Man, Robert Rodriguez sure knows how to cast’em. On the same day that he added Amber Heard to the ever-growing “Machete Kills” harem, Rodriguez and company are now talking with Sofia Vergara to join up.
Vergara, currently bewitching American men everywhere on ABC’s “Modern Family”, will play “the leather-clad Madame Desdemona, whose Mexican harlots have information that Machete needs.” (Heard, in case you were wondering, is playing a lethal assassin.)
“Machete Kills” finds Danny Trejo once again back as the Mexican ex-cop, now working for the U.S. Government to stop a crazed Mel Gibson from starting a war. Oh, Mel, you crazy wackadoo, you.
Besides Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba are also expected back, and I’m guessing a lot of other people who survived the first movie, which, frankly, isn’t that many.
After producing, co-writing and co-directing the first movie, Rodriguez will direct the sequel by himself from a script by Kyle Ward. Shooting is expected to commence later this month down in Rodriguez’s home turf in Texas.
