The once-secret fifth Predator has a potentially interesting backdrop that was revealed when it was discovered that the film was initially in development under the title Skulls.
The logline had explained that Skulls/Predator 5 “will follow a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior.”
With the film gearing up for a summer shoot under the eye of 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s Dan Trachtenberg, a new production listing has revealed more details about the Comanche tribe and the young woman who will become a warrior.
“The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior.
“Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well-defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth-teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche.
“When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.”
Is that danger a Predator or Predators…?
With filming set for May 2021 in Calgary, Canada, expect some casting news in the coming weeks.
