There are certain movies we just can't enough of. We watch them over and over and over again, constantly wishing we had a sequel...or maybe even an entire TV series.
Robert Rodriguez heard the cries for a sequel to the cult-classic film From Dusk till Dawn. The popular 1996 flick, which originally starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino is now taking on the small screen. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which features Eiza Gonzalez, Wilmer Valderrama, and Jesse Garcia, is now airing on Rodriguez' new television channel, El Rey.
There are so many flicks we wish would follow suit! We'd love to see these 5 films adapted into a TV show:
Robert Rodriguez' highly-stylized action flick was insanely awesome, and trust us: we'll be the first in line to see the sequel. But still, we want more than just two movies. The film had all the elements necessary for great TV: a mysterious gang of characters, a city brimming with criminals, crooked cops, and sexy dames, and an all-star cast featuring several kickass Latinas, including Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Alexis Bledel.
We'd love to see Jessica Alba head back to the small screen, and star in a sexy, dark, crime drama -- Sin City: The Series.
We loved everything about Hitch, the romantic comedy about a charismatic player (Will Smith) who teaches awkward men how to woo women. And the best part? Eva Mendes starred as his gorgeous, workaholic love interest.
We'd love to see Will Smith and Eva Mendes (and their friends Kevin James and Amber Valletta) take the small screen by storm in a comedy called The Date Doctor. The show would follow their relationship as the couple works together to set up men and women with their perfect match. It's the perfect combination of the Millionaire Matchmaker, the Bachelor, and How I Met Your Mother.
Two words: Male strippers.
We'd tune in weekly to see Adam Rodriguez, Channing Tatum, and Matthew McConaughey bare it all on stage. But, truth be told: Magic Mike was about much more than six-pack abs. The movie was all about the American Dream, and that concept translates pretty well to the small screen. But...also....shirtless guys. We'd definitely watch that.
The Fast and the Furious
Okay, we know there's been about a million installments of this popular action franchise. In our humble opinion, each movie was better than the last, and, let's be honest: the action, the thrills, and the incredible cast kept us coming back for more.
We'd love to see the successful movie series adapted into a weekly TV show, starring some of the badass mujeres from the flicks: Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Elsa Pataky.
We loved Spy Kids as children, and we forced our parents to take us to the movie theaters to watch each and every installment of the saga. Hey, the story of a family of Latino superheroes really inspired us as kids! We were always left thinking: if Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara can save the world, then why can't we? We'd love for Latino kids to have more role models on screen, and adapting Spy Kids into a children's show could be just the way to do it.
Let's bring another family of Latino superheroes to the small screen in a TV adaptation of Spy Kids. Maybe Alexa Vega can return as the older sister!
