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.'
'Machete Kills', Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to his 2010 Danny Trejo vehicle, will be released in 2013 and now we the first official photo from the movie. Take a peek at Amber Heard and a very lucky Trejo above.
We've already told you about 'Sin City 2' and Machete Kills' (which just landed Mel Gibson), so you would think that Robert Rodriguez would have a full plate. Nope, he's gone and lined up a third project: 'Fire and Ice' - a remake of the Ralph Bashki/ Frank Frazetta animated film.
Mel Gibson’s attempts at resurrecting his career after a few highly-publicized meltdowns have been rocky, at best. Jodie Foster’s ‘The Beaver’ bombed. Recently, Warner Bros. passed on a screenplay Gibson acquired from ‘Basic Instinct’ writer Joe Eszterhas. But a celebrated cult director would like to lend Gibson a helping hand by casting him in a potential sequel.
With Frank Miller's source material offering a number of opportunities, it's shocking that it's taken Robert Rodriguez this long to follow up 'Sin City' with a sequel. Well, the wait is over, and it looks like 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' will start shooting this summer.
Speaking at this year's SXSW film festival, Robert Rodriguez promised that the long awaited sequel to 'Sin City' will shoot this summer, following his directorial duties on another sequel: 'Machete Kills.' But he's been saying that for years. Will it actually happen this time?
