1989 was the last time people got to watch The Equalizer on their TV screens, and while it.s taken a while for this film version to become a reality, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington are finally putting it together, and it has some potential to be an interesting flick. But Washington is usually only as powerful as his opposing force. That force has been met, and his name is Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The New Zealander has been in tons of popular films over the past decade or so, though he.s usually kept to more generic roles. He.s currently filming Marc Webb.s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and has both Darren Aronofsky.s Noah and Robert Rodriguez.s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For coming to theaters before Spider-Man.

There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, but there are going to be two movies about "The ABCs of Death." A sequel to the creepy anthology is on the way, and filmmakers are promising a leaner and meaner set of horrors. You remember how this works: each director creates a short based on a theme related to a letter of the alphabet, and of course, death. Alex de la Iglesia ("The Last Circus"), Rodney Ascher ("Room 237"), and Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton have already signed on to direct, plus there will be another competition to find the 26th filmmaker. The sequel is planned for a 2014 release, so you have plenty of time to break out your camera and get to work.

It looks like the bloodsuckers of True Blood and The Vampire Diaries will be getting some competition on the small screen. We've already seen the first trailer for NBC's upcoming 10-part Dracula 'retelling' earlier this week, and now Deadline has revealed that Robert Rodriguez's El Ray Network is to partner up with Univision Networks for a TV series based upon From Dusk Till Dawn.
Directed by Rodriguez from a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino, From Dusk Till Dawn was released in 1996 and starred George Clooney and Tarantino as two outlaw brothers who kidnap a family (Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Ernest Liu) en route to Mexico, where they happen upon a bunch of bloodthirsty vampires at a remote brothel called the Titty Twister. The film also featured Salma Hayek, Cheech Marin, Tom Savini, Danny Trejo and Michael Parks, and went on to spawn two direct-to-video follow-ups, From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money »

As the Cannes Film Festival gets underway today, IMDb has released its list of the 10 most popular films to have been screened in competition for the Palme d'Or, based on user votes. Unsurprisingly, Quentin Tarantino makes a good showing on the list, dominating in the top three spots with 1994's "Pulp Fiction" 2009's "Inglourious Basterds" and 2005's "Sin City" (for which he's credited as "special guest director" following Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez). Since this is a popularity vote, "Shrek" lands a spot above "Taxi Driver."Top 10 Most Popular Cannes Films1. Pulp Fiction (dir. Quentin Tarantino, 1994)2. Inglourious Basterds (dir.

Director Robert Rodriguez (Machete Kills, Sin City 2) has established a cable network called El Rey while Univision has partnered up with the filmmaker to develop a television series based on his 1996 cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn. The original From Dusk Till Dawn starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino (who also scripted the film) as two brothers on the run that end up taking a family hostage with plans to sneak into Mexico. Once they get over the border, they wind up at a bar called the Titty Twister and everything goes to hell once they realize the establishment is run by vampires. Two direct to video sequels were spawned from the movie with one starring Robert Patrick (Gangster Squad, True Blood). Robert Rodriguez' new cable network El Rey, will make it's debut later this »

'The El Rey Network is going to be the home of kick-ass entertainment'. Not my words but the words of talented filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. El Ray is the name of his new English-language cable network which will be debuting later this year on Comcast. And it appears that a franchise which has been away from our screens for some time will be making a reappearance in a TV format. 'From Dusk Till Dawn', the action horror flick directed by Rodriguez back in 1996 and co-penned by buddy Quentin Tarantino, is set to emerge onto our small screens as a new series set to premiere on the new network. The movie, which starred George Clooney and Tarantino as the Gecko brothers fighting against viscious South of the Border vamps, spawned two less successful sequels back in 1999. »
Another tv spin-off on the way, this time it's a show based on Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's From Dusk Till Dawn -- although the series will seemingly drop the "From". If you haven't seen the original movie, it's a sporadically successful mix of crime thriller and horror flick, featuring a pretty unforgettable dance-cum-bloodbath scene with Salma Hayek. It spawned various comic books and a couple of straight to DVD sequels. Below is the press release from Univision, which also reveals that the network will produce an unnamed show developed by producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's K/O Paper Products. Univision Communications Inc. announced today plans for the El Rey Network, a new general entertainment, English-language cable network geared towards young-adult audiences and created by renowned American filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and FactoryMade Ventures.

Spanish-language network Univision have announced that they intend to bring From Dusk Till Dawn back…as a TV show. The network, which is aimed primarily at Latin Americans, have teamed up with Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network to revive the vampire romp.
This won’t be the first spin-off for Rodriguez’s cons-on-the-run caper. The original 1996 film, scripted by Quentin Tarantino, spawned two straight-to-video sequels. From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money and From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman’s Daughter were mediocre successes critically and financially.
Little else was revealed about the direction the series might take or who is being circled to star. The original film starred George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Quentin Tarantino and Juliette Lewis. Desperate to get over the border into Mexico, Clooney and Tarantino’s criminal brothers, Seth and Richard Gecko, hijack and hide in Keitel’s family Rv. Once over the border, »
