20th Century Studios has revealed the logo and first images of the film project Prey, a prequel to Predator (1987) set 300 years in the past, when alien hunters first came to Earth. The logo and image are published on Twitter their official title soon after the project, previously known as Skulls, got the new title.
in addition they also announced a release schedule which falls in the summer of 2022.
The Prey logo takes the franchise back to its roots, with the film’s name scrawled in gray from Predator’s armor, and claw marks all over the title reminding fans that at its core, everything that happens is about hunting their “prey”. While the official images/photos give us a first look at Naru (Amber Midthunder), who according to the film’s logline is defined as “a persistent warrior who goes to great lengths to protect his tribe from alien predators who have advanced technology.”
Prey will be set “in the world of Comanche Nation 300 years ago,” and Naru is ready to defend himself with his bow and arrow. The film, which finished shooting last September, is currently in post-production before being released in summer 2022 exclusively on Hulu.
The film’s story will follow Naru, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Naru is very close to his younger brother, Taabe, who is groomed as a leader. Naru has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. When danger threatens them all, he sets out to prove he is capable of performing like any young warrior.
This film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) from a script written by Patrick Aison (Kingdom). Prey is definitely not going to be a sequel to Shane Black’s The Predator. Amber Midthunder (Legion) will play the main protagonist of Prey with supporting cast such as Dakota Beavers and Dane DiLiegro.
Midthunder himself is best known for his role as Kerry Loudermilk in the series Legion. She is also known as the role of Rosa Ortecho in Roswell, New Mexico. Midhunters recently appeared in movies The Marksman and The Ice Road along with Liam Neeson.
