This is becoming harder to follow, and report on, than Showtime's Masters of Horror anthology. With cast being announced, dropped and then recast - the shoot being put on hold and other problems arising, I don't know how anyone could have the cast listing correct for Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grind House, which hits theaters April of '07. Inside you'll learn more about the cast, like how Rose McGowan will be in both Quentin's 'Death Proof' and Robert's 'Project Terror' and how Mickey Rourke is not in the film anymore (sigh). Read on... and for gods sake, try and keep up!

Film Ick reports:

"Not only will Rose McGowan be appearing in Robert Rodriguez' Project Terror, she'll also be popping up in Death Proof, Tarantino's half of the Grind House package. She joins Zoe Bell, Rosario Dawson, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

No idea yet what role Ms. McGowan has, but trust me, she's in there, it's a fact. The gossips amongst you are bound to spell out exactly how and why she's getting this double-duty in the comments section below.

Project Terror has pretty much wrapped, with no "first unit-style" work to be done, while Death Proof is yet to really get moving.

The original script for Death Proof, some details of which have leaked, and the dialogue from which has been regulalry criticised, has apparently just undergone a bout of rewriting. I hear that there have been a number changes made to the dialogue - and now, reportedly, not only is Tarantino happier, so are his confidants and colleagues. I don't know, yet, just how much has changed, or if, in fact, there have also been any plot or structural changes.

Death Proof has a fairly radical structure, shifting emphasis quite suddenly part way through in a way that has brought a lot of comparison to Psycho. I think that conceit is quite safe.

[And here comes that update...]

There's also a part, I have just been informed, for one Quentin Tarantino. He's playing a character called, simply, The Rapist. Wonder what he's like, then?

After this and Richie Gecko in From Dusk Til Dawn, you could be excused for thinking Rodriguez wasn't trying to tell us something about his chum. Tarantino might not be the best actor in the world but I reckon he can pull this one off in fine style - he certainly knows the pitch of these films perfectly."

Then they continue with more:

"I can now report, and sadly, that Mickey Rourke will apparently NOT be playing Stuntman Mike in Death Proof. The role seemed tailor made for him, but then so did Bill for Warren Beatty.

Also note that Rose McGowan's character in Death Proof now appears to be, as a matter of fact, her character from Project Terror, Cherry. Depending on which plotline is supposed to take place first, you can expect to see her with both of her original legs, or just one, and a weird kind of spare. Trust me - that'll make sense when you see the movie(s).
