Eli Roth Hopeful For Second Grind House Double Bill

Speaking to Rotten Tomatoes, Eli Roth has suggested that a second Grind House double bill would feature Thanksgiving and Don't as full length films. Thanksgiving would be easy enough, I'm sure, but the supposed continental European heritage of Don't might cause Edgar Wright some headaches in the adaptation to full length.

Besides, there's really not much chance of a Grind House sequel being commissioned, is there? I doubt we'll ever see Machete completed and there's over a third of that in the can already.

I disagree. The film will recoup its money on DVD, and I think Quentin and Robert have enough power that, as long as they make it cheaper, they can do whatever they want, including more Grindhouse.

What's the "european" aspect of DON'T? I thought the gag was it was an American trailer for a British film, with any wacky dubbing used to disguise its U.K. origins (as apparently used to happen to British films in the U.S. at the time during the Grindhouse heyday, for a non-discerning, potential xenophobic, audience).

As it happens, the gag was not that the film is British, but (most likely) Itallian. Aside from John Hough's Legend of Hell House, the many reference points were Argento, Bava et al.

I think people assumed Brit links at first, because Edgar is from here.
