The original From Dusk Till Dawn film, is still one of my favorite vampire movies of all time. You don’t know where things are going to go when the movie starts out, but where they end up makes it so bloody awesome that it will forever remain a cult classic.
Writer/Director Robert Rodriguez has always had bigger plans for the Gecko Brothers and The Fullers, and he’s getting his chance to expand on the mythology he created in the film when the From Dusk Till Dawn television series premieres on his El Rey Network.
Today, we get our first look at Madison Davenport (The Possession), who will be taking over the role of Juliette Lewis’s character from the film. Take a look below!
Here’s the full synopsis:
[box_light]Based on the thrill-ride film, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on an escape route to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family who they take hostage. Using the family RV to make a run for the Mexican border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is unknowingly populated by vampires, and forces them to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.[/box_light]
