There was a time when word of anything Robert Rodriguez-related was music to my ears. Now, I just wonder why he releases anything about a new project. It inevitably disappears, gets put on the backburner, or whatever has been happening to all of the projects he's supposed to be involved in -- the world of Sin City, the Barbarella remake, Women in Chains...

Maybe this is the project that will change it all... Variety reports that Rodriguez is teaming up with old studio friend Dimension for a new futuristic thriller called Nerverackers, which he will both write and direct. The film will focus on a dude named Joe Tezca in the year 2085. He's "part of an elite unit dispatched to quell a crime wave in a theoretically perfect future society."

What's most surprising about this news is that there's already a release date -- April 16, 2010. I guess this means he won't be a one-man movie maker this time around, because that's not a whole heck of a lot of time. And it also suggests that the other projects he's been attached to are either null and void, or are on the backburner for another year. Any bets on whether Rose gets a role?

Whatever happens, he just needs to make something. Since he doesn't have a cooking show, I need more cooking school.
