Complications with the star arose quickly. On the first day of filming it became apparent that, despite their best efforts, the production team had not properly accounted for all of the factors necessary to bring the Elder Predator to life. From the cinematography down to the actor’s performance, it was clear the production had bitten off more than it could chew.
Much time was spent during pre-production working out exactly how to bring to life the film’s ostensible hero, the Elder Predator. Early concepts revolved around using the same method as used for the human cast — originally paper masks tied on with string, then later match-moved photographic cut-outs. A McFarlane Predator figure, either the original or “City Hunter” models, would then be used for wide-shots.
