‘Predator’ Screenwriters Latest to Sue in Effort to Recapture Rights

Friday the 13th kicked open the door and several other major franchises have been in flux thanks to an opening that allows the film’s original screenwriters to exploit copyright law’s termination provision.

The latest to enter the fray is that of the original Predator, with The Hollywood Reporter writing, “Jim and John Thomas, the brothers who wrote the 1987 action film, have filed a lawsuit seeking confirmation of successfully recapturing rights to the franchise. In California federal court, the two say that Disney — which now owns 20th Century Fox  — is standing in the way.”
