Nimrod Antal Speaks Out About PredatorsGoon
Robert Rodriguez's name has been all over the place when we talk about Predators but the man behind the camera will be Nimrod Antal. While he was out promoting his third film Armored ComingSoon caught up with him and asked him a couple questions about how Predators was going to play out.
"I think we both recognize that the original film was as good as it was because of the practical FX, because it was a guy in a suit, because it was the jungle, so we stay true to that. We were in Hawaii for a month in the jungle, so there's going to be some pretty impressive locations."
Then he goes on to explain the casting of Adrian Brody which whether you like it or not makes a lot of sense, "I think when we cast Adrian, there were a lot of people going, 'What?' but at the same time, if we cast a Vin Diesel in that role or if we cast anyone who is Arnold-esque, we would have been attacked for doing that. So we decided early on to go in a very different direction as far as the casting process, but it turned out fantastic. He plays a mercenary in the film and if you look at the guys in Iraq and Afghanistan today, they're not 'yolked-out' Schwarzenegger-looking guys. They're all very wiry and thin guys, and I think it's going to play well."
At the end of the interview he teased slightly that there may be a possiblity that Arnold Schwarzenegger may have some kind of appearence. Of course we got a lot of that hype with Terminator Salvation as well. So in the end who knows about that.
