"Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are to helm "Grind House". Tarantino and Rodriguez will each write and direct a 60-minute horror film, and the two films will be packaged together under the overall title.
It will also include its own trailers, bonus materials and added extras from other filmmakers that will be packaged together between the two horror flicks in a tribute to the old, big-city movie houses like those on New York's 42nd Street.
The feature will be released in the Spring of 2006.
So far the cast is:
Dean Fernando - Alex Li
Alicia Rachel Marek - Redhead Babe
Mickey Rourke - Stuntman Mike
Zoe Bell - Zoe
The two horror films (which are now both 75 minutes each) are:
Project Terror (a zombie film, title has been mistaken to be 'Planet Terror') - Directed by Robert Rodriguez
Death Proof (a slasher film, said by Tarantino to be a slasher with a car instead of a knife) - Directed by Quentin Tarantino
Some of the fake trailers announced are for:
A sexploitation film called Cowgirls in Sweden, a blaxploitation movie, a kung fu movie, a trailer for a movie called Machete, and a spaghetti western movie.
Grind House will be released on December 1, 2006.
I can't wait for this film!
