Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) is set to direct the sci-fi thriller Nervewrackers for Dimension, which he will also write and which already has a release date of April 16, 2010, Variety reported.

Set in 2085, the story centers on a character named Joe Tezca who is part of an elite unit dispatched to quell a crime wave in a theoretically perfect future society.

Most of Rodriguez's filmography has borne the Dimension label, including Sin City, the Planet Terror half of Grindhouse and the Spy Kids franchise.
