The article reports that film director Quentin Tarantino, whose film "Pulp Fiction" helped turn Miramax Films Corp. into a powerhouse, and Robert Rodriguez, whose "Spy Kids" films have been a lucrative franchise for Miramax's genre arm Dimension, are teaming up to make a film for Bob and Harvey Weinstein's new Weinstein Co. The film is scheduled for a spring 2006 release as part of a rapidly evolving release slate. Tarantino and Rodriguez will each write and direct a 60-minute horror film, and the two films will be packaged together under the overall title "Grind House."
