Robert Rodriguez is back in business with Dimension Films and his next project will be the futuristic action thriller “Nerveracker,” which he is writing and directing.
Nerveracker is set in the year 2085 and centers on the character Joe Tezca, part of an elite unit who is sent in to stop a crime wave amongst a perfect futuristic society. In the process, he discovers that Nerverackers are on a rampage for control of the city. Tezca consequently sets forth on a mission to reveal the cover up by the ruling class and stop the Nerverackers before time runs out. Nerveracker is set for an April 16, 2010 release.
In the announcement from the Weinstein Company, Bob Weinstein said his relationship with Rodriguez started over 14 years ago with “From Dusk Till Dawn” Since then, the two have worked on a dozen films together. Rodriguez has been an integral part of Dimension’s growth and success.
Bob and Harvey Weinstein have previously released several of Rodriguez’s films through Dimension and Miramax, including “Grindhouse,” “Sin City,” the Spy Kids franchise, “Four Rooms,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Faculty,” “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” and “The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl.”
“Nerveracker” apparently leap-frogs to the top of Rodriguez’ to-do list. Various reports and rumors also have him involved in “Sin City 2,” a new “Red Sonja” flick and a remake of “Barbarella.”
