Simon Pegg Is Angry 'Grindhouse' Will Be Split In Two For European Release
He says, "It is f**king ridiculous. It is a brilliant film and it really annoys me that they have kind of got the knives out for him (Tarantino). I think there was a slight miseducation of the great American public about what 'Grindhouse' was and what it meant. It is a big cult movie really and because it didn't have a great weekend splash everyone is saying it is a flop.
"In 10 years time no one is going to have Are We Done Yet - the film that was top of the box office that week - in their DVD collection but they will have 'Grindhouse,' because 'Grindhouse' is a classic. So much of this is about box office receipts. It seems to be out of the hands of the artists and more of the hands of the accountants. That is just a tragedy really."
Earlier this month, producer Harvey Weinstein revealed "a revision of U.K. release plans (will) allow audiences the chance to see the films separately."
