Safe to say, this ain't George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino.
Buzzfeed has provided the first look at Robert Rodriguez's "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV show. This is D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as Seth and Richie Gecko, sporting much different looks than we're familiar with from the 1996 film.
Here is what Rodriguez said about the TV series:
“We see things that led up to events in the film, and much deeper character motivations and storylines to sort of launch into the new story that we’re doing...The film was a short story. This is the novel version.”
Rodriguez also talked about expanding the Mesoamerican mythology that was only hinted at in the film.
“It is seeing something that you’ve never seen before, this Mesoamerican mythology of demon culture and these vampires that are not your traditional vampires… It’s a mix of this crime saga with these supernatural elements that will make this different from anything else on television.”
Also starring Jesse Garcia, Don Johnson, Robert Patrick, Jake Busey, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo and Eiza González. It will premiere on the El Rey network at some point this year.
