Hot off his first Oscar nomination for his perf in A Better Life, Mexican thesp Demian Bichir (pictured inside; “Weeds”) is in negotiations to join Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, which Rodriguez hopes to direct solo this coming June, says Variety.
“The sequel 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. Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba are also in talks to star.
Twentieth Century Fox will release the sequel.
