#SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA TO US
Quentin Tarantino Picks Mickey Rourke
Things are coming together nicely for the new Quentin Tarantino
/ Robert Rodriguez
double-feature Grind House
Based on the old-fashioned Drive-In movie concept of two 75-minute flicks with an intermission, Rodriguez opens the show with Project Terror
, a horror flick with zombies not unlike the flesh-eaters in the director’s From Dusk Till Dawn
Tarantino closes with Death Proof
, a slasher flick with the always creepy Mickey Rourke
in a muscle car chasing three hot chicks down the highway.
QT says Rourke is “kicking ass and taking names like nobody's business."
What intrigues us is the middle act – the damned intermission.
“Years ago, you’d see an exploitation double-feature when they used to come out,” Tarantino explains.
“So we're going to do two horror films and release them together, and set it all up like a real night at the movie theatre. All the intermission stuff will be there. Between the movies, we're going to do trailers for exploitation movies that don't exist, okay? It'll be just like going to one of those movie theatres that don't exist anymore."
I wonder if between flicks we get to see the reluctant hot dog finally jump into a willing bun like in the good old days.
Not that Robert Rodriquez is chopped liver but if Tarantino’s name is on the poster, we are at the Grind House
on December One.
