But with both Rodriguez and Trejo's busy schedules, the question remains: When will Machete Kills go in to production?
We recently had a chance to speak with actor Danny Trejo while he was out promoting his latest film, Death Race 2, which will be released on Blu-ray and DVD January 18th, 2011. We took the opportunity to ask Trejo if he thinks that the Machete sequels will actually happen and if Rodriguez has finished writing the first script yet?
"I asked Robert when he is going to write Machete Kills and he said that it's already written. It was so successful and did so well that you don't want to get off a good horse."
Machete was released September 3rd, 2010 and stars Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson. The film is directed by Ethan Maniquis, Robert Rodriguez.
Machete Kills was released October 11th, 2013 and stars Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Demián Bichir, Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofía Vergara, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga. The film is directed by Robert Rodriguez.
