A remake of 1987's Predator is in the works at 20th Century Fox, it has been reported.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the action movie classic is being given the reboot treatment with Lethal Weapon creator and Iron Man 3 director Shane Black attached to the project.

Black will write the treatment for the film, before handing over scripting duties to Fred Dekker, with whom he wrote Monster Squad.

John Davis, who produced the original Predator movie with Joel Silver and Lawrence Gordon, is producing the remake, while Black is also attached to direct.

The original Predator from director John McTiernan starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers and Jesse Ventura as commandos being stalked in a jungle by a fearsome alien.

There was a sequel released in 1990, before Predator was combined with the Alien franchise for two Alien vs Predator movies released in 2004 and 2007.
