The fine fellows over at ComingSoon.net have posted a new shred of info today. Eli Roth, the director of Hostel, will be making an appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, sharing screen time with Kurt Russell, Michael Bacall, Omar Doom, Zoe Bell, Rosario Dawson, Jordan Ladd (who starred in Roth’s deubt, Cabin Fever), Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and a helluva lot more.
Grind House is Tarantino’s upcoming collaboration with director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City). Death Proof will be sharing the big screen with Planet Terror on April 6th, 2007. While the title of Rodriguez’s entry into the project sounds a bit sci-fi, don’t be fooled since it’s a zombie film. Rodriguez has Rose McGowan, Josh Brolin, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, and Michael Parks in his, to name just a few. We get to see Kurt Russell in a slasher and Rose McGowan in a zombie flick? There is magic in the air! World peace may even be at hand!
Each film will be feature length, separated by fake commercials and film trailers. Something new and exciting, I must say. The return of 70’s style exploitation films, and you get two for the price of one!
Wonder what character Eli might play in our forums!
