Amber Heard, the mega-hottie from All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Zombieland, The Stepfather, The Ward and Drive Angry, is in talks to become the latest femme fatale to join the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Machete Kills, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox, says Variety.
Danny Trejo stars alongside returning thesps Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez and series newcomers Mel Gibson and Demian Bichir.
Pic, which starts production this month in Heard’s hometown of Austin, Texas, “finds the titular ex-federale (Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop an arms dealer (Gibson) from launching a deadly missile.” Heard will play a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio.
Robert Rodriguez has stated that he’ll like to solo-direct the sequel based on his faux trailer included in Dimension’s 2007 Grindhouse.
