Robert Rodriguez already has ideas for more Machete movies

Aug. 17, 2010by: Dave Davis

It's only a couple more weeks before Danny Trejo hacks through his problems in MACHETE, but his vengeful Mexican have more wetwork ahead of him.

At least, that's what Robert Rodriguez is planning. The director-writer-producer-caterer was thinking ahead with his grindhouse trailer-turned-feature: "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."

Make no mistake -- RR made Trejo a leading man and rounded up that eclectic cast because you apparently demanded it. "When I made that trailer, for years — more than SIN CITY 2 — people would say, 'when are you going to make MACHETE?' This movie is almost a response to the fans. If they hadn't been after me... about making the movie, I really don't think we would gotten around do doing it."

So whattaya say -- you want more MACHETE or would you rather have Rodriguez focus on his long list of other projects?

Extra Tidbit: Maybe this will make Trejo big enough to be a member of the team in Sly's next EXPENDABLES?

Hey Robert!

How about you start on Sin City 2 instead of planning sequels for a movie that hasn't even been released yet. Does he not remember how Grindhouse went?

We're already talking sequels? I'm more interested in the inevitable reboots, remakes and PG-13 animated versions.

No, not really.

Stallone used Trejo's name in early

Expendables promos; that's partially why I was disappointed in that flick.

If Machete rocks then bring on the sequel, but yeah I'd love to see Sin City 2.

I'll wait to see what Machete is like before asking for a sequel. I'm glad we're getting a hispanic action hero for once. Trejo is long overdue.

SIN CITY 2 FIRST PLEASE

Machete 2 could be cool if the first movies good but Sin City fans have been waiting for a very long time.

Make a mind-blowing Sin City 2 then tide us over for a decade with Machete flicks.

DO EET.

Shit, I knew this would be an "El Mariachi"-style franchise. And I can dig it. Rodgriguez can do so much with so little I got no problem with him churning out as many of his ideas as he wants.

Unless Mickey Rourke is signed on, I don't really care about a "Sin City 2."

Trejo has to be one of the oldest actors to graduate to full-pronged action star (if you can call it that).

MAKE FRIGGING "SIN CITY 2!"

Damn it, Robert. I'm a fan of yours, but if you don't make "Sin City 2" then you'll lose me as a fan of yours. Sorry....

i'm a huge fan as well but he'd never loose me! he is my inspiration for not giving up at succeeding in this industry! And i think the reason he has delayed it is because of the negative reaction financially to grindhouse..he could never of made it straight after that!

I'd prefer Sin City 2 and 3 over any Machete sequels. I think Machete will be an awesome movie, but I can't say I'd be disappointed if sequels for it never get made, unlike Sin City.

Danny Trejo needs to be in just one more movie. It's a prequel. And it's called "Johnny 600."

I think Trejo has a decent chance at being in the second 'Expendables' sequel should it come to be.

I also wish RR would start DOING something than merely talking about it. I understand he's promoting Machete by bringing up the concept of sequels, but I would really like it if he acted a little sooner on his promises.

hey give the guy a break, he acts a hell of a lot quicker than his bud tarantino! and perhaps any slowness at the moment might be due to the negative box office success of Grindhouse...though given that he's still soldiered on and Predators has done better than expected at the Box office!
