Robert Rodriguez has told Buzzfeed that he is adapting From Dusk Till Dawn into a tv series that will premiere on his own El Rey Network. He tells Buzzfeed:
“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,” Rodriguez told BuzzFeed. “The film was a short story. This is the novel version.” “What’s fantastic about that is that the bar is already set so high, so you go in saying, ‘We will not settle for anything less than amazing casting, because people will have that expectation,’” Rodriguez said. “And they’re gonna make the comparison. It’s a terrific challenge, but we found fantastic people. I couldn’t be happier with the cast.”
Rodriquez goes on to explain that the series will be set up as a “crime saga with these supernatural elements” . This is incredibly exciting, can’t wait to see a trailer!
From Dusk Till Dawn: The TV Series is set to premiere early this year.
