Rodriguez Rodriguez's El Rey network has announced three more have joined the cast, including G.I. JOE RETALIATION star and one-time Wonder Woman Adriana Palicki (bet she grits her teeth anytime Gal Gadot gets mentioned). Palicki will play Vanessa Styles, a new character created for the show, a woman with past ties with Seth Gecko (Clooney in the original, D.J. Cotrona now).
Other cast members now confirmed include THE HITCHER II: I’VE BEEN WAITING star Jake Busey (son of legendary mental Gary) as Aiden Tanner, a professor on the trail of the vampires; and Lane Garrison (PRISON BREAK), who will play Pete, of Benny’s World of Liquor. Will he live longer than ten minutes before getting shot in the mush this go-around? We'll find out soon.
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 the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his children, Kate (Madison Davenport) & Scott (Brandon Soo Hoo), whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the Border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires, including the legendary Santánico Pandemonium Eiza González. They are forced 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 creatures inside the club.
We’ll have more information on FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES (including when us lot in the UK can see it) in future updates...
