Machete is going into production!

Machete is a film by Robert Rodriguez. It is an expansion of a fake trailer Rodriguez directed for the 2007 film Grindhouse. It will star Danny Trejo (in his first lead role) as the title character. Then we get this news from Geektyrant.

" Robert Rodriquez is adapting his little Grindhouse trailer Machete into a full length Grindhouse film, and today blood-disgusting got an inside tip on who has been cast in the movie. First of all Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis are teaming up as co-directors and will start shooting July 29th.

Danny Trejo, will reprise the role he made famous.

Michelle Rodriguez, (Fast & Furious, Lost) will be playing a character named Luz.

Jonah Hill, (Superbad) has been cast in the role of Julio.

And this is the kicker, Robert De Niro, will be playing Senator McLaughlin. Yes, I said Robert De Niro.

This is only rumor until it is confirmed. Machete (Trejo) is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator (De Niro)."
