Nimrod Antal talks Predators

AVP-haters promised "pleasant surprise"


The man in charge of Robert Rodriguez’ keenly-anticipated Predator reboot has spoken from the set, revealing some details that’ll surely have fanboys salivating.

Currently shooting in Hawaii, Antal promises that those who were disappointed by the AVP travesties will be in for “a very pleasant surprise”.

When quizzed on the amount of CGI in Predators, Antal reassuringly references the love that he and Rodriguez have for practical effects in the first movie.

He promises: “the original film was as good as it was because of the practical, because it was a guy in a suit, because it was the jungle, so we stay true to that”.

The cast doesn’t have any hulking Arnie clones (though Rodriguez regular Danny Trejo provides the toughness), and leftfield leading men Adrien Brody and Topher Grace reflect a new vision for the franchise.

Antal claims: “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”.

While Antal has yet to prove himself as a director (he directed Kate Beckinsale thriller Vacancy), he certainly seems to be heading in the right direction.

So can Antal atone for AVP? Or would you still rather see the franchise left well alone? Share your thoughts below!

      mind you the thought of topher grace having his intestines pulled out of his mouth does actually sound like something I'd very much enjoy seeing. Any chance of casting that feckless idiot that demi moore is knobing to have his head lopped off as well?

      Does this guy exist? Is it just another Rodriguez joke? Nimrod Antal is an anagram for Random Latin.
