Director Robert Rodriguez tweeted Tuesday from the set of El Rey Network’s now-filming Austin, TX set of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” featuring the star Robert Patrick!
D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) play the notorious Gecko brothers from the cult-classic film of the same name, and Eiza González (Lola: Érase Una Vez) recreates the role of Santánico Pandemonium, credited for launching Salma Hayek’s film career.
“Based on the thrill-ride film, the supernatural crime saga is centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist leaves several people dead.”
The series, created and executive produced by network Founder and Chairman, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, will premiere on El Rey Network, Tuesday, March 11th at 9pm ET/PT.
