture is scheduled for release March 2nd, 2018. It is a collaboration between writer Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad) and Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). Decker made the announcement last year that he had finished his treatment of the script but things were fairly quiet on the Predator front until recently. In the past few weeks, we have seen a teaser image released and The Governator himself even revealed that he has plans to speak with Black about a possible return to the franchise. We still don’t know when production is slated to begin but with a release date announced, it’s likely set to commence in the near future.
When the project was first announced, it was rumored that this would be a direct sequel to the first film, ignoring all the others that came after it. And it seems as though that is still the case.
