Disney to Reboot "The Rocketeer" With Black Female Lead
The Gecko brothers are back in the first full-length trailer for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, based on Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 horror film.
In the El Rey Network’s version, however, D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz step into the roles originated by George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, that of bank-robbing siblings Seth and Richie, who take hostage a minister and his family in hopes of evading authorities by slipping over the border into Mexico. But it’s not until they swing by a certain strip club that the situation turns really bad.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on the thrill-ride film, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber, Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist left several people dead. While on an escape route to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family who they take hostage. Using the family RV to make a run for the Mexican border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is unknowingly populated by vampires, and forces them to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires.
From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series premieres March 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on El Rey.
