Nimrod Antal to direct ‘Predators’

Project scheduled for 2010 release

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

The project’s scheduled for a July 7, 2010, release. It represents the fifth iteration of the franchise, which dates back to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Predator” in 1987, followed by “Predator 2” in 1990, “Alien Vs. Predator” in 2004 and “Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem” in 2007.

Alex Litvak and Michael Finch are scripting “Predators.”

Fox announced in April that Rodriguez had come on board to re-boot the “Predator” franchise along with 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 heist drama “Armored” for Screen Gems, set for release later this year.
