New Predator Movie Badlands Brings In A Leading Lady With Sci-Fi Experience – SlashFilm

In an additional bit of reporting, Deadline also indicates that plans for a “Prey” sequel remain alive and well at 20th Century Studios, with original star Amber Midthunder intended to return to reprise her role as the Comanche warrior Naru. The film is currently in “early development” and sources went out of their way to emphasize that there are no official casting details available just yet, but this would mark franchise history should it come to fruition. As fans well know, this would be the first time a “Predator” sequel ended up starring the same (human) character the next time around. Previous leads have included Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Glover, Adrien Brody, and Boyd Holbrook. Specifics regarding the plot for the “Prey” sequel will have to wait until the production gets closer to getting the official green light, but director Dan Trachtenberg has previously spoken about his ideas for potential sequels – time will tell if any one of those end up being the main premise of this “Prey” follow up.

As for “Badlands,” it’s an open question whether the film will receive another straight-to-streaming release on Hulu or, in a welcome change, receive a theatrical rollout deserving of such a storied franchise. While the vast majority of audiences had to settle for a night in for “Prey” from the comforts of their living room, recent trends make a theatrical release for “Badlands” (and the other “Predator” films that may come in its wake) more likely. “Alien: Romulus” most recently reversed course on a streaming release and will bow in theaters later this year, so 20th Century at least seems to be willing to listen to reason and deliver on the big-screen experiences that audiences deserve.
