Rhino preps ‘Pulp’ send-up

“Plump Fiction,” a send-up of the $100 million grossing Quentin Tarantino hit, will be the first film out of the gate for Rhino Films, a newly minted division of Rhino Entertainment.

Rhino is the archival music, film and pop culture packager now branching out into the feature film business with a slate of pics in development.

“Plump” follows the adventures of two bug exterminators, Jules and Jimmy, who have to babysit Mimi, the boss’ girl, who has an eating disorder. Their mission is to keep her away from food.

The project was brought to Rhino by producer Gary Binkow and will be helmed by first-timer Bob Koherr, the comedy actor who also penned the script.

The film, to be entirely financed by Rhino, will cost between $3 million and $5 million.
