Neil Marshall is one of seven directors in the running for Predators

The news yesterday was that Neil Marshall was in talks to direct Predators produced by Robert Rodriguez. Today AICN have found out that Neil Marshall is one of about 7 names that Robert is looking at and meeting with right now.

They contacted Robert about this story and his update was that he's looking at various works by the guys in the running, and he'll be seeing Neil's Centurion very soon, but at this point, Neil and the other candidates are collectively holding their breaths to see who comes out the other end.

Robert doesn't want the list of names out there at this point, but like so many rumors hitting the net at this juncture - it seems a lot of folks that hear something and leap to report before there is really anything solid.

Neil's talks are the same as all the others. He has met with Robert. Robert did like him. Robert is looking forward to seeing Centurion. But he has similar feelings about the other candidates.

Who could the other 6 directors be?

I'd like to see Verhoeven direct it, but using his Robocop sensibilities.

Who else? Wes Anderson just to see what he would do with a sci-fi action film.

James Cameron would be brilliant as he is the king of the sequel with the S on the end. I love Aliens.

Maybe David Fincher just for the style he would bring to it.

I would love someone with David Lean's vision to give us an epic film.
