A “Desperate” Steven Seagal Missed Out on Starring in ‘Predator 2’

Steven Seagal

In a recent exclusive interview with me for Scream Magazine, Director Stephen Hopkins delved into all manner of anecdotes regarding 1990’s return of the Jautja, Predator 2 which turned 30 in November.

Despite not getting the greatest of receptions when it first came out, audiences both old and new have since come to appreciate the drastic change in tack that co-writers Jim and John Thomas went for once Hopkins was tapped to helm the project – so much so that it’s now considered a cult classic.

Whatever your opinion of the film, you really can’t fault it for being the perfect slice of mindless, mean-spirited sci-fi action it was always intended to be. Case in point: during the interview, Hopkins shared all kinds of anecdotes that no one had heard of in the three decades that have passed since then. Particular brow-raisers include a bizarre meeting with Steven Seagal who was “desperate” for the role that eventually went to Danny Glover and a break down of how the original script had intended to include Arnold Schwarzenegger teaming up with the police to take the Predator down in the streets of Los Angeles.

You can enjoy all of the above plus an assortment of other “candy” in the video below…

Review: WE GO ON is a Truly Human and Poignant Parable

Do you remember what it was like to be child? The days going by with nothing but time, support and no fears. It is pleasant when you close your eyes and remember as well as create scenarios that reflect innocence that you have experienced. It’s a powerful set of moments that make you feel warm, confident and free from anything that may hurt you. In the same breath, it is the same memories and feelings that can cultivate fear, anxiety and angst with everything in the world around you. This is one of the prime themes for the film We Go On from filmmakers Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton.

Another WolfCop Poster Packs 300% More Stallone

anotherwolfcop-caged

The whole world howled when, back in 2014, we were first introduced to the peaceful, rural community of Woodhaven, when alcoholic cop Lou Garou grew a few hairs on his chest and saved the locals from a gang of rebelious reptilian shapeshifters. Given the sheer amount buzz writer/director Lowell Dean’s loopy lupine horror/comedy spawned, it came as no big surprise when a sequel was green-lit. And now, two years later, Another WolfCop just made its world premiere at Austin’s Fantastic Fest and the buzz for the fuzz is back with a vengeance.

Given the success of director Vincent Masciale and scribe Luke Barnett’s hot TV property-parodying viral videos like “A Game of Thrones Halloween” and “The Walking Fred,” this writer was more than confident that their feature debut, the satirical shocker Fear, Inc., would remain faithful to the duo’s tried and tested winning formula.
