Robert Rodriguez & Danny Trejo Reuniting for 'Machete Kills' Sequel
This time, they f**ked with the wrong Mexican. Again. That's right, folks, Deadline has news that director Robert Rodriguez and bad-ass Danny Trejo are coming back together for a sequel to Machete, the 2010 film inspired by the short trailer that appeared in Grindhouse back in 2007. Titled Machete Kills, the film is actually the second in a planned trilogy that will bring back Trejo and whatever members of the original cast survived the first film. And if you thought machine gun wielding preachers, and scantily clad ladies hiding weapons in sensitive places was crazy, just wait until you hear where the sequel is going.
Apparently the new film, written by Kyle Ward, will have Machete recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy. The only thing that might make this better is the inclusion of Nazis somehow. The plan is to start production in April and Rodriguez says, "Machete is truly a super hero and Machete Kills will be bigger and more ambitious than the first time.” If Machete ends up taking this bloody fight to space, it's going to be hard to get bigger and better for the third film. Excited?
