There may be more to the rumors of QT re-making a Chinese Kung Fu movie prior to starting Inglorious Bastards than I originally thought. A story in the Hollywood Reporter today about the Weinsteins investing in Asian films says this:
Titles that the fund is expected to handle include Wong Kar Wai’s “My Blueberry Nights,” the opening-night film at the Festival de Cannes, and a remake of the Hong Kong martial arts movie “Come Drink With Me,” directed by Quentin Tarantino.
I think this is the IMDB entry for the original version of Come Drink With Me.
Tarantino talks about GRINDHOUSE’s box office disappointment and his plans for the Cannes version of Death Proof.
If you liked the idea of the Tarantinotes, but were disappointed because they were based in the UK, then you’ll love the Tarantinos NYC.
They are a cover band that plays nothing but songs from Tarantino’s films – and they are based in New York. Also check out their MySpace page.
Not suprisingly, Tarantino is taking Death Proof to the Cannes Film Festival.
I’m just hoping that Michael Moore doesn’t win again.
With the split of GRINDHOUSE coming, you may want to go ahead and pick up the double poster – it may not be around much longer.
Here are all of the GRINDHOUSE posters
Also, do a Control-Refresh if this entry looks odd – I’ve updated the CSS and that’ll make sure it loads for you.
Just an FYI, the Tarantino Archives (tarantino.info) has experience some serious database problems that has taken them offline until they can be fixed. They’ve set up a temporary blog at tarantinoarchives.blogspot.com to keep folks informed as to their status. Here’s hoping they are up and running again soon.
Blackfilm has a couple of interviews up with Sydney Tamiia Poitier and Tracie Thoms about their roles in GRINDHOUSE. Thanks to Wilson for the heads up.
If you haven’t been out to see GRINDHOUSE yet, get off your ass and go. It fell out of the top 10 in the box office and only made $434 per screen this past week – likely meaning that its not going to be in theatres for much longer.
Its apparently panic time for Harvey Weinstein – he’s kicking around the idea of re-releasing GRINDHOUSE as 2 separate movies in just a couple of weeks.
This is just wrong, wrong, wrong.
