So have the millions of Tarantino/Rodriguez fans jumped up in the air at the excitement of this announcement? According to Eonline, Tarantino and Rodriguez are set to team up for the Horror film Grind House which will be released sometime next spring.

Tarantino and Rodriguez take Grind House

Each director will write and direct a 60 minute story that will interconnect with each other. Grind House is the first film to be announced under Bob and Harvey Weinstein's new production company which they started after deciding to leave Miramax/Disney earlier this year.

In a statement the Weinstein's said, "We have said all along that we would hit the ground running and we are confident that this slate will represent and deliver the kinds of movies that audiences will love." This can only mean good news for film loves everywhere that the Weinstein's are committed to making cult films like this.

This isn't the first time Rodriguez and Tarantino have worked together. Tarantino had a guest spot in Rodriguez's Desperado and the two collaborated with two other directors for Four Rooms. The two then worked together on their homage to B-horror films with From Dusk Till Dawn (Tarantino wrote and acted, Rodriguez directed) and recently Rodriguez wrote a song for the Kill Bill Soundtrack and Tarantino directed one scene in Sin City after losing a bet to Rodriguez.

Let's just hope that Tarantino's attention isn't distracted (we're still waiting on Inglorious Bastards, his possible Pulp Fiction spin off on Travolta's character Vincent and of course his Kill Bill anime he was planning) and gets this done in time to be released next spring. Rodriguez shouldn't have a problem with this as he's known for getting films done fast and efficient.

No word as to who or if anyone's been cast yet, but look for more news in the coming months as we get closer to September and the Weinstein's freedom from Miramax/Disney.
