Robert Rodriguez is teaming up with producer Alexander Rodnyansky to create a sequel to the 2010 action movie Machete. Titled Machete Kills, the film is the second of a planned trilogy with what in my opinion is the best movie tagline ever: “This time, they fucked with the wrong Mexican!”
“The fan response to the Machete character has been fanatical since his first appearance,” Rodriguez said. “Machete is truly a super hero and Machete Kills will be bigger and more ambitious than the first time.”
Filming is planned to begin in April and talks are currently underway for Danny Trejo to reprise his title role.
The new film finds Machete recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy.
