It's barely been a year since the production of "Predator 5" was officially announced. The project, also known as "Skull", is intended to get the franchise back on track after its rather moderately rated predecessor "The Predator" from 2018. The filming of the movie seems now to be completed, which will initiate the post-production phase. This was revealed by cinematographer Jeff Cutter on Instagram, who quickly deleted his post shortly afterwards. There is also new information about the "Skull" cast, as two new cast members have surprisingly joined. One is acting newcomer and musician Dakota Beavers. The other is Dane DiLiegro, who has already starred in "American Horror Story" and was also previously active as a professional basketball player. In terms of content, there is no official information yet. However, it is known that there will be no relation to "The Predator". Moreover, there is a rumor going around that a Native American woman from the indigenous Comanche people will be at the center of the plot. She has great ambitions to become a great warrior, in contrast to the culture she was taught. If reports are to be believed, the film is set at the time of the American Civil War, in other words in the period from 1861-1865. "10 Cloverfield Lane" director Dan Trachtenberg is in charge of the development, while screenwriter Patrick Aison is responsible for the screenplay. Providing some continuity behind the scenes is John Davis, who has been a producer on every single "Predator" film to date. It is not yet clear when we will be able to see "Skull" in theaters, but we expect it to be released in the course of next year.
