Robert Rodriguez's PREDATORS officially confirmed today!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Yeah, you read that right. PREDATORS. Bloody Disgusting got the scoop back in January, but it is official now. Robert Rodriguez is doing a film called PREDATORS, which he's calling a reboot to the series. I'm hoping it's more reboot and less remake. Anyone remember the Predator script Rodriguez did back in the '90s that never got made? The one that had Dutch scooped up and taken to the PREDATOR homeworld? That was also called PREDATORS, so I wonder how much of that script will be in his reboot. I love the idea of the Predators collecting up various aliens that have defeated a Predator and pitting them against each other for combat's sake. We can't get Dutch 'cause Schwarzenegger's too busy being a respectable citizen now and Danny Glover probably wouldn't work in this aspect, but we can have a good starring role for a new badass. The question remains... how much, if any, of Rodriguez's previous script will make it into this movie, how will he shoot it (real sets or greenscreen) and when will it happen... All good questions. I have reached out to Robert trying to get some answers. We'll see if he responds. I'll let you know! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    that was a great comic

  • April 23, 2009, 8:35 p.m. CST

    First Predator should be re-released

    by mrplowking

    Everything about that first film is grade-A badassery: Dutch's crew, the predator, the music, the effects and dialogue that will flip you around and rape you ("I ain't got time to bleed"). Re-release into theaters and it will hold its own against any two-bit imitator nowadays. McTiernan's film owns you and you know it.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:35 p.m. CST

    btw, cali will be happy to recall ahnold

    Alan Silvestri is the only choice for the score! Rodriguez, be a geek like you were on Planet Terror!

  • April 23, 2009, 8:37 p.m. CST


    by DocDaneeka

    i just don't see him making the right choices and pulling it off. he's a B-movie director, and not the good kind. i sure hope he proves me wrong tho!

  • April 23, 2009, 8:38 p.m. CST

    keep expectations in check people

    by bullet3

    While this is positive news, Rodriguez has like 8 projects lined up right now. Even if he was completly locked for the project and the studio gaurunteed it would finance it, which isn't yet the case, it would still be several years before he could start filming this as he has many projects scheduled before this one.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:40 p.m. CST


    by SoulReaver

    Fuck, you are right. I'd be the first in line to watch it on the silver screen again! That would make most of those films today look like piles of shizzle.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:45 p.m. CST

    We need McTiernan back

    by m_reporter

    Lawsuits be damned. McTiernan was the best action director back in his prime. Predator, Die Hard, Hunt For Red October, all great action movies! <p> Hell, even Last Action Hero was enjoyable!

    Antonio Bandaras vs Predators?

    That would be cool. We've had a white guy and a black guy now we need spanish guy. Just imagine this phrase spoken by Bandaras "what are you looking at pussy face?" There you go.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:48 p.m. CST

    And Why Not Stallone?

    by MCVamp

    ABKing would agree with me. Rambo vs. Predator. GET TO DA CHOPPAH!!!!

  • April 23, 2009, 8:49 p.m. CST

    Sly vs Predators would be something else.

    by antonphd

    So would any of the badasses in the Expendables.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:50 p.m. CST

    It could work

    by RowanM

    Opening up the whole Predator Mythology could be a goldmine of inspiration. The action scenes could be good. Just no more of that stuff like in Desparado, the guy with the broken leg throwing himself off a roof to his death, just to fire a few shots was just dumb.

    if they did have Dwayne Johnson in this

    by antonphd

    they need to completely wipe away any trace of Disney that has collected on him over the last couple of his films.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:54 p.m. CST

    Was about time!

    by Lorquaine

    AvP franchise sucks BIG TIME, especially AVPR. Good that Predators is going forward. Now all we need is a continuation of the Alien series. :)

    Michael Parks as Earl McGraw vs. Predator

    by MCVamp

    "Well this is definitely the work of professionals. I'd guesstimate Predator hunt squad. Four, maybe five strong."

  • April 23, 2009, 8:57 p.m. CST

    so I'm guessing there won't be any avp 3?

    by darthwaz1

    that's too bad I actually enjoyed those movies- of course there was room for improvement but maybe the 3rd time coulda been the charm!

  • April 23, 2009, 8:58 p.m. CST

    Approach With Caution...


