Prey movie director Dan Trachtenberg is returning to the world of Predator and has been hired by 20th Century Studios to helm the next stand-alone Predator film - reportedly titled Badlands, according to a fresh report from Deadline! According to the report:
Following the massive success of the Predator pic, Prey, 20th Century is moving forward with the next film as Deadline is hearing Dan Trachtenberg is returning to write and direct Badlands, a new standalone pic in the franchise that is expected to shoot later this year. The film is a high priority for the studio and sources say Trachtenberg and execs are already meeting with talent for the lead role.
Casting is currently underway, while additional plot details remain under wraps for now. Regarding a release date, one has not yet been set but unlike Prey's exclusive release on Hulu - this time around, it's very possible the next Predator movie will debut in theaters.
The fact Badlands will be another stand-alone Predator flick suggests it will not act as a sequel to Prey or have any link to other Predator movies.
