After much discussion, the Weinstein Co’s mouthwateringly interesting project, Grind is finally moving towards production. The film, a project of modest budgets, aims to be a quickly put-together ‘grindhouse’ project, with Robert Sin City Rodriguez directing a 60-minute zombie pic, and Quentin Tarantino (hallelujah!) making an hourlong slasher film.
Now, Variety informs us that Rodriguez is close to beginning work on the project, and that the films have been titled. RR’s is called Planet Terror and Q’s is Death Proof. Featuring as independent B-films, they will be mercilessly spliced together with the aid of fictional advertisements. Here lies the the fun bit:
The two filmmakers are hammering out concepts for some of the faux trailers and ads that will run between the two pics as an intermission. Tarantino is keen this time on shooting a fake trailer for a sexploitation movie titled “Cowgirls in Sweden.” Other possibilities include a blaxploitation pic and a kung-fu movie.
Awesomeness is in the making. Yay!
