The other day we brought you news that Amber Heard was in talks to join Robert Rodriguez’ sequel, Machete Kills. Well, those talks have now become a something much better, Heard has signed on to play a role in the film! Not only that, Colombian beauty Sofia Vergara (pictured above) has also signed up to appear in the film, adding some real spice to the cast. With these two, and Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez both returning, the cast of Machete Kills is turning out to be very sexy indeed.
Vergara (Modern Family, The Three Stooges, New Years Eve) will play Madame Desdemona, a leather clad brothel owner whose harlots are holding some key information. Heard (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, The Ward, Drive Angry), who we reported might be playing is a villain, is indeed being cast as a villain and she will be playing the role of assassin Miss San Antonio.
The girls will be joining the already cast Danny Trejo as Machete alongside Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Tom Savini and Demian Bechire.
Robert Rodriguez will be directing the sequel, written by Kyle Ward, and the director has even teased that the third film will be called ‘Machete Kills Again.. In Space” Ha, awesome!
“The new film finds 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”
