Amber Heard Joins Machete Kills

2 Comments

Machete Kills (2012) Movie PosterWith Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba providing the brunette eye candy, looks like Robert Rodriguez decided a little blonde sex appeal was in order. Amber Heard, one of Hollywood’s more traditionally sex appeal-capable actress, has joined the cast of “Machete Kills”, the sequel to Rodriguez’s 2010 splatterific flick “Machete”.

The sequel will return Danny Trejo in the titular role, an ex-Mexican cop who crosses the border and runs afoul of some racist Texan bad guys. In the sequel, Machete is recruited by the U.S. Government to track down a gun runner bad guy name Luther Voz (to be played by Mel Gibson!) who is set to unleash a deadly missile that will ignite a war.

Heard, last seen in John Carpenter’s “The Ward” and opposite Johnny Depp in “Rum Diary” (not to mention the pryotechnic-filled “Drive Angry”) will play “a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio.” Yeah, I think she can swing that.

Curiously, there were earlier rumors that Michelle Williams was in talks for a role in “Machete Kills”. I wonder if this is that role?

“Machete Kills” will shoot this year for a 2013 release.
