Director Robert Rodriguez, the one-man film studio, has been talking about his upcoming TV series adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn. The 1996 film, Rodriguez’s second feature directing project after Desperado, was written by his friend Quentin Tarantino. After a few direct-to-video sequels, Rodriguez is now preparing to launch the series on his own digital network.
Ever a rebel, with “do-it-yourself” prowess, Rodriguez likes to write, shoot, direct, and produce his own projects. He’s even built his own film facilities in Texas, called Troublemaker Studios and Troublemaker Sound. While everyone else, when it comes to digital distribution, is rushing to Netflix with offers, the auteur is sticking with his guns to debut the series on the El Rey Network.
For some information on the network, here’s a video of how it came to be.
Also, last week, he revealed a nice little easter egg that’s sure to please Tarantino fans. »

The "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV series has a lot of things going for it, whether or not you're a fan of the premise. It's got director Robert Rodruigez very involved, Don Johnson reprising his role as Earl McGraw and a strong cast including DJ Cotrona, Wilder Valderama and Robert Patrick. Now has one more exciting element to sweeten the deal as well.
Texas Monthly (via /Film) first noticed that a structure very familiar to fans of Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" had popped up in Austin, Texas: a real-life Big Kahuna Burger. Rodriguez answered the question about the building's presence himself on Twitter.
"'That's one tasty burger.' #FromDuskTillDawn only on the @Elreynetwork," he posts.
So that means there's at least one connection to the world of Tarantino's movies in the "From Dusk Till Dawn" series. That shouldn't come as a surprise to fans, though. The way that Tarantino's »
TVLine has learned that the Saturday Night Live alum will guest-star in a spring episode of NBC’s cult comedy (returning Thursday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c), playing the eccentric founder of Gcc.

Us actor Paul Walker tragically passed away yesterday (November 30), aged 40, after he was involved in a fatal car collision.
With a career spanning almost 30 years, the actor achieved success in modelling, TV and film and was known worldwide for his role as Brian O'Conner in the Fast & Furious franchise.
Digital Spy pays tribute to the late star, as we name five of Walker's most memorable movie roles.
Walker's best known role was undoubtedly that of police officer Brian O'Conner in the Fast & Furious franchise. The actor was propelled to worldwide prominence when he appeared as the undercover agent in 2001's The Fast and The Furious - which grossed over $200 million on a $38 million budget - before reprising the role in all but one of the five sequels.
At the time of his death, Walker was working on the seventh instalment of the series, Fast & Furious »
Does the name Bruce McDonald ring a bell? It should, Bruce directed Pontypool a flick that this particular horror fan likes one whole hell of a lot. Turns out he’s been working on a new project, something titled Hellions and today brought the first look via the first official still from the project.
The film looks like a bloodbath..get it, get it….!

Even though we're one month removed from that magical time of year, Halloween is still very much on our minds here at Dread Central. That being said, this first image from Bruce McDonald's Hellions should get you back in the spirit of things.
In the movie Robert Patrick plays Corman, a hardened cop who winds up protecting a teenager (Chloe Rose) on All Hallows' Eve. If Bruce McDonald sounds familiar, it's because he's the twisted genius behind Pontypool, which means Hellions is already a must see.

Bruce McDonald recently wrapped up filming Hellions and the first official photo from the movie has been released. The indie director is probably best known by horror fans for Pontypool and he returns to the genre with a Halloween-themed story:
“A pregnant teen must survive a Halloween night from Hell when three malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking.”
“In the script it’s a red moon, kind of a spooky supernatural night. Halloween night. So there were two elements in the script that triggered us to this. The red moon and the fact that time moves very strangely.
We thought we could shoot this all night with some kind of red filter but then we thought because of the time factor maybe »

When Blake's 7 star Gareth Thomas decided to depart the BBC sci-fi drama back in 1979, the show's producers were faced with the difficult task of producing a third series without their title character. Rather than replace Blake outright, they decided to have Paul Darrow's wily »
Usually when a movie sequel begins filming, it.s because the predecessor has already been released, and either audiences or studios are clamoring for another trip to that cinematic universe. But that.s just not the case for Matthew Gratzner.s indie western Hot Bath an. a Stiff Drink, which already has a follow-up in production despite not having been released yet. Not only that, but its cast just got a little bigger, as Frankie Muniz, Alison Eastwood and genre everyman Robert Patrick have all signed on. Not additions that make you want to run out and sell your children to watch it, but it.s a step up from the first film.s lesser-known actors. Variety has no plot description for the film besides a setting in the 1890s, and one has to wonder where the story can go. The first film starred Jeffrey Patterson as a U.S. »

Last week I found myself driving through the countryside outside Hamilton, Ontario, where I eventually rolled up to a small working farm populated by very small horses, regular sized horses, and ten or so llamas who were not even remotely interested in my presence. Well fine, llamas, I wasn't there for you anyway.The point of the drive was inside the house where iconic Canadian director Bruce McDonald was making his return to the horror genre, his first foray into this territory since Pontypool. Working with a nimble crew and just a pair of cast members on this particular day - leading lady Chloe Rose and genre staple Robert Patrick - McDonald et al were in the home stretch of production on the upcoming Hellions. Here's...
