Roth and Wright for Grindhouse 2?

EliRoth.jpgEli Roth has been talking about a possible Grindhouse sequel with the film version of his Thanksgiving trailer going alongside Edgar Wright's film of his Don't trailer.

It's strange that a sequel is being banded around already, especially with the first film still to be proven in a split format, but Roth is talking about it none the less, and to be fair it is very much talking.

"I already talked with Edgar Wright about Edgar doing 'Don't' and me doing 'Thanksgiving,'...We're talking to Dimension about it. I think they're still trying to figure out 'Grindhouse 1' before we think about 'Grindhouse 2,' but I've already been working on the outline for it and I would do it in a heartbeat."

That's the quote from Rotten Tomatoes through Bloody Disgusting where he also goes onto say that he would be true to the old eighties films where the high school students were all older actors, so he says he'd do it with all his friends who are in their thirties. He also goes onto say that the fun part of working on Grindhouse is not having a full script so that all he needs is a treatment just now.

"You've just got to work out the kills and then see who's around and grab a camera and have fun."

Well, I don't think that's the only reason. After all, Grindhouse failed in the US, and that's not too strong a word to use. As a split release it still has to be proven, and that's where the rest of the world comes in. We'll have to help make it a profit in order for the second to make it further than a concept.

Without even having seen the first film do you think you'd be interested in a second with Eli Roth and Edgar Wright, and I presume you'd want it back to back again...how can we win? Don't go and see the two films and not get a sequel, but go and see the two films and we make the split release a success.
