Robert Rodriguez offers brief update on Predators sequel

Predators 2 is still a possibility, but it seems that there's some way to go...

Don't get too excited, as we've written news stories that are far more substantive, and have a lot more to say, than this one. However, we quite liked Predators, the Robert Rodriguez-produced belated addition to the Predator franchise. And you might recall that around the time, there were suggestions that Rodriguez and his team might make a further sequel to the film. Predators 2, perhaps.

ShockTillYouDrop briefly caught up with Rodriguez to see whether Predators 2 was a possibility. And while it's not ruled out, the change of studio head at 20th Century Fox may have an impact here.

"We were thinking about it", Rodriguez confirmed. "I don't know, I'll have to talk to them. They just had a regime change over there - we'll see what happens".

Hmmm. Predators did decent business, with a worldwide take of $127m to its name. Given that Rodriguez brought the film in on a budget of around $40m, and given the money Predators subsequently made on home release, that's not a bad return at all. We'll see in due course if Fox wants more...
