The Second Cut Is The Deepest: ‘Machete’ Sequel Is A Go

They just keep f***ing with the wrong Mexican.

Robert Rodriguez is putting together a sequel to 2010‘s Machete, titled Machete Kills, with the hopes to begin filming in April. Deals are being worked out now to see Danny Trejo return as the gut-spilling avenger. Just whose guts will Machete use as a climbing rope this time? Well, in the sequel he is recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission only he can accomplish. A Mexican cartel leader has teamed with a billionaire who intends to destroy the Earth with a weapon in space. He’s just like James Bond but pockmarked.

Does that mean Machete is headed to space? Eventually. Machete Kills is actually the second film in a planned trilogy – or Trejology. The final film in the series will be titled Machete Kills Again… in Space. Now that’s film-making. (Deadline)
