Rodriguez & Tarantino Prepare to "Grind" It Out

Variety brings a solid report on the highly-anticipated "Grind" horror flick, which will be a dual-story experiment from directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Production is expected to get underway later this month.

"The Weinstein Co.'s highly anticipated experimental pic -- for which Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are each set to helm a 60-minute horror tale -- is headed into production in the coming weeks, with Rodriguez readying to shoot his segment on his home turf of Austin, Texas.

Rodriguez's part, "Planet Terror," will be a zombie pic, while Tarantino's section, "Death Proof," will a slasher segseg.

Casting hasn't been announced.

"Grind" will be shot in the tradition of the '70s exploitation films that influences both helmers. Variety coined the phrase "grindhouse" to describe the seedy, downtown movie theaters that ran double or triple-features with only brief intermissions."

This sounds like a fun little gimmick flick to me. Then again I'm a ravenous horror geek who thought the last genre collaboration from Tarantino & Rodriguez (1996's "From Dusk Till Dawn") was a hoot and a half.

Sounds fun, I'll see it.

And I like From Dusk Till Dawn, just not the sequels.

Sounds like a cool project. This does mean that we'll have to wait longer for the sin city sequel, but i dont mind THAT much. I like new and fresh movies. They should wait a little to do the sin city sequel. They should let the heat from the first die down.

From Dusk Till Dawn: just saw this last week. god it was bad. not really good even for a tongue-in-cheek bad. they both have made stupid 'good' and enjoyable. this was SO not enjoyable.

hopefully this is done better.

Dusk till dawn was fun once they got to Rodriguez's portion of the film. Quentin's portion really sucked.

Australian actor John Jarratt from Wolf creek is set to star in QT's. QT loves his work and desperatley wanted him for a part.

Danny Trejo also from numerous movies including the From dusk til dawn trilogy (if you could call it that :P ) is set to be in it. Can only assume it will be Robert R's film.

From Dusk Til Dawn was good in kind of "I know this sucks" way. It was mean to be fun and violent and crazy, can't wait to see this one.

you can call from dusk till dawn what ever you want, but it's filled with unforgetable scenes, that even if you don't like them they gonna stay with you, unlike 90% of films

this sounds good, sure I'll see it and buy the dvd, but on the other hand seems like a waste of QT's talent

bring on inglorious bastards

with eddie murphy in a real rol, his a very good actor and the only director that seems to know about that is QT

stop hanging out with RR, he might do some fun stuff but you're way out of his league, QT

QTs gotta have some fun, too. I watched an interview with Jay Leno and he says his favorite movie of 2005 was Devil's Rejects. Knowing that, I know he'll make an awesome horror movie.

Probably won't happen for a while. He plans to shoot it sometime in 2007.

Cheers,

Tarantino made what I think is the coolest movie, with the coolest characters saying the coolest dialogue with one of the coolest soundtracks in movie history when he made Reservoir Dogs, and followed that up with Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and the Kill Bill movies. No one makes pulp movies like Quentin Tarantino and when he has fun making movies, we have fun. I look forward to this one, but as cowsfan said "BRING ON INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and make sure Michael Madsen is in it!!!!

From Dusk Till Dawn was fantastic. This'll be tolerable at worst.

I thought From Dusk 'Till Dawn was supposed to be funny... I thought it was, but I still thought it was well made.
