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. READ MORE
“Next Halloween, Hell Comes Knocking.”
Maverick indie director Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, Pontypool) started principal photography last week on the Halloween horror thriller Hellions.

Also starring are Rossif Sutherland (Reign), Luke Bilyk (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”), and Rachel Wilson (Republic of Doyle).

“X-Files” and Terminator 2‘s Robert Patrick has signed on a series regular on HBO’s vampire drama “True Blood,” playing Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father, says Deadline.
Patrick first introduced the character on the hit HBO drama in the most recent fifth season where he did a three-episode arc, appearing in the three of the last four episodes of the season. He was tapped for the recurring gig in June, after his pilot “Last Resort” had been picked up to series by ABC. While the broadcast network stopped short of a formal cancellation of “Last Resort,” and the cast of the show are still under deals at Sony Pictures TV, they state that Patrick is being released so he can join “True Blood.”
On the big screen Patrick will next be seen in Warner Bros’ Gangster Squad, Universal’s Identity Thief, and indie Lovelace, which is premiering at next month’s Sundance Film Festival.
