There has been a lot of discussion going on about the upcoming reboot/remake/sequel of Predators (notice they added the “s” on the end… so we know it’s quality). A proverbial revolving door has been going on with the “who might direct it”, and a new name has emerged… Nimrod Antal.
For those of you who may not know (and that’s just about all of us), Nimrod Antal is the same man who directed Vacancy last year and directed the upcoming Matt Dillon flick Armored (which I actually think looks pretty solid).
The guys over at Latino Reviews give us this:
Robert Rodriguez is the producer on the PREDATORS movie so if negotiations just started, keep in mind like it has time after time this past year, “THAT PRODUCERS LIE”. My information comes from a super trusted source and Nimrod isn’t some name I pulled out of my ass.
Regardless of who ends up directing this flick, I’m still very apprehensive about it. I see it becoming nothing more than another AVP movie… just without the A. That’s a scary thought.
But who knows? Robert Rodriguez’s “Planet Terror” was the vastly superior half of “Gridhouse”, so maybe he’s got something cool in mind. I’ve got to wonder though…. why doesn’t Rodriguez just direct this himself?
