Predator – he’s back and he’s bummed

November 30, 2009 Leave a comment
It seems the Predator franchise is about to be resurrected with another sequel to be released towards the middle of next year. At the helm of the project is Antal Nimród. We’ll forgive those of you who don’t know who he is, seeing as he is quite new on the scene. If you’re keen to see his work you can watch his latest film – Armored – which should be coming to cinema’s soon. His other films include Vacancy and Kontroll – for which he is best known and has won numerous awards.
Getting back to the film – not a whole lot has been revealed at this point. What we do know is that Robert Rodriguez will be producing the project. As far as I know he has also been involved in the screenplay and was responsible for bringing Antal on as director. The lead role will be played by Adrien Brody… that’s right, the skinny guy from The Pianist, King Kong and The Brothers Bloom. Apparently, and I quote Antal directly, “…if you look at the guys in Iraq and Afghanistan today, they’re not ‘yolked- out’ Schwarzenegger-looking guys. They’re all very wiry and thin guys, and I think it’s going to play well.” Well I’ll admit it should be pretty interesting. The guys got a big nose, let’s hope he’s got the balls to match. After all, he is going to be facing a group of Predators in this film. Arnie could only take down one… enough said.
At this point the name of the film hasn’t been finalised. Some are calling it “Robert Rondriguez’s Predators”. Rondriguez himself has said that he wants to call it “Predators” in the same way that the second film in Alien franchise was called Aliens.
That’s all for now.
