We’ve been wondering for a while about which of his numerous projects Robert Rodriguez would shoot next. Would it be the Predators sequel? The Jetsons reboot? Seems not. Instead we get what we need most: Danny Trejo doing Trejovian things.
In an interview with Gordon and the Whale, Trejo revealed that the film adaptation of Machete, a film born from one of those retro, tongue-in-cheek Grindhouse trailers, would start shooting very soon.
The bad news is that this same article confirms that Trejo will not have a role in Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables. So much for having a film that collects every living badass.
If anyone deserves their own ridiculous, over-the-top action movie it’s Danny Trejo. The notable Mexi-CAN has been a staple in shoot-em-up cinema for years, mostly because of his friendship with Bob Rodriguez.
Here’s the original trailer to get you all hopped up on testosterone. Bring it on, Trejo.
