These may simply be Internet rumors, but apparently despite the box office failure of Grindhouse, we still may be in store for a Grindhouse 2, this time with Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) and Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) pulling the double-bill. As you probably know, both directors contributed, along with Rob Zombie, fake trailers between Planet Terror and Death Proof, in perhaps the finest moments of the whole shebang. I have to admit a bit of excitement at this, possibly because both Roth and Wright are too young at filmmaking to even touch the narcissism and self-indulgence of Tarantino. Also, keep your fingers crossed that the Weinsteins actually know how to market this on their second time around.
