It’s official as Michelle Rodriguez (Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Retribution, Battle: Los Angeles) is officially set to reprise her role in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, says Variety.
Machete Kills, which starts production this month in Texas, “Finds the titular ex-federale (Danny Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico’s leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a missile.” Jessica Alba is also expected to return for the sequel, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Robert Rodriguez hopes to fully direct Machete Kills, based on his faux trailer included in Dimension’s 2007 Grindhouse.
