Danny Trejo Says 'Machete Kills Again...in Space' Will Actually Happen

It looks like Machete is going to be the joke that just won't die. The first feature film debuted in 2010 after a faux trailer that came with Robert Rodriguez's half of the Grindhouse double feature sparked some interest among exploitation fans. And then the end of that first parody, there was a tease for a sequel, which inexplicably ended up in front of cameras and on the big screen in 2013 in the form of Machete Kills. It bombed at the box office hard, and while Mel Gibson was a fun addition to the cast, it started to feel like the joke had run its course. But hold on, because the teaser at the end of Machete Kills may become a movie too.
If you've taken the time to check out Machete Kills, then you know at the end there was a tease for the next installment, Machete Kills Again…in Space!. At this point, it's the only place Machete can go to get any more ridiculous than the franchise already has been, and franchise star Danny Trejo recently told Halloween Daily News (via ComingSoon) that it will actually be made as a film, "Robert and I are going to start to do Machete Kills [Again] in Space, so that’s going to be awesome, absolutely. We’re going to be working on it this year.” While there's a part of me that would love to see how crazy things get, I'm starting to be disinterested in another full feature film with Machete. Last we knew, Rodriguez's next project was a remake of Fire & Ice, but we'll see what happens. Do you want more of Machete?
