    Robert Rodriguez's 'From Dusk Till Dawn' Is Going To Be A TV Show Now

    You would think with two movies coming this year -- "Machete Kills" and "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" -- that would be more than enough on Robert Rodriguez's plate. But that would be to misunderstand the work ethic of the filmmaker, who always seems to be juggling a half dozen different things at a...

    Exclusive: Ray Liotta, Juno Temple & Jeremy Piven Join Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

    2013 could prove to be the year of Robert Rodriguez. The prolific filmmaker has always been uber-productive, but this year, we'll get a double dose: he'll have two films hit theaters a month apart of each other.

    William Sadler Joins 'Machete Kills,' Avellan Twins To Return Too

    Even if you’re not a fan of Robert Rodriguez’s footloose and fancy-free style of maverick filmmaking, you have to respect the fact that he certainly knows how to round up an impressive cast with each passing project. While he usually peppers films from “Spy Kids” to “Sin City” and beyond with deligh...

    Charlie Sheen Will Be The President Of The United States In 'Machete Kills'

    Although “Machete” wasn’t a runaway success at the box-office ($44m worldwide), critically it was met with cautiously optimistic reviews, it didn't cost all that much, and it seems that was enough for Robert Rodriguez to plough ahead with a sequel. You know, because he can. The...
