Filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg is in negotiations to helm the fifth instalment in the "Predator" franchise.
The sci-fi action horror series started with Arnold Schwarzenegger-starrer "Predator" in 1987. The film, about an elite paramilitary rescue team who comes face to face with a technologically-advanced alien, was a major box office success and spawned three sequels -- "Predator 2" (1990), "Predators" (2010) and "The Predator" (2018).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new movie has a screenplay by Patrick Aison. The plot details have been kept under wraps. Trachtenberg is best known for directing the horror-thriller sequel "10 Cloverfield Lane". He has also helmed many episodes of popular series such as "The Boys" and "Black Mirror".
