Tarantino's "Grindhouse" to be Funny and Real

by | November 7, 2006 | Comments

Robert Rodriguez showed footage of his "Grindhouse" movie, "Planet Terror," at Comic-Con. The crazy action include amputated strippers and Danny Trejo with a trench coat full of machetes. Mary Elizabeth Winstead assured Rotten Tomatoes that Quentin Tarantino‘s portion of Grindhouse, "Death Proof," will be just as crazy, but a little bit different.

"On a smaller scale," she explained. "There’s not so many characters and there’s not so much going on. Robert’s is more of a fantasy kind of thing whereas Quentin’s is more like a real life. Kurt Russell‘s the madman but he’s human. He’s not a zombie or something that would happen in some other world like Planet Terror. So it’s on a smaller scale but it’s just as ridiculous and crazy as Robert’s in some ways."

Expect the usual brand of Tarantino’s pop culture riffing. Winstead’s character description alone sounds quotable. "I play this up and coming starlet who’s in a movie with Lindsay Lohan. We talk about that in the script and we’re playing cheerleaders, so I’m in a cheerleader outfit the whole time. Rosario Dawson plays my makeup artist and most of it is actually really comedic in a lot of ways until it turns terrifying.’

"Grindhouse" is scheduled for April 6, 2007.
