On an Instagram post earlier last week, Jeff Cutler, cinematographer, posted that the latest entry into the Predator franchise has officially wrapped. Cutler also posted a photo from on set, where the sequel, with a working title of Skulls, was being filmed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Not only did Cutler confirm that the shooting had ended, but he also confirmed that Amber Midthunder (Legion) would be seen in the lead role of the film. In the photo, there is also a clapboard, which features the film’s working title as Skulls, however in the traditional Predator style font.
In the caption to the Instagram post, Cutler added:
“And that’s a wrap on Skulls! Can’t thank Dan Trachtenberg enough for inviting me along on this epic journey and entrusting me to help achieve his vision for this film! Thanks to a great cast led by Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, and much love to a brave Calgary crew for diving in headfirst with us!”
Predator 5 will reportedly be set during the American Civil War, putting it centuries before the events that occurred in the original movie. The storyline will follow:
“A Comanche woman who goes against the gender norms and traditions of her tribe to become a warrior.”
Throughout filming, the production has been shrouded in secrecy, and as such not much is officially known about the plot at this point. The film’s title is still uncertain, with the title of Skulls being attached to the project, which was later reported to be the film’s title. However, Trachtenberg had fooled fans in the past regarding titles, most notably 10 Cloverfield Lane.
Fans should just wait, and until Trachtenberg himself officially announces the film’s title, we can all keep referring to it as Predator 5.
