Robert Rodriguez on From Dusk Till Dawn Animated Series
In a recent interview with with SFX Magazine, Robert Rodriguez revealed that a From Dusk Till Dawn animated series is in the works. He stated:
“Over here, I have my own television network [El Rey]. So I had a television network here. And I needed to create programming, so Quentin [Tarantino] and I still control the rights to it. So I went, ‘Oh, wow, I’d love to expand the story of Santánico Pandemonium, and the whole Aztec vampire lore for my network.
“And then internationally it was just put out as a Netflix original, I think is probably how you saw it. But here it was an original series for my television network, action television network called El Rey, which is, you know, the place they’re trying to get to at the end of From Dusk till Dawn so it fits perfectly [laughs]. That was originally why we did it, so we did three seasons of that.
“And now we’re looking towards, we’re developing an animated From Dusk till Dawn. You’re the first person to hear that!”
He also explained that it won’t be an animated remake of the movie, as this series “will follow in the footsteps of the live-action show and further explore the world of Aztec vampires.”
From Dusk Till Dawn was released in 1996 and is considered by many to be a cult classic. The story follows two criminals and their hostages, who unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results. It was directed by Robert Rodriguez and stars: George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, and Salma Hayek.
From Dusk Till Dawn also spawned a 30-episode series, which was also created by Robert Rodriguez and aired from 2014-2016 on Rodriguez’s television network, El Rey, and later became an international Netflix original.
