SyFy Wire has revealed that the original script for Predator is to be turned into a comicbook series by Dark Horse Comics.
The story will be adapted from the original 1984 script written by James E. Thomas and John C. Thomas. Originally called 'Hunters' the story will be re-adapted by Jeremy Barlow (writer), Patrick Blaine (artist) and Andy Owens (inker).
As SyFy Wire explains-
It actually centered on a group of military specialists on a classified rescue mission. So far so familiar, right? As time goes on, "the team soon uncovers a trail of lies and deceit," reads the official synopsis. "Something is observing them — tracking their every move. The hunt has begun!"
Speaking exclusively with the site, writer Barlow sounded excited to bring it to life.
"There’s excitement in seeing what might have been. The bones of Predator are there, but the original idea was so different and in some ways, much deeper than what the movie became — and we lean hard into those differences. Turn all of that over to a pair of dynamic artists like Patrick Blaine and Andy Owens, and the results are spectacular. Predator fans are going to lose their minds!"
With a sneak peek at the cover art, I can't help but get excited by this!
