   For the next “Predator” movie, the franchise may be getting a taste of goulash along with its staple of blood and gore.
   According to Daily Variety, Hungarian-American film director Nimrod Antal, known for his 2007 movie, “Vacancy,” starring Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson, has been tapped by Fox to film the next film in the popular “Predator” franchise.
   The move follows the studio’s decision to bring director Robert Rodriguez on board to give the series a much needed makeover.
   In addition to Rodriguez, Antal will be working alongside screenwriters Alex Litvak and Michael Finch in overseeing the film.
   Besides slasher films such as “Vacancy,” Antal also directed the critically acclaimed “Kontroll” in his ancestral home of Hungary, which won him several awards, including the coveted Gold Hugo Award at the Chicago Film Festival.
   The Antal-helmed film will be the fifth in a string of “Predator” films dating back to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s appearance in the first film in 1987. Since then, the franchise has spawned several sequels, including “Predator 2,” starring Danny Glover, and the “Alien Vs. Predator” spin-off franchise.
   The film is expected to be released in 2010.
