Robert Rodriguez Set to Write and Direct Nevercracker

Robert Rodriguez’s next project won’t be returning to Sin City. It is, however, back at Dimension films where he will write and direct a new futuristic thriller.

Dubbed Nerveracker, the concept is set in the year 2085 and follows an elite unit warrior Joe Tezca, responsible for stopping a crime wave against a Utopian society. He soon discovers the culprits are “Nevercrackers” whose motives may or may not be tied into the very ruling class they’re attempting to overthrow.

Rodriguez commented, “This is one of those projects that we dreamed about making for years, and now the timing is right to finally do it. Bob (Weinstein) has always been encouraging and shown genuine excitement for my ideas. That gets me pumped to make them realities.”

Dimension has set an April 16, 2010 release for Nevercrackers… whatever they may actually be.
