The cast of Machete Kills continues to grow, with more cool but baffling men attached, and more and more sexy lady’s. The latest piece of eye candy to join the cast is Vanessa Hudgens, and it is clear that she is desperately trying to shake off her High School Musical reputation.
Recently the actress has been looking at much more adult themed films. Recently appearing in Sucker Punch, Hudgens has also recently signed on the appear in gritty indie Gimme Shelter and also serial killer flick Frozen Ground. There is also the chance she will appear in upcoming horror Spring Breakers.
However, joining Robert Rodriguez’ sequel is probably the most adult she can get so far, and her character name even hints at plenty of rather naughty stuff. Confirming on her own website, Hudgens said she will be appearing in Machete Kills as a character named Cereza which is Spanish for Cherry!
Machete Kills is directed by Robert Rodriguez, and written by Kyle Ward and Alvaro Rodriguez. The huge cast includes William Sadler, Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen, The Avellan Twins, Sofia Vergara, Edward James Olmos, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Zoe Saldana, Cuba Gooding Jnr, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens and of course Danny Trejo in Robert Rodriguez’s sequel which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
“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”
