Just in time for EFM it was announced that Robert Rodriguez is teaming with producer Alexander Rodnyansky for the promised sequel to the 2010 action film Machete. Now that the Berlin market is in full gear, some early sales art has leaked online.
Titled Machete Kills (as teased in the closing credits of the first Machete), the film is the second in a planned trilogy. Danny Trejo returns as the title character. Ethan Maniquis co-directed the first film that starred Trejo as Machete is a Mexican, an 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.
