From Dusk Till Dawn is coming to a Television near you next month, well, if you have The El Rey Network. It’s Robert Rodriguez‘s network, and he’s going to be filling it to the brim with blood and vampires and mayans. I can’t wait!
Here’s our first look at the Gecko Brothers originally played by Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney, who are now being interpreted by D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz. Thanks to BuzzFeed for the picture.
Rodriguez said he wanted to expand on the ideas of the first film, but didn’t have the time or the budget when the first film came out. Of course, there were two sequels to the film, but other than the third one, they don’t really do much to help the mythology of the first one.
- The film was short story, this is the novel
- Rodriguez said it will be a retelling of the first film, but expand on some of the elements only hinted at in the first film
- He wanted to make it comical but still have a lot of action.
- Tarantino’s script was funny in HIS way, but could get scary and evil at times
He expanded the film because of his interest in Mesoamerican culture, which was only hinted at
Finally, here’s the first trailer from the series. It’s fast, but it’s got a lot of the great elements from the movie.
Can’t wait to see it when it hits on March 11th. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series stars Don Johnson, Wilmer Valderrama, Robert Patrick, Adrianne Palicki, DJ Cotrona, Jake Busey, Lane Garrison and Zane Holtz.