    This is indeed terrific news. But don't get your hopes up too far just yet. How many film projects have we been told have been "confirmed" or "greenlighted" only to see them drift away like clouds on a windy day. Rodriguez and his projects are not immune to this. This does give me something to hopefully look forward to, but I don't really start believing ANYTHING until I see photos from the set!

    by Quin the Eskimo

    I expect this as much as I expect Machete, Red Sonja, Sin City 2, Barbarella, The Jetsons, Madman, and any of the other 100 he's announced that I'm not remembering.

    weird he went this direction

    no Barberella or the Jetsons

  • April 23, 2009, 9:03 p.m. CST

    Why not just make it a sequel?

    by scnjedi

    Predator 2's cast was completely different anyway, so why not do the same again and make this the third? It'd be better than all this remake crap.

  • April 23, 2009, 9:03 p.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    Or Peter Scolari?

  • April 23, 2009, 9:05 p.m. CST


    by Shermdawg

    Superman? Sure. Johnson playing opposite a planet full of Predators? WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT OFFER THE GUY? Nothing. He's tried so hard to shed the wrestler image, and a flick where he has next to no dialogue would not only not help in that pursuit, but it'd set him farther back than he was when he started out in the Scorpion King. If Dwayne is gonna get a action role, IT HAS to let him showcase his charisma as well. And the Superman reboot would be a perfect fit.

  • April 23, 2009, 9:05 p.m. CST


    by DOGSOUP

    Fuck those abominations I wanted to see the Predator homeworld since I was fucking 10 reading Dark Horse comics (Keeping Portland Weird btw). This is it though, If Robert Rodriguez can't make an awesome Predator movie then I'm done with the franchise...FOREVER

    Look, everyone likes Predator. You show me someone who doesn't, and I'll show you a commie. Rodriguez could certainly direct a quality "re~boot". Just be sure it's for the fans, and not for kids.

    did his old script include....


    that the south american cultures where aided/inspired by the predator race? too bad avp's kinda mangled that up. but i figure rob rod will instill as much mexican pride as he can into a new predator we'll probably see another temple

    by ABking

    What a perfect film for Rodriguez to get Arnold in since he thought back in the 90's that he could pull out a great performance in Arnie. Arnie also told Fox producer John Davis he would love to do more PREDATOR films. If Arnie isn't too busy with TRUE LIES 2 for Fox, maybe he will agree to work with Rodriguez if he shoots in California and if the script is on the level of John McTiernan's PREDATOR film.

    by Darth_Kaos

    He has about 100 movies in the pipeline. Sorry to say, but only half of the movies he mentioned will actually be made. Remember, he was going to do that Red Sonja movie, and look what happened. The Jetson Movie will never happen. Sin City 2, will happen(cause he has to) and so will Machete(by public demand). Not sure about Predators. I'll give that 50/50, cause Rodriguez is the second most efficient director working today, behind Eastwood.

    What are they gonna do, make the Predators look different? Hire a new "Dutch"? Just make it function as a sequel, not a reboot. Don't restart the continuity - it's too easy to make the franchise "start over" without really restarting it anyway! Just let this be a new Predator hunt.

Roland Kickinger as Dutch.

  • April 23, 2009, 9:32 p.m. CST

    This will NOT be good. Here is why:

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Robert Rodriguez only takes pride in how cheap he can make a movie for and how many of the jobs he can do himself. He takes no pride in the actual quality of the film. <p> Rodirguez has absolutely no respect for the movie going audience, because if he did, he would spend as much money as it takes to deliver a first class production and he would surround himself with the very best crew money can buy. Instead of smerking and slapping himself on the back about how he can make a movie for no money, he ought to be fighting tooth & nail on behalf of his audience to secure an adequate budget. I get no enjoyment watching a second rate blue screen movie made on the cheap in Rodriguez's backyard. I am however impressed when a filmmaker tries everything humanly possible to deliver a great, believible, unique cinemagoing experience (ala James Cameron). <p> It still cost over 10 bones to go to the theater, whether the movie is made for a million or 200 million, so unless we the audience are getting a discount, I don't care how cheap you made your movie for, because you know what Robert (?), it looks it! Matter of fact I'd like to know where all the money went because it sure didn't go into a finely crafted film. <p> If Rodriguez cared about making sure the audience was getting their money's worth, he would not be doing the writing, editing, producing, music, set design and shooting himself, using horrible digital cameras in his backyard whith a blue sheet strung up on cloths lines and doing the effects on his home Mac. Yeah, he's talented, technically, so what? Cameron is more talented I guarantee you but he wisely gets a top notch crew to execute something Rodriguez really doesnt have, that's a vision. <p> Please give Predator to someone who intend to make a great film, who cares about delivering supreme filmmaking to the audience, not someone whom merely intend on making a cheap forgettable flick. I'd much rather see a name like Roland Emmerich attatched to this because I know he would at least do everything in his power to deliver the goods to the fans.

