First Photo: Lindsay Lohan as a Nun with an Uzi in Machete!
Oh sh*t! We've seen two trailers and plenty of photos for Robert Rodriguez's Machete, so what else is there to see? You may remember hearing that
actress drug-addict Lindsay Lohan (who's now thankfully behind bars in real life) was cast in a role in this movie, but damnit we still haven't seen much of her yet. Our Dutch friends at FilmTotaal.nl have landed the first good photo of Lohan as "April Benz," who is wearing a nun's outfit while holding onto one gigantic silenced(?) uzi (although I don't know all of my weapon terminology perfectly). Although it's not much, this is pretty damn cool to see, maybe just to laugh at, but there you go.
Machete is co-directed by both Robert Rodriguez and his long-time editor Ethan Maniquis as his very first directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Robert Rodriguez and is an expanded version of the "fake" Machete trailer Rodriguez made for the release of Grindhouse in 2007. He finally got a greenlight last year and shot this down in Austin, TX last year with quite an impressive cast. 20th Century Fox will be bringing Machete to theaters on Labor Day Weekend - September 3rd. Can't wait to see it. Bring on the Machete!
