      They should do a 'generation kill' type predator film. predators like war torn hell holes. ones lands in afghanistan takes out most of an allied and an afghan unit. the remaining few soldiers have to band together with the last few afghans to kill predator using limited ammo and old school techniques.

      Why are some of you coming up with stupid plot lines? Just because something is being remade or 'rebooted' doesn't always mean it's going to be terrible. Granted most remakes are poor, but Robert is decent director and I think he can do something impressive for the franchise. I like the sound of the native American idea or maybe the a Mayan civilization would be better, since there's tie ins with aliens and their spaceships in Mayan culture. I think they he should go backwards and forget this huge budget blockbuster set in the future. One it's cheesy and two you simply can't make a piece of ideological genius when the content of your film contains lasers and high tech humans. Take it back to the begging and make it memorable.

      How about a new alien species slightly more powerful than the predator due to higher numbers have overwhelmed the predators on their home world and now look to Earth as their new home? Here they can wipe out most of mankind and re-build their army/numbers then launch a counter attack to get their old planet back. But doing this they expose earth to this new alien species and the only way of beating them is form an alliance with the remaining humans.

      How about a predator is hunting some soldiers and falls into a trap where the soldiers ambush him and rape him and the Predator gets changed by the experience and becomes an advocate for non-violence. Or maybe the Earth Humans get sick of the limited scope of the premise being used to create a whole franchise and they go over to the predator planet and kill them all as revenge. Or maybe instead of Predator 3 some writers and designers come up with a new monster and situation that digs into your primal emotions in a fresh way. Granted most remakes are poor, but let's get excited about them and give them the benefit of the doubt over and over again until we all give up and lower our standards for story telling.

      It's failry obvious that the only rational plot for Predator 3 is a Spiderman Batman Crossover.
