Tarantino and Rodriguez make horror movie!
The Weinstein brothers' new company have just announced their release schedule, and among such cool releases as Killshot and Sin City 2 is a new project titled GRIND HOUSE which will be written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. GRIND HOUSE is set to be released spring 2006. 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 GRIND HOUSE. Tarantino says GRIND HOUSE could be the first in a series of films.
THR writes " The film, which is planned for a spring 2006 release, also will 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 that earned the moniker grindhouses for programming genre pics back to back. An aficionado of grindhouse, Tarantino sampled grindhouse genres in his recent "Kill Bill" films. He said "Grind House" could be the first in a series of films. In a statement, the Weinsteins said, "We couldn't imagine anything more exciting than a film being made together by the two godfathers of our companies, Quentin and Robert." (Gregg Kilday)"
