After being released to generally positive reviews, and respectable box office, it seems that Fox’s gamble on a mid-budget Predators film has paid off, as IGN reports, according to producer Robert Rodriguez, they are now likely to request another chapter.
Speaking at Comic-Con, Rodriguez said:
[The studio] said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have?’ Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one. So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there.
Rodriguez says the next step it to now work with writers to to flesh out the ideas he currently has. Considering the quick turn-around for the current film, it might not be too long before we get Predators 2
