Plot details have been few and far between for Shane Black’s The Predator but the director himself has provided a tease of the chaos to come in terms of one of the film’s locations.

Black took to Twitter and posted an image showing a sunlit jungle, which nostalgic fans would remember as the iconic playground that John McTiernan’s 1987 film dealt with. That movie debuted the Predator and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers as part of a special forces team who ended up in a fight to the death with the alien bounty hunter.

Black’s movie has also hinted at an urban setting, which draws parallels to Predator 2 which starred Danny Glover taking on the alien in Los Angeles. Recently, Thomas Jane shed some light on Black’s plot, stating that he’s part of a team of soldiers who’ll once more be tracking and looking to kill the hunter, although it was uncertain where this standoff would be occurring.

The Predator franchise crossed over with the Alien franchise in a couple movies that was set in the city, but Predators in 2010 took the war back to the jungle, although this was on an alien planet. It seems fans will have to wait until the film’s release date nears to get more details on the battle arenas, with the newest entry in the beloved franchise recently pushed from Aug. 3 to Sept. 14 this year.
The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Yvonne Strahovski, Jacob Tremblay, Jake Busey, Trevante Rhoades, and Edward James Olmos.
