Prey is an upcoming science fiction action film directed by Dan Trachtenberg. It is the fifth installment in the Predator franchise. It will be a prequel to the other films in the franchise and will showcase a Predator and his first journey to Earth. The film will be released on Hulu in 2022.
Prey is set in the year 1719 and sees Naru, a fierce young Native American woman, yearning to prove her worth as a warrior — bringing her face to face with the infamous movie monster on a new hunt. Previous reports suggested this next Predator film was being developed by 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg under the name Skulls.
Prey is the fifth installment in the Predator franchise. The Franchise began with a gloriously muscular 1987 action flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The series centers on an advanced alien race called Predators who seek out the best prey in the galaxy. In addition to Predator 2 (1990), Predators (2010), and The Predator (2018), the series has launched a media franchise spanning comics as well as the Alien vs. Predator films, which sees the property cross over with the monsters in Ridley Scott’s Alien.
The previous installment, 2018’s The Predator, was a box office and critical disappointment. The news of Prey’s premise and the title was released as part of Disney+ Day (Nov 12, 2021), which included a look at the Disney-controlled Hulu’s upcoming slate as well.
Cast of Prey
Casting for Prey has been shrouded in secrecy and very little has been released so far. We do know Amber Midthunder will be playing the lead role of Kee/Naru. She’s best known for her roles in the television series Legion and Roswell. Stefany Mathias, we believe, will be playing the role of Aruka, the mother of Kee/Naru and Taabe. Dakota Beavers and Dane Diliegro also have roles.
The Predator is back on the hunt in a historical thriller set in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago.
The upcoming Predator prequel, Prey, will take the iconic science fiction monster back in time to 1719 and take place in the Great Plains, with 20th Century Studios President Steve Abell describing the project as one of the studio’s several “big creative swings”.
Legion star Amber Midthunder will battle the Predator in Prey, playing a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior, setting her on a collision course with one of cinema’s most famous monsters.
