Danny Trejo says Machete Kills in Space will begin filming this year

Just when you thought the legacy of GRINDHOUSE was a memory comes the news that MACHETE will kill...again! After two insane outings courtesy of Robert Rodriguez and Troublemaker Studios, the Danny Trejo exploitation franchise will get a third entry as teased at the conclusion of MACHETE KILLS. If you recall, the trailer took the Mexican vigilante off the planet and into space and that looks to be what the feature film will show.

When asked by Halloween Daily News at the Mad Monster Days in North Carolina, here is what Trejo had to say about the new film.

"Robert and I are going to start to do Machete Kills in Space, so that's going to be awesome. Absolutely. We're going to be working on it this year."

MACHETE KILLS upped the crazy factor compared to the first film and included roles for everyone from Lady Gaga to Mel Gibson. Taking the third film to the absolute limits of crazy by turning it into a scifi homage will make it pretty hard to top should a fourth film be on the horizon. Since Robert Rodriguez is not scared from pushing the limits in his self-produced films, I can only imagine what the movie will have in store for us.

Extra Tidbit: Thanks to John Walker for the heads up on the news!
