Robert Rodriguez on Returning to From Dusk Till Dawn

March 3, 2014


From Dusk Till Dawn Series posterIn the late-'90s, two hot names in independent cinema - Quentin Tarantino, fresh off of Pulp Fiction, and Robert Rodriguez of El Mariachi and Desperado - teamed up for the unconventional '96 horror film From Dusk Till Dawn. One part story of two thieves on the lam (played by George Clooney and Tarantino) and one part balls-to-the-wall vampire film, From Dusk Till Dawn, as a property, proved it had legs. Perhaps it was the story's cunning thieves, Seth and Richie Gecko, or perhaps it was the unapologetic and grotesque portrayal of the vampires (they sure ain't pretty). Whatever the case may be, it spawned two sequels, a comic book adaptation and a video game.

You can now add "television show" to that list.

In today's climate of spin-off shows based on feature film properties, From Dusk Till Dawn doesn't seem like an obvious choice as the original film took place...from dusk till dawn. Rodriguez - who spearheaded the series which will be housed at Rodriguez's El Rey Network - aims to open up that vampire-populated canvas even further with the show, promising new characters as well as a few familiar ones.

ShockTillYouDrop.com spoke with Rodriguez about what we can expect, Tarantino's thoughts on the series and how From Dusk Till Dawn will evolve on the small screen.
