Even though Robert Rodriguez is busier than all hell, he still finds a way to deliver to his major supporters — genre fans. While he co-directed Machete – the 2010 feature film adaptation of his faux short included in the 2007 Grindhouse – with Ethan Maniquis, he’s telling THR that there’s a good chance that he’ll have the time to give Machete Kills his full attention.
“Currently I am directing it,” Rodriguez said during an interview about the Blu-ray release of his second feature film, Roadracers. “But we’re checking to see if there’s going to be the need for another director if I have to go off and do Sin City. I wasn’t sure what the timing on Sin City was or if I would have to step off to do Sin City at a certain point, depending on when Machete went. But Machete looks like it’s going to go pretty quickly so it’s possible that I will direct the whole thing.”
“I feel like I really need to do it,” he reiterated. “It’s so subjective I feel like I really need to get in there and do it. It’s just a lot of fun; it’s a really cool concept, and I think it takes it to another level in a way that’s compelling for me to go and do it myself.”
The 2010 film starred Danny Trejo as Machete, a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, and is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. While there were plenty of great moments, the film did feel a bit disjointed and lacked a punch. Hopefully Rodriguez giving his full attention will push it to the brink of gore-filled amazingness. Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez are in talks to return.