    Here's Rodriguez's actual statement, which AICN might have been wiser to post in full: "I'm going to be able to shoot my upcoming 'Machete' here, a sci-fi action film called 'Nerverackers,' a re-boot of the 'Predator' series called 'Predators,' and a couple of smaller movies called 'Sin City 2' and 'The Jetsons,'" he told the press. No sign of Red Sonja or Barbarella, but I feel like the latter is dead and I thought Rodriguez was only producing the former.

    by doctor_gonzo

    Reboot has become such a buzzword that they aren't reboots anymo

    by TallBoy66

    Terminator: Salvation is called a reboot. That movie is not a reboot, it's a sequel. (It takes place after Judgement Day in the future, that's a sequel.) So I have no idea what they mean by reboot anymore.

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    For fuck's sake, didn't Rodriguez go on and on at the time of the first film's release about how he wanted to do EVERY Frank Miller Sin City comic as a movie eventually? Now it's FOUR YEARS LATER, and not a whisper of him actually doing another one. We NEED to see A Dame To Kill For with Salma Hayek while she's still hot enough to pull it off.

    Get the fuck out of here. Really?

    by Psyclops

    Predators? I wouldn't mind seeing this happen if Rodriguez really ends up getting the project rolling considering the number of titles he's got lined up. I would imagine this is going to take a while for him to get to.

  • April 23, 2009, 10:33 p.m. CST

    This could actually...

    by SebastianHaff

    Be pretty fucking cool. With Rodriguez at the helm I'm not worried about bullshit PG-13 ratings or soft, blood-less gore. We'll probably even get a decent pair of boobies! What worries me is that he doesn't tend to take projects seriously. What I mean is, the wink wink nudge nudge camp of Planet Terror and even Desperado. What works about the first Predator is that it's an outlandish concept taking place in the real world. No laser guns, no blasters, no lightsabers. Just Arnie with a big fucking gun. <p> And since Arnie's unavailable, it must go to Sly. Aren't they already friends? Please make it happen, Mr. Rodriguez.

    Rambo v. Predator

    by MasterShake

    I think Sly would be up for it. Set it in the same Burma jungle as the last Rambo. Have Rambo encounter a Predator and kill it in some spectacular fashion. The Predators in charge are impressed with Rambo and it becomes a badge of honor to kill Rambo. The Predators start coming after Rambo one at a time, ala Jerimiah Johnson style, each Predator worse than the last. It ends when Rambo kills the chief Predator and they officially adopt Rambo into the tribe. I'd pay 10 bucks to see that.

    Fewer good ideas here than usual--not a good sign?

    by kevred

    There's always junk in talkbacks, but there are also always some great ideas, some unfilmable but geek-awesome ideas, and lots of basic, solid suggestions.<p>But here? Jason Statham? The Rock? Rambo? Predator homeworld? To be honest, a lot of bad ideas.<p>I wonder if that implies that this is a harder sequel to make than we'd like. There's not much to go on, after all--the first movie was perfect and complete, the second made a bit of a mess of what could have been a great idea (urban jungle), and the AVP films are absolute trash. Comic books? Comics brought us AVP, which is trash, so leave them out of it, I say.<p>Maybe the ultimate value of Predator is one perfect movie. I don't want to 'explore the mythos', I don't want some hack 20-year-old designer nerd coming along 25 years after the original and telling me what Predator buildings and ships look like.<p>The first film worked because of the mystery. It wasn't made to be a series. Moby Dick 2? Grapes of Wrath 2? War & Peace 2? Sometimes a story is just *a* story.<p>I don't want to know where Predator 3 is--I want to know where the Predator *equivalent* of today is. Who has the imagination and the guts to come up with something that good today?

