‘Terror’ taps young cast

McGowan, Brolin, Rodriguez to star in 'Planet'

Freddy Rodriguez, Rose McGowan and Josh Brolin will star in Robert Rodriguez’s “Planet Terror,” a 60-minute zombie movie to be accompanied by a slasher film directed by Quentin Tarantino and released under the title “Grind House” by Dimension Films.

Dimension will bow “Grind House” — a tribute to the ’70s exploitation films that influenced both directors — on Easter weekend next year. This past Easter saw a record-breaking holiday weekend for Dimension with the release of “Scary Movie 4.”

Casting hasn’t been announced for Tarantino’s “Death Proof,” which also will run about 60 minutes.

Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Michael Parks and the Black Eyed Peas’ Stacy Ferguson also star in “Planet.”

The two pics will be surrounded by faux trailers created by Tarantino and Rodriguez.
