'Predator' to return again

The 'Predator' sci-fi movie franchise is heading back to its roots - by rebooting the original Arnold Schwarzenegger film.

The hit 1987 movie was brought back for a second time three years later in 'Predator 2', with Danny Glover in the starring role.

But the movie monster was borrowed by the Alien franchise in 2004's 'Alien vs. Predator' - combining the deadly creatures from both 1980s films. The mix-up was brought back in 2007 for 'Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem'.

And now director Robert Rodriguez has announced the series is set to continue with a new solo outing for the dreadlock-sporting alien hunter.

Rodriguez has written the script for the movie - titled 'Predators' - and will begin shooting after he completes work on his latest film project, 'Machete', according to Variety.com.
