In a brief interview with Moviehole, Danny Trejo reveals that he’ll also be starring alongside Zoe Saldana (who played the sexy blue alien Neytiri in Avatar, and also was a prominent character in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek) in Machete Kills, Robert Rodriguez’ sequel that will also feature Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard and Sofia Vergara.
“The sequel…is going to be a lot more over-the-top than ‘Machete,’” says Trejo adding a bit about the character’s infinite mojo. “We’ve got Sofia Vergara, who is a star in her own right, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Zoe Saldana – and guess what? I get to kiss all of ’em.”
He also jokes that if Rodriguez wants Trejo to return for a third Machete he expect to land a role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
“The sequel finds the titular ex-federale (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. Heard will play a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio.“
