Nimrod on Predators

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)."

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.
