Frickin’ LOVED Grindhouse from last year. Arguably the most fun parts of the film were the faux trailers. One of the more popular of these ridiculous, over the top trailers was Danny Trejo in Machete and we’ve been hearing rumors for a while now that a real, feature length film about Machete is going to be made. But rumors and speculation aren’t always something we can count on.
But today the rumor moved its status to a real possibility. Bloody-disgusting, via our good friend Richard recently had a quick chat with Trejo, who insists that Robert Rodriguez is indeed getting the ball rolling on Machete and will not only be producing, but also directing. What’s most interesting is that Trejo breaks the news that studio Dimension plans on making the Machete story a full fledged trilogy!
If this is accurate, I couldn’t be happier. With the box office blunder that was Grindhouse and the critical slamming of the fantastic Doomsday (our review), I would’ve thought that the studios would be leery of churning out more of these campy, gore fests. But apparently Dimension and Rodriguez have no fear and will continue making what they want. Boss.
