First Look: 'Grindhouse'
Two movies, loads of zombies, and one killer car — an early peek at 2007's most twisted flick,
from directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez by Chris Nashawaty
KILLER CASTING Russell as ''Death Proof'''s nutjob driver
QUENTIN TARANTINO'S 'DEATH PROOF' For his half of next spring's two-part exploitation-a-go-go, Tarantino tapped Kurt Russell to play a psycho stunt driver who stalks and runs down hot women in his souped-up muscle car. Vroom!
'PLANET' OF POSSIBILITIES Freddy Rodriguez and Naveen Andrews also pop up as zombie slayers. ''The best thing about Grindhouse is how easily it can be a franchise,'' says Rodriguez. ''We can do kung fu, blaxploitation, you name it.''
ROBERT RODRIGUEZ'S 'PLANET TERROR' Kurt Russell, vehicular mayhem...what's missing? Right, zombies! Sin City's Rodriguez bites into the walking-dead genre with a decidedly B-movie cast led by Rose McGowan (left, with Marley Shelton).
Release Date: April 6, 2007
Studio: Dimension Films (The Weinstein Company)
