Speaking of ‘Grind House’… Here’s Official Casting News

Although this news comes pretty damn late, there are a few small tid-bits worth chewing on. Freddy (Poseidon) Rodriguez, Rose (Scream) McGowan and Josh (The Dead Girl) Brolin will star in Robert Rodriguez’s “Planet Terror,” a 60-minute zombie movie to be accompanied by a slasher film directed by Quentin Tarantino and released under the title Grind House by Dimension Films, according to Variety. As previously reported Dimension will bow “Grind House” — a tribute to the ’70s exploitation films that influenced both directors — on Easter weekend next year. This past Easter saw a record-breaking holiday weekend for Dimension with the release of “Scary Movie 4.” Casting hasn’t officially been announced for Tarantino’s “Death Proof,” which is now filming in Los Angeles, CA. Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Michael Parks and the Black Eyed Peas’ Stacy Ferguson round out the cast in “Planet.” The two pics will be surrounded by faux trailers created by Tarantino and Rodriguez.
