The "Grind House" Welcomes its First Visitors

by | March 30, 2006 | Comments

CHUD.com clues us in on a few of the first cast members signed to star in the Tarantino/Rodriguez horror flick "Grind House," which is presently in production down in beautiful Austin, Texas. Here’s a clue: One of the new cast members is no stranger to things that occur "Six Feet Under."

Says the CHUD gang: "Robert Rodriguez is currently hard at work making mayhem down in Austin with his part of the RR/QT combo Grind House, and now we’ve heard of another human appearing in the flick: Six Feet Under corpse-restoration expert Freddy Rodriguez… Though his HBO show may be over, Freddy will still have bodies to contend with — the Robert Rodriguez half of the horror-exploitation double-feature is called Project Terror, a zombie homage that apparently concerns a sheriff department dealing with an outbreak of infected lunatics (called "sickos").

We’re not sure of Freddy’s role in the film, but given the involvement of gore god Greg Nicotero and Rodriguez’s penchant for splatternalia, there’s a good possibility he’ll meet a messy end. Project Terror also stars Michael Biehn (yay!), Josh Brolin, Tom Savini and Marley Shelton, among others yet to be confirmed or identified."

Both filmmakers have displayed some success in the arena of horror: Robert Rodriguez for his "From Dusk Till Dawn" and "The Faculty," and Quentin Tarantino for his acting career. (ba dum bum)

For a bit more info on the project, including some scoopage on the QT side of the story, hit CHUD.
