Grind House

Postby Zeo » Tue Nov 08, 2005 11:12 pm

Some of you may have heard of this already. This is the project Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are working on, currently in production. Each director will be doing an hour long horror film, with a hats off to grindhouse flicks with fake movie trailers sandwiched in between the two. Basically two movies in one.
Words can't describe how fucking giddy I am over this one. :twisted:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Directors/Screenwriters: Robert Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino
Production: 2005/2006
Release: planned for Spring 2006
Genre: Grindhouse/Exploitation/Splatter/Giallo/Zombie/Drive-in
Details: 2 hour film, intermission in the middle, filled with fake trailers. 1h by Rodriguez, 1h by Tarantino (the two parts have nothing to do with each other)
Company: Weinstein Corp.
Titles: Death Proof (by QT), Planet Terror (by RR)


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)"

The next thing Quentin is shooting will be here in Austin, Texas with his buddy Robert Rodriguez and it's called GRIND HOUSE. [.. ]I got to chat with Rodriguez about GRIND HOUSE quite a bit and this is really going to be a hardcore geekgasm of a flick. First - They'll be getting very cool directors to create GrindHouse style trailers for fictional films to put between and before the film. As to who goes first? It seems that in California - Quentin's hour will play first... In Texas - Robert's hour will play first... and everywhere else - it'll be projectionists' discretion. Same with the order of the trailers before and between the "featured attractions". They will be shot digitally - but in post - they'll be made to have that flawed dirty, nappy - film stock changing at the "reel breaks" faded, pink, saturated 70's film look. Sometimes there'll be a "bad splice" to purposefully cause a missing piece of dialogue. In otherwords... it'll be exactly like a GRIND HOUSE experience... only without the piss on the floor and rats residing in old discarded popcorn buckets in the theater. As for this BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 thing... nothing really to it.

Speaking to MTV News, Tarantino explained: 'His [Rodriguez'] movie is called 'Planet Terror' and mine is called 'Death Proof'. Mine is sort of a slasher film, but instead of a knife, it's a car. 'He's dealing with zombies and all that stuff. I think his might end up being more violent, but I'm not finished with my [script] yet, so you never know.' and on the trailers: That's one of the things we're looking the most forward to, shooting the phoney trailers that will play in-between the movies. I'm working on my blaxploitation trailer, and possibly a kung fu trailer, a sexploitation trailer, a spaghetti western trailer... I just need to kind of work them out a little bit.'

" John Jarrett, who will send chills down you're spine in Dimension Films' Wolf Creek, has apparently signed on to start in Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grind House, according to Dark Horizons. They also report via ABC radio that he may also appear in QT's Inglorious Bastards. Jarratt will next be seen in a cameo in Greg McLean's Rogue with Radha Mitchell."

I don't know how I missed this prior...but I was talking with my brother last night while watching "Desperado" about QT and the RR shooting a flick together.

As much as I hate Tarrintino...I will have to see this, if nothing, than for the way it's set up...as 2 differant films...

IMDB has the release date pushed back to December 1st. :-?

Rodriguez has split with his wife of 16 years, co-founder of Los Hooligans Productions Elizabeth Avellan, announcing to the set:
"This is an extremely painful time for me and my family, and Elizabeth and I very much appreciate your understanding and patience."

http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2006-04-07/#3

Good news is Tom Savini and Danny Trejo are listed as credited cast members, and each film is going to run about 75 minutes. Along with the faux trailers in the intermission, would set the whole movie at about 3 hours running time! :twisted:

Rumor mill over at bloody-disgusting.com is Rodriguez split with his wife due to an affair he was having with Rose McGowan, the starlet in his 'Planet Terror', which as of last week was reportedly shut down indefinately.

Tarantino's official site dispells the rumor as tabloid fodder, stating Quentin is set to start shooting next month.

I still have my fingers crossed they will have this sucker churned out by fall anyway.

Rue and I got into the sneak preview showing last night. Planet Terror was goddamn disgusting and awesome. More gore than ever before, off tha fuckin' hook! Robert Rodriguez made this very John Carpenter-esque, and I gotta own the soundtrack.
Kurt Russell was great in Death Proof. Classic Tarantino, witty dialogue and in-jokes. Nastiest car crash in a movie ever, I just can't say enough, great fucking flick. Rob Zombie's trailer for 'Werewolf Women of the SS'...hilarious. Nicolas Cage as Fu Manchu! Bwaaaa! Goddamn I wish he would make that into a real film.
The whole double feature tops out just over 3 hours, and totally worth the price of admission. Go see it this weekend.

I bet it is highly entertaining, but it looks so cheezy, I just don't know if I can take it.

I hate that saying: "You can't have your cake and eat it too."

Because what's the point of having cake when you aren't able to savour and enjoy every tastey morsel it has to offer you.....
