Planet Terror Shut Down! reporting!

One of regular (and most reliable) scoopers dropped us a line this afternoon with some depressing news. According to our source Robert Rodriquez’s “Project Terror” was officially shut down for good as of yesterday- the crew was let go and everything. It may gear up again next year, but who knows. Until then, there’s no word on the fate of Tarantino’s “Death Proof”, which is scheduled to shoot in LA this summer. WeinsteinCo.'s Grind House double feature was scheduled to hit theaters December 1st, but it looks like we may be waiting until next year- but who knows maybe they’ll pull a “Kill Bill” and ‘Project Terror’ will end up being a Volume 2 so to speak. Watch for an official statement in the coming weeks for official word. Rodriguez’s part, “Project Terror,” will be a zombie pic, while Tarantino’s section, “Death Proof,” will a slasher seg.

I still can’t believe Rodriguez went over budget. Is that still the reason for the shutdown? Or are there other rumors?

the news is already posted in the grind house buzzer

That didn’t mention we may have to wait till next year. Next year, fuck :frowning:

I don’t believe one word of this. i just heard some new info on actors and characters (being posted later) and i think this thing is just so bizarre…

let’s not overreact

I dont believe any of this either. Lets wait for something more official…

^^^well, this is the second tidbit of news about rodriguez stopping produciton of Planet Terror…so maybe this all means something unfortunatley.

How the fuck can somebody go over budget on a low budget Exploitation film? This isnt some 3 hour epic, its a small 75 minute mini horror movie. These reporters better have their facts right. If not, they’re a bunch of fuckin mongloids.

please don’t confuse last week’s report on a shut down, which turned out to be false because the guys just went to an art exhibition, with this report of a possible shut down