    by GornPirate

    On a planet of Predators with no humans called Predatornia two members of the Ye Old Predator’s Hunting Club lives are turned upside down when their human prey survives and stows away aboard their ship and then gets lose on Predatornia. Two Predators, the lovable confidant, tough large, scaly behemoth-like Predator named John P. Williams (A.K.A. better known as Willy) and his wisecracking best friend/ apprentice the short, green Predator with large red eyes, Mark Bartkowski discover what happens when a human interacts with their world in the form of a 40-year-old Human man dubbed "MotherFucker". And now it's up to Willy and Mark to send MotherFucker back to earth before anybody sees him, especially their boss Chief Bob.

    it doesnt have many of the cliche characters that kill modern scifi flicks. there is no comic relief guy (a guy tells jokes, but isnt meant to be funny), no love interest, and even the corporate/military stooge(Weathers) is a badass. I hate how modern horror and sci fi flicks assume you have to make a checklist of generic stereotypes, and have them played by retarded teenagers. bores me to tears. <p> Predator was different.

Predator while we're at it. They're both exploitation at their respective heart. If ever there were a chance to breathe life back into the franchise, this is it.

    Breaking news: Predator 3 to be rated PG

    by BMacSmith

    by BMacSmith

    its not like there is a lot of continuity to consider here. for the love of god just call it Predator 3. i hate the modern bullshit sequel/reboot naming crap. just put a number on the end. if it was good enough or Godfather, its good enough for anything else.

    by scnjedi

    the Pred's cloaking device and shoulder cannon. The whole thing should be filmed on sets or on location (no green screen crap) and with a real guy in a costume for the Predator. Shame Kevin Peter Hall ain't around any more, but any big stuntman will do.

    Only worth bothering with this if...

    by Pumpkihn

    it's a sequel, not a stupid reboot. It has little or no CGI (the original managed just fine without it). It has cameos from Arnie and/or Danny Glover (hey, I can dream). It brings back Adam Baldwin's character who is still out to catch a Predator. And puts someone awesome like Dolph Lundgren in the lead role. Let's face it though, what are the chances of this a. getting made and b. not being a bunch of arse? Reboots only really work if they follow on from something that really killed a franchise dead, such as Batman and Robin. In my opinion Predator 2 in no way did that and if you count the two AvP flicks as part of the franchise (which I personally don't) even they aren't as bad as B&R. Anyway, I beleive the point I'm trying to make is that there is no reason not to do a sequel that follows on from the first two movies, despite the length of time that has passed.

    Here's how to get Arnold in it

    by Darth Busey

    Have some other younger dude star. He is on Earth, defeats a Predator in the opening scene, and then goes back to his life in the States. A few months later, he gets alien abducted by some Predators, and taken to their homeworld. There, he is put in a pen "Planet of the Apes" style, and forced to compete in gladatorial games. Along the way, he catches the eye of another older gladiator, who was captured years earlier, and is extremely gristled and numb to death. Arnold. New guy tries to get gladiators to revolt, and eventually gets Arnold to join his side. The big finale is all of the alien gladiators and the heroes facing off against a shit ton of Predators. Arnold sacrifices himself by blowing up some kind of bomb (laughing as he does it like the Predator in the first one), new guy flies off with some other aliens in a stolen Predator spaceship. Roll credits. $500 million box.

    The Predator movies died after Predator 2, which in an of itself was only okay, it can't get any worse. I would say that if anyone has a chance of getting it right it's Rodriguez, unless James Cameron wants to hop onboard which you know is never going to happen except in a dream.

Planet Terror was really that awesome? I saw a few minutes and had to stop watching (but I'll give it another chance if its as good as everybody says it's supposed to be)<p>I'll admit to never seeing "El Mariachi" but I've seen enough of the rest of the guy's work to have a valid opinion (i think) and I wouldn't exactly call it kick ass if he gets this gig.<p>To me, he's like a more talented version of guys like McG and Rattner....capable of only middling displays of talent but yet still convinced that everyone wants him to do exactly what he's doing. Still convinced everyone thinks he's the best person for the job and that his "geek cred" is much larger than it actually is...ahem.

