Details are beginning to circulate that sometime next year we're going to see a double-feature homage to the slasher flicks of the 70's in the form of Grind House. Robert Rodriguez (of Sin City fame) will be behind the lens of one of the films, entitled Planet Terror, with Quentin Tarantino taking the reigns for the other feature called Death Proof.
The latter is what we're interested in, as Kurt Russell plays a Hollywood stunt driver, who equips his Camaro with armor and proceeds to terrorize unsuspecting vixens. By all accounts, it looks like Russell will be taking the lead role, but we're confused by the movie poster (pictured) that has Mickey Rourke on the bill. That would be a comeback we'd like to see, especially since Rourke would seem perfectly suited for the role of a psychopathic movie-biz type.

Ain't It Cool News has some on location pictures of the crew shooting in Austin, Texas, along with photos of the Death Proof car itself. Check it.

      The car on AICN's feature is a Nova, not a Camaro. However, the car on the poster does look like a first gen Camaro. In any case, I look forward to both Rodriguez and Terantino's double feature.

      The Russell/Rourke thing, from AICN, is that Rourke was cast first but failed to show for the shoot. Russell is the step-in. Not sure whether to get excited about this or worry about Rosario Dawson's career momentum but there you have it.

      I bet this'll kick ass when it comes out. I look forward to it.

      The studio(s) will advertise the shit out of it, no doubt. "From the makers of Pulp Fiction and Sin City..."
