Danny Trejo and Robert Rodriguez are back at it again with Machete Kills, the sequel to the less engaging B-movie homage Machete Solves His Problems Via Listening and Compromise.

There’s not a lot to dissect here. Machete‘s angry, he wants vengeance, and he’s going to kill people.

OH! Also, Latinas in bikinis. A glaring oversight on my part. Apologies.

While this trailer for Machete Kills lacks the blood, guts, and innards-bungee jumping of the original, it does feature Charlie Sheen as President of the United States and Sofia Vergara with machine gun breasts. So what I’m saying is Robert Rodriguez has grown as an artist.

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)

Fans of blade-based violence and racially-insensitive humor have reason to celebrate. In an interview with Dread Central, actor Danny Trejo claimed that a Machete sequel, Machete Kills, was definitely in the works, and that director Robert Rodriguez has already written the script.

“I asked Robert Rodriguez when he was going to write Machete Kills, and he said (in his words), ‘It’s wrote,’” Trejo told the website.”Sin City 2 might have been pushed back behin Machete Kills. [laughs] Nobody cares about Mickey Rourke… [laughs].”

Trejo also dismissed criticism of Machete’s use of racially-insensitive humor.

“We did it as entertainment. What I loved was the sense of humor in it, in everything. So we kind of laughed at everybody, and that was what I loved about the movie.”

Added Trejo, “There has to be a sense of humor in everything otherwise… let’s do a documentary on prison.”

I don’t know if I agree. After all, it wasn’t really a documentary, but HBO’s prison drama, “Oz,” was pretty funny; like that episode where they fed the old Italian guy shards of glass. See, there’s humor in everything!