    Much hostility friend, not sure it's necessary. <p> I should have prefaced my original comment by saying that I was originally a big fan of Rodriguez when he first broke onto the scene. I love Desperado and From Dusk Till Dawn. But everything since has been an experiment in how cheaply a film can be made instead of how can the best possible expierence be crafted for the audience. I do like Sin City but I can't help but imagine how good it may have been if it had been shot as an actual film noir out on the streets, instead of a kind of wink-wink blue screen parody. I just don't think Rodriguez is putting the audience first when he makes Once Upon A Time In Mexico look like it's shot on a handycam. <p> Hate me if you must, but I just don't want that kind of mentality in control of the Predator franchise, it's suffered enough already under the AVP banner. I really wish nothing more than for Rodiguez to totally prove me wrong and make me eat my words because I don't particularly enjoty ragging on him, but as a fan I have to say I feel a little betrayed and heartbroken by the course he's chosen to take his career. Search your feelings, don't you agree with me at least a little bit?

    This is my dream movie that I've always wanted to happen. I always pictured Predator 3 happening like a rogue predator gathering up humans who've survived the hunt, which is forbidden in predator society, cause survivors are safe from further hunts. Then some type of police predators are sent to catch the rogue, who also enjoys slaying his brothers in the sport. Meanwhile the humans are caught in the middle trying to figure out who are the good guys. You could have tons of interesting characters from all over the world as the prey, like soldiers, drug runners, terrorists. The Rogue Predator gives the prey a bunch of weapons to choose from knives to uzis and shotguns, even rare alien weapons that they need to figure out how to use. Somebody get Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham in this movie.

    Predators have stolen Chev's skull and replaced it with an alien alloy that is slowly poisoning his brain. Doc Miles assures Chev that he might be able to replace his own skull, but to slow down the process, he must cause severe trauma to his head! Join Chev, Eve, Doc Miles and the gang as they invade the Predator homeworld and raise some hell! In 3D, of course!

    if hollywood and all would go back to more "guys in suits" type efx, with CG maybe filling in and for accentuating, movies would be far better off....get back to where it's a craft, and make it so that CG isn't a crutch....I'll take guys in suits and the such (Jurrasic Park, Aliens, Predator etc.) anyday over full blown CGI.... again, just look at the shit that's out there.... Spiderman, 2 and 3, Blade 2, Catwoman, etc, etc., etc..... and these were films with TONS of money, TONS... and they couldn't do it right. I really hate CGI.

    Like the script idea

    by Kelg

    Predator 2 made the predators into noble fighters when from movie 1 they were pretty clearly just asshole hunters who like killing for sport. After that you got the Predators fighting along side humans in the Dark Horse comic. I prefer the predator who loses a fight and nukes a forest in revenge. So the idea is great. But I dont know he can get the budget to do it well. The idea suggests all sorts of aliens in a big arena and thousands of predators watching(ok I can see why those would have to be cg enhanced). The predators must be good quality costumes-not cg.

    by skimn

    Whats funny about Blade 2 as an example is that the practical/CGI design of the Reaper make-up is a great example of using CGI to compliment make-up. But the virtual full body stuntmen for the ninja fight was awful. So Blade is a great example of good AND bad CGI.

    by bobbofatz

    Here is how you bring Ripley back. Parts 3 and 4 were dreams while in hyper sleep. She wakes up years later(that would explain the aging). Newt and Biehns characters are still alive. Rip can get screwed by corporation all over again in a whole new adventure. As for Predator, Dutch gets taken as a live trophy to battle on new planet. Space distance could explain his aging. Forget the AvP abortions ever happened, and we could have a whole new Predator vs. Aliens series by Cameron of course.

    Kevin Peter Hall

    by fignootin

    The reason KPH worked so well as the original predator is because he was a professionally trained dancer. He knew how to hit poses and what shapes would be the most interesting for the camera. He made the predator lithe and stealthy, which added to the mystery and alien-ness of the character. Then you see the huge frackin dudes in AVP and they are so laughable because they're just thundering around in front of the camera. The giant suits didnt help, either.

