Charlie Sheen is part of the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming film ‘Machete Kills’, though he’s not listed as his stage name “Charlie Sheen” for the movie, but his birth name, Carlos Estevez.
Robert Rodriguez has already begun shooting on ‘Machete Kills’, the sequel to Machete. Much like the first film, Machete Kills is cast with a mix of Rodriguez regulars and a few names that seem out of place. I was surprised to learn that Lady Gaga will be in the new Machete, and if you last saw Alexa Vega in Spy Kids… she’s all grown up now.
Mel Gibson’s psycho behavior may have alienated a lot of people in Hollywood, but there’s always a place where outcasts and has-beens and wash-ups are welcome, and that’s in the world of Robert Rodriguez grindhouse films. Word has it that Mel Gibson has been cast in the next Machete movie called ‘Machete Kills!’
Writer and director Robert Rodriguez spoke at San Diego Comic Con yesterday to talk about some of his future projects, including Sin City 2, two more Machete movies and a movie based on Frank Frazetta’s Fire and Ice.
If you saw Machete, you should remember a very titillating scene in which Jessica Alba is buck-ass naked in the shower, obscuring the important bits with her arm and her leg. As it turns out, that nudity was completely computer generated.
More than any other movie this year, I’ve been looking forward to seeing Machete like a kid looks forward to the mountain of presents under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning. Ever since I first saw the fake trailer in the middle of Planet Terror and Death Proof, I’ve been dreaming of the moment that Machete made it to the big screen for real. And now that it’s here, I’m not disappointed in the least. Machete is easily my favorite movie of this summer, with one of the most unique and memorable protagonists that Hollywood’s seen in a long time.
Machete. It opens this Friday, September 3rd. If these two red band clips from the movie (about 6 minutes total) are any indication, this thing will definitely live up to every one of the outlandish expectations I have of this film. Wow. Just wow.
