This year's The Predator marked was the first feature film written by Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps) since 1993's RoboCop 3. The film was also co-written with Shane Black, making it the first feature from the duo since 1987's The Monster Squad! These factors alone make The Predator a very special film for genre fans!
Still though, Dekker hasn't actually directed a film in 25 years! That's a damn shame if you ask me!
Thankfully, speaking with Retro Injection this month, Dekker touched on some projects that are in the works and also revealed that he is currently seeking a project to direct.
“Shane Black and I are developing a cable TV reboot of the 1960s British spy show, The Avengers, which I’m very excited about, and an action movie based on the old Destroyer adventure novels,” said Dekker “I’m also actively trying to find something that would put me back in the director’s chair – that’s really my priority right now.”
We have no idea what type of film Dekker is seeking to direct (fingers crossed for horror) but we're just excited to hear that he's looking to once again sit in the director's chair!