    Why a reboot?

    by TurdontheRun

    Just make this Predator 3. It can still be called Predators (obviously a homage to Aliens), but just make it a sequel to the previous two movies. There's not going to be any continuity there anyway, so who gives a fuck. down with this 'reboot' nonsense!what are they rebooting anyway? this doesn't sound like a new start to this series, nor is it some partial composite of ideas from the first film.<p>Anyway, I don't think there's anything to complain about here; alien and predator have had the coffin shut and the nails driven in so many times, that this can't really damage anything now. Rodriguez is decent. I'd never call him a great film maker, but he's a decent action director. Most of his 'adult' movies have been at least watchable(never bothered seeing his kiddie stuff). he's better than some hack or bland journeyman anyway; I give him credit because at least he's got heart,unlike some soulless automaton like Brett Ratner or Rob Cohen, even if he's never made a truly great film.

    Dark Horse Comics Predator Sequel

    by TurdontheRun

    Came out in late 80's, I think. It had Dutch's brother as the main character, and was set in New York. It was somewhat like the movie (but far better written), being about wars between the cops and rival gangs, which the Predator comes in to hunt. Dutch's brother encounters the Predator and travels to South America to try to discover what happened to his brother. Then there is a big battle in the city between cops, criminals, and arriving Predator ships. They should have just made that Predator 2; they could have cast Dolph Lundgren as Dutch's bro. It was a really good sequel and would have made a truly worthy follow up to the original movie,at least as good as you could make it without having Arnie in it, although it would probably have been too expensive to make. There were also dark horse comics that followed on from Aliens, that would have formed the basis for far more imaginative and exciting sequels than what we got there as well.

A writer and director have not been found yet, but the hunt is on! The first Predator was a summer release as well, opening on June 12, 1987. Right now, Predators faces competition with M.

I'm still upset that AvP was ever made, because it was starting to look like Alien 5 would happen with Ridley Scott and James Cameron sounding interested (and let's be honest, a Scott-Cameron teamup for Alien 5 would have kicked major ass), but AvP wiped that out.<p>But if Predators gets made, and does well...then I think there could be the potential for a Alien 5 (just no newborn, please!)

    Consider the first two movies

    by deathbunny32

    I've always seen the Predator movies as typical action movies spiced up with predators. Predator had Arnie, that one guy from Commando, Jesse Ventura, and Motherfucking Apollo Creed, in the jungle, blowing the crap out of columbians. It was basically Commando/Rambo. Then they added the predator. Predator 2 was the typical cop action movie in the beginning, with the vicious gunfight between cops and druglords. Shit, it had Danny Glover! Then the predators came in. Predator starts off as a regular action movie, then they add predators. Unless they go to the homeworld, the logical move would to do War action movies. So, make Saving Private Ryan with a Predator, or Black Hawk Down with a Predator, or Glory with a Predator.

    This possibly can work! Though my Pred 3-

    by Violator90

    I always thought of a PREDATOR movie set 10-20 years late after the 2nd one. Since the 1st and 2nd movies did establish that Preds only hunt on the hottest years, the remote jungles of Africa would be perfect. Predators. And what better hunt than a hunter; have hunters from some secluded African tribes being hunted by a Pred and really give him a hunt of his life. As for setting in on a Predator planet, it makes no since to me. Predators are the quintessential hunters: ANY prey, ANY time, ANY where. It’s all about the thrill of the hunt. Having the Preds hunt on their home planet is like hunting in your backyard. But the idea of having past “champions” that defeated Preds and have one huge “champion hunt” on a totally new uninhabited planet sounds like a perfect way to go. What greater hunt is there for something that lives just for the hunt is to hunt the best of the best or to be killed by a “champion”. I agree with what was said before, go back to the style of the original one or like that of APOKOLYPTO- very little spoke. Focus on the characters and the fear of the unknown. Having Arnie or Glover do a cameo would be a dream, but we all know it’s a very long shot. But we have been here before; we hear of something that does bring us hope only to be dashed in Hollywood oblivion. So I will hold back my excitement until there is more information on the story and whose going to be in it. I do have my reservations on Roberto helming this, since he does have a ton on his plate and very little to show for them. But I do feel like he would do justice to it- IF he can stay true to the original one and just make it more real and little to no CG. Here’s hoping for the best on this one.
