Robert Rodriguez is due to begin filming Machete Kills very very soon, and some early casting possibilities have started to come in. The word is that Jessica Alba, who played Agent Sartana, and Michelle Rodriguez, who played Luz, are in discussions to return. As to whether they will be reprising their original roles, or taking on something different entirely is not yet known, but it would be great to see them back!
Obviously Danny Trejo returns as Machete, and Tom Savini also returns, and there are rumours of Mel Gibson, Tony Jaa and Michelle Williams all appearing. We will update you as soon as we here anything more.
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”
