Nimrod on Predators

07.02.2009

There's been a short list of names swirling about the internets as potential directors for PREDATORS, including Neil Marshall and Marcus Nispel. But as we heard last week, Hungarian helmer Nimrod Antal was the one who seemingly was at the top.

AICN got in touch with Austin neighbor and chum Robert Rodriguez, who's producing the project, and verified that Antal is indeed the man now in charge of the skull-collecting extraterrestrials. RR says Antal is "an outstanding presence, a great communicator full of ideas, and upon meeting him you can immediately understand how he is able to wrangle cast and crew and get the best out of everyone."

Rodriguez says it''ll be a "character driven action movie" and while the script is still being written (which seems dicey considering the release date is a year from this weekend), he gives a taste of the story: "it still involves a very intense group of people stranded on a Predator planet discovering unspeakable horrors (that are not always from outside their group)." Read what else the prolific behatted multitasker has to say on the topic RIGHT HERE.

Nimrod's films so far are the Screen Gems horror flick VACANCY and his excellent debut KONTROLL, a comedy-thriller set entirely in the Budapest subway system. His heist thriller ARMORED (which supposedly secured his place in the PREDATORS chair) has been kicked around the schedule but is due later this year.

I really want this to be good, but it sounds like it could go either way. Why can't Rodriquez direct?

Antal should be great for a character-driven movie. Problem is I don't recall at least the first Predator being the least bit character-based. Alien, yes, Predator, no.

Works For Me

Saw the trailer for ARMORED last week. Looks like a hellalotta fun so this could be some good on the director's front although it would've been no less than awesome with Neil Marshall at the helm.

As long as it's a sequel...

...then I don't really care who directs it. If it's on the Predator homeworld that makes me think it has to be a sequel though, so here's hoping!

The Gelgamek vagina is three feet wide and filled with razor-sharp teeth! Do you really expect us to have sex with that?!"

I'm down for pretty much anything involving Predators, Aliens or any mix of the two.

"You think Predator chicks have the same kind of vicious business below the belt that they have in their jaws?"
OUCH! Way to give me nightmares.
