Do you remember Robert Rodriguez's 1992 film, El Mariachi?

Well, according to NBC Latino, Sony TV is planning on developing a new series based on the popular movie but Rodriguez will not be involved.

Sony TV executives “reached out to Rodriguez only once to say that they were ‘thinking’” about adapting the filmmaker’s El Mariachi for television, reports Deadline.

The new series will be produced in Mexico and will feature the “country’s best talent." In staying true to the film, the TV series will be in Spanish and revolve around the adventures of a musician who escapes the deadly reach of a notorious drug cartel.
