Robert Rodriguez, perhaps a little unclear on the concept of a “novelty,” has announced to the denizens of Hall H at Comic-Con that there will be two more installments of Machete, turning the Grindhouse trailer-cum-movie into a bona fide trilogy. Where this falls in with Sin City 2 is anyone’s guess at this point.
Coming Soon reports that Rodriguez said to the crowd “Both sequels have been greenlit.” He has divulged that the second installment will be titled Machete Kills, while the third entry will offer the much more descriptive Machete Kills Again…In Space!
I don’t want to rush to judgement, but I feel that the third one might run a little campy. Rodriguez also offered that the space installment will feature “space babes” and lightsabers. Of course they will.
