Given Tarantino's Cannes history, it's possible Death Proof could land a competition slot at fest's 60th edition this year. He won Cannes' top prize in 1994 with Pulp Fiction. Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004) were shown out of competition, and he served as president of the jury in 2004. Tarantino's 87-minute conversation-and-car-chase-packed actioner may extended to have added scenes involving more character development and extended action.
Planet Terror, Rodriguez's gory horror segment of Grindhouse, may be heading to Cannes as well.
Rodriguez's Sin City, for which Tarantino served as "Special Guest Director," competed at Cannes in 2005.
Grindhouse was released April 6th, 2007 and stars Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodríguez, Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn. The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez, Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright, Rob Zombie.
