IESB today confirmed a previously reported story by Bloody-Disgusting, that Sin City director Robert Rodriguez will reboot the Predator franchise for Fox. The new film is titled Predators, and Rodriguez will apparently direct and produce the new project. He discussed Predators and other high-profile projects he’s developing at a news conference earlier today at Troublemaker Studios, where Texas state politicians were in attendance to sign HB 873, a long-awaited reform of the Texas film incentive program.

“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a reboot of the Predator series called Predators and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons,” Rodriguez told reporters.

What’s interesting, other than the fact that all of these projects are a fanboy’s wet dreams, is that Rodriguez’ involvement with the Sin City sequel was supposedly in limbo just yesterday, with news that the film rights to the series may have expired (SEE HERE).
