Fox taps director for horror pic

Fox has tapped Nimrod Antal (“Vacancy”) to direct “Predators” for Robert Rodriguez, who will produce through his Troublemaker Studios.

The project’s scheduled for a July 7, 2010 release. It represents the fifth iteration of the franchise after the original “Predator,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, in 1987, “Predator 2” (1990); “Alien vs. Predator” (2004); and “Alien vs. Predator: Requiem” (2007).

Alex Litvak and Michael Finch are scripting “Predators.”

Fox announced in April that Rodriguez had come aboard to reboot the “Predator” franchise and that he’s co-directing “Machete” with Ethan Maniquis.

Antal co-wrote and directed the 2004 Hungarian drama “Kontroll,” set in the Budapest subway system and shown at Cannes. He also helmed Screen Gems heist drama “Armored,” set for release later this year.
