Larry Fong, the cinematographer on this year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” will shoot Shane Black’s “The Predator,” for 20th Century Fox, TheWrap has learned.
Fong is best known as the director of photography for Zack Snyder’s films such as “300,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” He next has “Kong: Skull Island” for Warner Bros. and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
Shane Black, who had a small role in the original 1987 film, is directing the movie, for which plot details haven’t been released yet. Fred Dekker wrote the script. Producing are John Davis, Joel Silver and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original film.
The original “Predator” starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a special forces team tasked with rescuing hostages from guerilla-controlled territory in Central America, where they encounter the title character, an advanced and aggressive form of extraterrestrial life. Carl Weathers and Jesse Ventura played fellow commandos, and Kevin Peter Hall played the Predator.
“The Predator” is set to hit theaters on Feb. 9, 2018.
Fong is repped by Worldwide Production Agency.
Slashfilm first reported Fong’s involvement with “The Predator.”
