Comic-Con 2011: Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions

Any Robert Rodriguez fans in the house?  Well if there are, you’re in luck.  I was shocked to learn that Robert Rodriguez scored his very own Hall H panel.  That either means that the guy is a name brand now or the world of comics are taking Comic-Con back over by storm.  Or maybe it’s both?  Whatever the reason, I’m not complaining.  Anytime you can get Robert Rodriguez to talk to you…soak all that info up, baby!  Nevertheless, he was there to tell the captive audience about the following.  Buckle up and hold on!

First up…Machete!  Machete Kills and Machete Kills again have been greenlit!  The third film is supposed to be a space opera.  He announced that Spy Kids 4 will be presented in 4D with an aromascope.  Also, the following news will make many Rodriguez and Miller fans very happy.  Sin City 2 will start filming this year or it won’t happen at all.  He would love to do it in 3D and it’s now titled A Dame To Kill For.

But perhaps, even more important, Mr. Rodriguez was very ecstatic to discuss his newest production company called Quick Draw Productions.  It’s a film production company that can develop, finance, greenlight and produce films.  That will allow him and his team to focus on story and character.

Quick Draw’s first project will be Heavy Metal.  His biggest announcement, according to him, was the partnership with AMD that will push the production boundaries of technology in his films.  He has worked with them for the past 10 years.

And last but not least, he also announced another project called Fire and Ice based on the artwork of Frank Frazetta.

When does this guy sleep?

Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
