The Wrap has recently reported that MACHETE KILLS, Robert Rodriguez’s follow up to his bloody hit, MACHETE, has been picked up by Open Road Films and will be released September 13, 2013. MACHETE KILLS is directed by Rodriguez, written by Kyle Ward, and stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Lady Gaga, and Charlie Sheen. Hhmmm. I hope this one doesn’t get too gimmicky. Here’s the plot crunch:
The film, which returns Danny Trejo as the eponymous hero and former Federale. This time around, the president of the United States recruits Machete to take down a revolutionary and an arms dealer hellbent on global destruction.
MACHETE KILLS is the second film in a proposed trilogy, and since the first MACHETE grossed $44 million worldwide on a $10 million budget, Rodriguez pretty much has free rein to indulge in more of these comically graphic films. The first MACHETE can be seen on LOVEFiLM (www.lovefilm.com).
Bring. Them. On.
