If you’re a fan of action movies, science fiction, or both, chances are you know about Predator. The 1987 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most significant films of the 80s and has created a big franchise. Back in November, it was announced that the unnamed Predator 5 project was moving forward, and Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane joined the same. A possible synopsis of the film has now been revealed.
In a recent report on the fifth film in the series (if you don’t count the spinoffs of Alien vs. Predator), Predator 5 reportedly takes viewers back to the pre-European Comanche tribe. The full synopsis, first reported by the AvP Galaxy, will reportedly follow Kee, a woman from the Comanche tribe who goes beyond established gender norms to fight for her tribe, presumably against the Predator. Through her struggle, Kee will try to prove that she is a capable tribal leader, despite her gender.
But this synopsis has not been checked, so take it with as much reserve as possible. But if that ultimately comes true, it will be one of the few Predator movies in which the lead female role will be played. Although there were some serious female characters in the franchise, they usually star alongside the male lead (Danny Glover and María Conchita Alonso, Adrien Brody and Alice Braga, etc.). In the alleged plot, it sounds like Kee will take a central role in the franchise. Although the films Alien Vs. Predator featured female presenters, these crossovers exist independently of the main Predator franchise.
There is still no confirmed release date for the unnamed Predator 5.
