Tarantino And Rodriguez Grind Together For Weinsteins
Acclaimed directors QUENTIN TARANTINO and ROBERT RODRIGUEZ are teaming up to make a double feature to help former MIRAMAX moguls BOB and HARVEY WEINSTEIN launch their new film company WEINSTEIN CO.
The legendary film makers will each write and direct a graphic 60-minute horror film, and both movies will be packaged back-to-back under the same film title GRIND HOUSE.
The release - planned for spring 2006 - is a tribute to the old, big-city movie houses which earned the grindhouse moniker, for programming genre pictures back-to-back.
And Tarantino, who sampled grindhouse genres in his KILL BILL films, is considering making a series of movies with the SPY KIDS director if their current collaboration proves successful.
He says, "Grind House could be the first in a series of films."
The Weinstein brothers' movie company will be given a new, permanent name in the summer (05).27/05/2005 14:02
