Heres what Mickey had to say about the whole Grindhouse thing:
RADAR: Since you returned to acting, there’s lots of discussion about whether you’re “reformed.” Do you ever feel like people jus t want you to become a boring schlub?
MR: People see that wh atever-you-want-to-call-it in me and it scares a lot of them. But if I have that in me and I’m not putting my hand through someone’s head, then they should chill the fuck out. The guys who are afraid are the ones who were around when I was just starting out. The younger directors like Rodriguez and Aronofsky that I’m working with now aren’t afraid of it. I also just recently got offered a Tarantino movie that I didn’t, that I chose not to do.
RADAR: After turning down Pulp Fiction, why did you pass up the opportunity to work with Tarantino on his latest project, Grindhouse?
MR: You know what? He hasn’t made any comments about it. And until he makes a comment about it, I’m not going to say anything. It just didn’t work out. And I hope that’s what he has to say. I’m just going to wait.
What the hell is THAT about? Sorry, but Mickster seems like an asshole for that move.
I dont even care, I’m happy that Kurt Russell’s doing it. Rourke’s always talking about how he’s lucky that hes gotten a second chance in Hollywood, yet he turns down a Tarantino movie? He’s sort of a dumbass.d
