Predators Update

One of the greatest movie monsters of all time is getting the Reboot treatment, as Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Desperado, Spy Kids) is producing and developing the new Predator film, PREDATORS.

Hired to helm the flick is rising director Nimrod Antal, who’s films do not properly reflect his name: the man has some intelligence with his work as he has proven succesfully with KONTROLL and ARMORED. Even Vacancy, though simplistic, wasn’t that bad. Mostly thanks to Luke Wilson, but the directing was solid.

However, I’m still not completely sold on this guy. With Rodriguez behind the scenes, at least we KNOW 100% it will be full of cool stuff–explosions, violence, and maturity (of at least the masculine variety).

However, its also the plot synopsis that I’m unsure of at this point. From the interview with Rodriguez himself:

I can’t go too much into the story right now, because we’re still writing. But 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). So like the original movie, the title does have a double meaning.
Aliens was a different take on the Alien idea, and an original movie in it’s own right, and that’s what we want to do with this.

  • What is with all of these Reboots recently? It is really starting to get out of hand.

    Anyway, this movie could be cool. And hey, the old ones will always be around even if it turns out to suck. So I am all for giving them a chance.
