Neil Marshall Close To Signing On For ‘Predators’?
  |  @   |  

Bloody-Disgusting has it on very good authority that a one Neil Marshall is close to signing on to direct Predators, another new horror reboot being produced by Robert Rodriguez and his Troublemaker Studios (Read: Robert Rodriguez To Direct “˜Predator’ Reboot; Confirms Himself For “˜Sin City 2″²).

The movie is expected to be similar to the original Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but with some changes and what’s certain to be a whole new look. One big change is that it appears that many Predators will be in the film instead of just one based on the brief description: “”¦a team of commandos face down a mysterious race of vicious monsters.”

Neil Marshall is best known for his cave-dwelling horror The Descent and the post-apocalyptic Doomsday. Fittingly, the main concern with this reboot will be how much CGI is going to be used — if The Descent is any basis for comparison, then fans will be happy to know that Marshall can put together some creepy beasties without all that cheap computer animation. No CGI in this reboot would be its possible saving grace…that, of course, and the faithful R-rating that is essential to Predator movies. Thankfully, if this rumor comes true, there’s a strong chance for both of these elements being handled properly and that we may have a fun little reboot on-hand.

Keep it fresh in mind, this is not yet confirmed and Marshall hasn’t yet signed, but B-D is usually fed some solid information, so I’m willing to bank on it. Don’t forget: Bloody-Disgusting actually received the rumor that Rodriguez was producing a Predator reboot all the way back in January, so their source is well-informed.
