It seems that Robert Rodriguez may be set to revisit the world of From Dusk Till Dawn once more, with the filmmaker revealing to SFX Magazine during a promotional interview for his Netflix movie We Can Be Heroes that he’s looking to develop an animated series.
“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,” said Rodriguez, referring to the live-action From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. “So I went, ‘Oh, wow, I’d love to expand the story of Santánico Pandemonium, and the whole Aztec vampire lore for my network.’”
“So we did three seasons of [the live-action show],” Rodriguez continued. “And now we’re looking towards, we’re developing an animated Dusk Till Dawn. You’re the first person to hear that!”
Rodriguez then went on to confirm that the animated series won’t be a remake of the original 1996 film starring George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis and Salma Hayek, and will instead follow in follow in the footsteps of the live-action series by further exploring the world of Aztec vampires.
