Acclaimed director Robert Rodriguez delivers more action-packed thrills with Roadracers, the story of a rockin' rebel named Dude (David Arquette), racing through life with a fast car, a loud guitar, a sexy girlfriend (Salma Hayek) and a big mouth. But when a confrontation ends with deadly threats, Dude finds himself speeding head-on toward a showdown that will settle the score for good. With hot stars and an energetic style all its own, Roadracers is fast-paced entertainment that never slows down.

The concept was 10-week series of 1950s "drive-in classic" B-movies remade "with a '90s edge". The impetus for the series, according to Arkoff was, "what it would be like if you made Rebel Without a Cause today. It would be more lurid, sexier, and much more dangerous, and you definitely would have had Natalie Wood's top off". Originally, Arkoff wanted to call the series, Raging Hormones but Showtime decided on Rebel Highway instead. Arkoff and Hill invited several directors to pick a title from one of Samuel Arkoff's movies, hire their own writers and create a story that could resemble the original if they wanted. In addition, they had the right to a final cut and select their own director of photography and the editor. Each director was given a $1.3 million budget and 12 days to shoot it with a cast of young, up and coming actors and actresses. According to Arkoff, the appeal to directors was that, "They weren't hampered by big studios saying, 'You can't do this or that.' And all the directors paid very close attention to the detail of the era. We want these shows to be fun for the younger generation and fun for the older generation".
The series premiered with Robert Rodriguez's Roadracers on July 22, 1994.

I see others complaining about it being shot in two weeks. Realize that this movie was picked up by Robert (for showtime) because those before him basically dumped the project. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Skubeedoo
