One Director for the Alien, and Another for the PredatorIGN FilmForce seems to have the inside track on who'll be directing the sequel. Both directors, actually.
From IGNFF: "Our scooper points out that the Wikipedia entry for special effects artists-turned-directors Greg and Colin Strause, a.k.a. the Brothers Strause, claims that the siblings "have recently been mentioned as the possible feature film directors for "Alien vs. Predator 2." The sequel to 2004's "Alien vs. Predator" is set to be released in August 2007."
IGN's tipster advised us that the Brothers Strause "are set to direct AvP2," adding, "They've met with the producers and set to sign on this week."
As of June 1st, the Brothers Strause's official site coyly announced that "something big is brewing."
In addition to their award-winning work as music video and commercial directors, the Brothers Strause also run Hydraulx, which has provided special effects work for such Fox films as "X-Men: The Last Stand," "Fantastic Four" and "The Day After Tomorrow."
