Never one to let a good exploitation flick go to waste, Robert Rodriguez has decided to expand the trailer into a feature-length movie. Rodriguez wrote the script and will co-direct with Ethan Maniquis this summer, with a non-studio direct-to-DVD release most likely. Here's the original mock trailer (NSFW, obviously):

As if that wasn’t enough, Rodriguez also told Varietythat he has completed a script, Predators, designed to reboot the alien-hunter franchise now stuck in Alien vs. Predator mode. A tireless champion of exuberant violence and the poetry of the action movie, he could not be more suited for the job.

Rodriguez's latest, the kids' flick Shorts, opens in August.
