Busy FX shop takes off with new film

Shooting is just around the corner for Predators, the latest entry in 20th Century Fox’s creature saga.

Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) is behind the camera this time, working from a script by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch. But when production begins late next month down at Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas – who will be realizing the Predators this time around? Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger’s KNB FX. This is the first time the shop has tackled the otherworldly hunters, however, individually, Nicotero worked on the ’87 film, as did Berger and KNB’s Shannon Shea.

“It is going to be KILLER,” Nicotero told me earlier this afternoon when I inquired about Predators. Of course, KNB and Robert Rodriguez – who is producing the latest film – have had a long history together collaborating on From Dusk Till Dawn and Sin City, to name two titles.

KNB is currently at work on Priest for Screen Gems as well.
