Predators director might be...

Take this strictly as rumor right now. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Robert Rodriguez has chosen a director for his PREDATORS flick, one Neil Marshall. Marshall, I'm sure you'll recall, is the nutty Englishman behind DOG SOLDIERS, THE DESCENT, and DOOMSDAY. While nothing is official yet, the site claims Marshall is close to signing on to the movie.

This makes sense because Marshall is a director with a sense of old-school fun, and he also has a pretty good track record with the fanboys. But... for whatever reason, this isn't making me any more excited about the picture. It's just not something I have a great deal of anticipation for, even though both Rodriguez and Marshall have entertained me greatly at different times.

I guess, for me, this is truly a "wait and see" proposition. What do you guys think?

Extra Tidbit: DOOMSDAY is a helluva lot of fun. (So is Rhona Mitra.)

If this is actually a new Predator film then it may be alright. I hope it's not a remake though. The original isn't dated at all and doesn't need remaking.

I really enjoyed Marshall's D trilogy although was somewhat underwhelmed by Doomsday. I think he'll do an awesome job and knows how to mix real make-up effects and film, not green screen crap. I'm sorry am I the only person that likes predator 2. It rocked balls!

I don't know, there's something about it that rubs me the wrong way for some reason... I don't like the idea of them shooting in Austin in a studio either. Not that that is official, but we know how Rodriguez rolls...

noice. i dug dog soldiers and the descent, not so much doomsday, but this seems like a good matchup. hell, if this film is titled predators, then i think its safe to assume that means a handful of predators are gonna fuck shit up. this guy showed us he can make the premise of a squad of soldiers up against a group of monsters entertaining in dog soldiers, and that was on a shoestring budget. so im game.

I'M PUMPED!

Lets see Rodriguez producing, Marshall directing, a new Predator movie with NO Aliens in it... yup...I'm fucking stoked! I hope this Marshall thing happens, he'd knock it out of the park!

I don't get it...

I have been to various sites, and people seem to be displeased with this upcoming film? Why? It's NOT a remake or a reboot, so what gives? It's a Predator 3 that we've all been clamoring for for years. Predator 2 was mostly shit, so it's not like this could get any worse than that. Make up your mind people.
