HOLLYWOOD -Following the fall-through of his Hateful Eight Western, Quentin Tarantino has announced he will be returning to Grindhouse territory with a another two-hander but this time taking over co-grunge duty is arch-auteur Terrence Malick.
Tarantino told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
Robert Rodriguez is off his game at the moment. I mean, all he’s making is Grindhouse stuff now. So I was drinking Jagermeister with Terry and I happened to mention I’d like to go back and revisit the genre, being disappointed, as I am, with Death Proof. His eyes lit up and he whispered ‘the glory, the glory!’ and then danced around the bar for a full half hour to the strains of Goreki.
Details are sketchy but Tarantino confirms that he will be writing a role for Kevin Costner to turn down. All that we know about Terrence Malick’s contribution is that he is already working on the script under the provisional title Big Tit Nazi Machine Gunners of the Wondrous Light. Terrence Malick was available to comment but we had something we had to do so we didn’t talk to him.
Grindhouse 2 will be released in 2015.
