Tarantino has cast Michael Bacall (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), filmmaker Eli Roth (Hostel) and newcomer Omar Doom in his slasher movie.
Death Proof also stars Kurt Russell and Zoe Bell, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Jordan Ladd, Rose McGowan, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Marley Shelton, Tracie Thoms and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Filming on Death Proof commenced August 21 in Austin.
Rodriguez's Planet Terror, which has wrapped shooting, stars Freddy Rodriguez, Rose McGowan, Josh Brolin, Naveen Andrews, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn, Stacy Ferguson (also known as Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas), Jeff Fahey, and Michael Parks.
Grindhouse is being shot in the tradition of the '70s exploitation films that have significantly influenced both Rodriguez and Tarantino. The two films will be joined by faux ads and trailers.
