Rodriguez looks ahead to futuristic thriller

By: JaysQ

Not long ago word started to break on the web about a mysterious Robert Rodriguez project called "Nerverackers" set up at Dimension with an announced release date of April 16, 2010. Since then alot of speculation has gone about Rodriguez's actual involvment until recently when
Variety confirmed that he will write and direct.

The story centers on "a character named Joe Tezca who is part of an elite unit dispatched to quell a crime wave in a theoretically perfect future society" in the year 2085.

This seems perfect for the filmmaker who is often lauded for his technical training and ability to put together amazing special effects on a shoestring budget. Unfortunately it also probably means that we won't see Sin City 2, the Predator reboot, a Machete spin-off or any of the other things that he's been attached to in recent years anytime soon.

Still it is hard to not get excited about a Rodriguez film of this nature. An effects driven, sci-fi thriller seems right up his alley and it will be interesting to see how it develops.
