If you’re looking forward to seeing Arnold kick some ass in Shane Black’s upcoming Predator reboot—simply named The Predator—you can pretty much forget it.
Yeah, we know, we’re just as sad as you are.
In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Schwarzenegger put the kibosh on speculation that he would be returning to the jungle for another few rounds with the beast…unless some drastic changes are made to the script.
“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it—whatever they offered,” said Schwarzenegger. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”
According to the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy website, an obtained—supposedly leaked—script limited Arnold’s character, Dutch, to relatively little on-screen time. According to the script, he only appeared at the end of the script for a short cameo with not a whole lot to say.
Clearly, Schwarzenegger is looking for a “more significant role” in the sci-fi thriller, and we’d love to see it happen.
