Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete Kills' is back on track after a potentially disastrous lawsuit threatened to shut down production entirely, and one aspect of the film we can all look forward to is the return of multiple characters from the first film. Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez will be reprising their roles, but it seems that 'Machete Kill'-ed Lindsay Lohan -- meaning she won't be coming back.
Danny Trejo's Machete is rarely -- if ever -- squaring off against a foe he can't handle, but that has changed with a lawsuit that has put the badass in danger of being shut down.
Overnight Productions, which produced the original 'Machete' as well as the sequel 'Machete Kills,' is looking to cut ties with Robert Rodriguez, director of both pictures, and is seeking $2 million in damages for various alleged wrongdoings. And this could well see 'Machete Kills' shelved for the foreseeable future.
We questioned at first whether Alexa Vega could handle a role in Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete Kills,' especially when that said role answers to the name of Killjoy. 'Spy Kids' doesn't exactly qualify as action movie experience, but as Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan remind us with their daily shenanigans, everyone has to grow up at some point... And boy, Vega did indeed grow up. We've got the official debut pic of her in 'Machete Kills.'
More than any other ‘Modern Family’ cast member, Sofia Vergara is capitalizing on the exposure of the hit sitcom to help transition into a full-fledged movie career. Yes, she’s choosing to appear in questionable films like ‘The Smurfs’ and ‘The Three Stooges.’ But they are stepping stones leading to more-effective genre efforts like ‘Machete Kills,’ where she’s playing a leather-clad dominatrix. See for yourself.
'Machete Kills' - the upcoming sequel to 2010's grindhouse-style action film 'Machete' - is currently filming in Austin, TX and Jessica Alba was there, reprising her role as U.S. Immigrations Agent Sartana Rivera. Alba was only on set for a few days but managed to post a first look at the film on her Facebook page.
