Danny Trejo gives an update on the Machete sequel

12.03.2010

It may not have been a box office smash, but the modest budget of MACHETE compared to its haul (and impending home video release) was probably enough to justify a sequel.

Craggy leading man Danny Trejo is all set to sharpen his blades for another one, and is now waiting for filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. As Trejo tells B-D, "I asked him when he was going to write it and he says it's written, so we can get started pretty quick."

Indeed, Rodriguez was thinking about franchise possibilities with his grindhouse trailer-turned-feature, as he had this to say back before MACHETE even hit theaters: "Some people who didn’t die in the film actually did die, I just cut out their deaths. I wanted to save them for a sequel, but you actually see that they did perish. Where the movie will go next? I have a bunch of ideas for it. It’s all in the end titles. We have to make them, of course, MACHETE KILLS and MACHETE KILLS AGAIN. Once you put it out there, just like we did with the trailer, you have to make it."

Now according to Trejo, RR already has MACHETE KILLS on paper... so it's just up to him finding the time, money and an appropriately diverse group of famous actors to appear and/or be gruesomely killed.

Extra Tidbit: Trejo sure likes to work -- he has over a dozen movies listed with 2010 release dates on his seemingly endless IMDB page.

no need for it

I really loved the idea of machete and that everything is over the top but am i the only one who thought it was just a very boring movie, the expendables also not a very good movie i thought was entertaining as hell.

I liked Machete better than Expendables

so I'd be a lot happier about a Machete 2 than the rumoured Expendables sequel. You could tell the Machete cast was having a blast making it, and that vibe carried through to the audience.

The best part of Machete was seeing how the different parts of the fake trailer fit into the film. Since we've seen that, I'm not really sure what would be so great about a sequel.

Can anyone tell me what was so good about the first one? I hate the blatant setup for a sequel. PASS

AWESOME ... LOL

Just like the 80s, just fun and enjoyable, something that today's movie makers have forgotten!!! AS FOR SIN CITY 2, my answer -- that's too expensive to make now compare to Machete, etc!

MACHETE was the most awesome film of 2010 nothing even comes close!! Rodriguez is such a fantastic director and is the only person who will give us such awesome grindhouse style films.

He can't make Sin City 2 because the only actor that'll work with him twice is Danny Trejo.

fine. trejo's the only actor that'll work with him 48 times, though. i think that's at least fair to say.
