It appears every horror flick from yesteryear is getting some form of TV-based revival and Robert Rodriguez's 'From Dusk Till Dawn' is no different. The filmmaker's English-language cable network El Rey is busy prepping a new series based on the 1996 action vampire flick along with Univision. And at least according to Production Weekly's latest tweet shooting on the project will kick off this Autumn/Fall. The full Twitter post went like this: "The TV adaptation of @Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino's FROM DUSK TILL DAWN for @Elreynetwork will begin filming in Austin mid-October." Hopefully we'll score some casting news and just exactly what its all about in the near future.
Here's how the original 1996 version of 'From Dusk Till Dawn' went:
"After a bank heist in Abilene with several casualties, the bank robber Seth Gecko and his psychopath and rapist brother Richard Gecko continue their crime spree in a convenience store in the middle of the desert while heading to Mexico with a hostage. They decide to stop for a while in a low-budget motel. Meanwhile the former minister Jacob Fuller is traveling on vacation with his son Scott and his daughter Kate in a RV. Jacob lost his faith after the death of his beloved wife in a car accident and quit his position of pastor of his community and stops for the night in the same motel Seth and Richard are lodged. When Seth sees the recreational vehicle, he abducts Jacob and his family to help his brother and him to cross the Mexico border, promising to release them on the next morning. They head to the truck drivers and bikers bar Titty Twister where Seth will meet with his partner Carlos in the dawn. When they are watching the dancer Santanico Pandemonium, Seth and Richard fight with three bodyguards. But soon they discover that the bar is a coven of vampires and they need to fight until dawn to leave the place alive."
