'Grindhouse' to Be Split in Two?

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is planning to re-release Grindhouse as two separate films--after the double-bill flopped at the box office.

The film, a double feature directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, made just $11.6 million in its opening weekend in the U.S.

Producer Weinstein is disappointed--and thinks Tarantino's Death Proof and Rodriguez's Planet Terror will perform better on their own.

He tells PageSix.com, "I don't think people understood what we were doing. The audience didn't get the idea that it is two movies for the price of one. I don't understand the math, but I want to accommodate the audience."
