I’m sure the headline caught your attention. IESB has officially confirmed Sin City director Robert Rodriguez as the the helmer for the future Predator reboot. Spread as a rumor a couple of months back, Rodriguez has expressed interest in remaking the sci-fi classic, putting his own twist to the film and renaming it Predators.
In a news conference at Troublemaker Studios, Rodriguez stated, “I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.”
Its great to hear he’s bringing Grindhouse’s Machete to the big screen (and hopefully not straight-to-DVD) and working on the Sin City sequel as well. When Predators will hit theaters? Don’t expect it anytime soon. If so, expect a different director to be attached to the project.
