Nimrod Antal Talks “Predators” Reboot

Those underwhelmed by the “Alien vs. Predator” films should be in for a “very pleasant surprise” says director Nimrod Antal about the upcoming franchise reboot “Predators”.

Talking with Coming Soon, Antal says that despite Robert Rodriguez’s penchant for computer animation they both recognised that the practical ‘guy in a suit’ works much better for the subject.

A month of shooting took place in jungles on the Hawaiian Islands and Antal says “we are trying to stay with the original as far as the monster and the atmosphere and the tone of the film, but we are trying to do something new and contemporary and feels fresh”.

Just as importantly is that the film is being shot as an R-rated feature. For the full interview, which goes into a lot of detail about Robert Rodriguez’s involvement, can be read here.
