Dan Trachtenberg’s upcoming Predator movie has seemingly finished filming according to the movie’s cinematographer.
Jeff Cutter announced on Instagram that Predator Skulls had finished wrapping, which itself is an announcement as the movie was previously just called “Skull.”
Cutter’s Instagram post reveals a lot of details about the movie which has, for the most part, remained secretive. He even seemingly revealed two more cast members have joined the Amber Midthunder-led movie as well, as reported by Collider.
“And that’s a wrap on Skulls,” Cutter’s Instagram post above reads. “Can’t thank [Dan Trachtenberg] enough for inviting me on this epic journey and entrusting me to help achieve his vision for this film! Thanks to a great cast led by [Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, and Dane DiLiegro], and much love to a brave Calgary crew for diving headfirst in with us!”
As Collider points out, Beavers and DiLiegro’s roles in Skulls are still unknown, but considering DiLiegro has played monsters in American Horror Stories before, there’s a good chance he might be the actual Predator in the movie.
DiLiegro also commented on Cutter’s Instagram post and said “was a pleasure being your sasquatch.” Predators are basically alien sasquatches, right? Beavers’ role in Skulls is anybody’s guess at this point, though, and it might remain that way for now considering how secretive the movie as a whole has been so far.
New details about this Predator movie emerged back in July when it was revealed that the movie was going to be a female-fronted origin story tracing the Predator’s first journey back to Earth. Skulls producers John Davis and John Fox revealed this information back when the movie was called “Skull.”
The last Predator movie released was 2018’s The Predator, and it was written and directed by Iron Man 3 director, Shane Black. It grossed $160.5 million, which is the highest box office gross for a single Predator movie ever, but because the movie cost $88 million to make and more to market, a sequel was not greenlit.
