“Predators” is going to start its production soon. Production Weekly, via its Twitter page, has informed that the new extraterrestrial thriller film will begin shooting in late September. The publication additionally mentioned that its principal photography will take place at producer Robert Rodriguez’s studio in Austin, Texas.
“Nimrod Antal is scheduled to being filming on Fox’s reboot of ‘Predators,’ on Sept 28th at Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin,” read the statement on the Twitter page. The sci-fi movie will be directed by Antal whose first American film was Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson’s “Vacancy”, while Robert Rodriguez will serve as the producer.
Plan of making the reboot of the “Predator” series was first confirmed by Rodriguez in April. Soon after, it was announced that 20th Century Fox planned to release the reboot on July 7, 2010. So far, the studio has not named any actors/actress for the cast ensemble, though Rodriguez previously has expressed his interest of having the original film’s star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in this new movie.
Written by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch, “Predators” is said to offer “a bold new chapter in the Predator universe”. The story allegedly will deal with a very intense group of people stranded on a Predator planet discovering unspeakable horrors that are not always from outside their group.
