New PREDATOR A Sequel, Not Reboot, Says Black

Reports from a few days back suggest that Shane Black's new PREDATOR film was going to be a straight-up re-whatever.  Now, Black himself confirms that it is not a reboot at all, but more of a true sequel, if anything. pretty awesome!
While the initial report said that Black’s new Predator film would be a reboot, Black tells us that he and Dekker see the project as definitely not a reboot, “As far as Fred and I are concerned anyway,” Black said, adding “Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine?” Black said he doesn’t like reboots generally, but can “really get behind inventive sequels”, noting that he likes “the idea of expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology, rather than hitting the restart button.” He went on to say that Dekker, who’s writing the screenplay, is “perfect” for the project, adding the two had a blast writing the screenplay for The Monster Squad together. Indeed, the result of their previous collaboration makes the prospect of the new Predator film even more enticing.
Now the question is will this be a sequel to PREDATOR 2, ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIM or PREDATORS?
