NEVERTHRONERS! To your #got bunkers! This is going to be a rough one!
Robert Rodriguez is going to have a busy fall with films coming out in Sept. and Oct.
While Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is already set for release on Oct. 4, and now Machete Kills, another sequel from Rodriguez, is now set for Sept. 13. Danny Trejo is going for a second turn as ex-Mexican Federale Machete who is the man you call when you need the impossible done.
The first film was enjoyable, but seemed to not be able to decide if it was an homage to grindhouse films, or some sort of story with a thinly veiled message about the rights of illegal aliens. The follow-up can be whatever it wants, it just needs to pick one and stick with it.
The second film of the planned trilogy stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.View Press Release
