The Weinstein Company announces their initial slate... Plus Tarantino & Rodriguez to team up on GRIND HOUSE!!!

Hey folks, Harry here with killer cool news. By Spring of next year - we'll have a Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez team up picture called GRIND HOUSE. No, no... it isn't the cut throat story of Starbuck's rise of Coffee Shop corporate supremacy. Instead - it will be two separate 60 minute Horror films directed by each of them... with a bizarre assembly of oddities sandwiched between from other unnamed filmmakers. Trailer, Clips... hell could be a cartoon. For those of you that know Quentin's unquenchable thirst for those old sleazy Grind Houses in the major metropolitan cities of the 70's that played every sort of 'sploitation known to man.

So it seems this will be the next Tarantino film - whether he does his Cantonese Kung Fu film or INGLORIOUS BASTARDS after that is anyone's guess... or something altogether unknown. However, Rodriguez will be filming the next SIN CITY chapters assembled into SIN CITY 2 due in Summer 2006 which will feature A DAME TO KILL FOR.

Hollywood Reporter also released the following slate of films being released by 'The Weinstein Co in 2006.

The Weinstein Co.'s release schedule to date includes:
