Update: Ellen Ripley and Newt featured in an alternate ending to The Predator

We’ve known for a while now that The Predator underwent major changes in the build up to its release, with much of the third act reworked during reshoots as a response to negative test screening feedback.

Now we have some details on what could have been, with visual effects artist Yuri Everson revealing on Instagram that three different endings were shot – one of which apparently featured a guest appearance by Alien heroine Ellen Ripley!

“We shot 3 different endings for The Predator, all variations of a “Predator Killer,”” writes Everson. “This unused ending was Predator Killer Ripley wearing the breather mask we created for the film. You can see her name tag there on her costume. [Stuntwoman] Breanna Watkins played Ripley under the mask instead of Sigourney Weaver.”
