Death Race 3: Inferno comes to Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand tomorrow, January 22, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. To that end, I recently sat down with star Danny Trejo to talk about his role in the film. We touch on a variety of subjects, such as the “Four B’s” referenced in the headline and why he couldn’t stop saying “Thank You Jesus” while filming the upcoming Machete Kills.

Repentant convict Carl Lucas (Luke Goss) — aka Frankenstein— is a legendary driver in the brutal prison blood sport known as Death Race. Only one victory away from winning freedom, Lucas is plunged into his most vicious competition yet: the first ever Desert Death Race. Through South Africa’s infernal Kalahari Desert, Lucas is pitted against ruthless adversaries and powerful forces at work behind the scenes to ensure his defeat. Also, starring Danny Trejo and Ving Rhames, Death Race 3: Inferno is an insane, action packed thrill-ride.

Inspired by Roger Corman’s cult classic Death Race 2000, the film is directed by Roel Reiné (Death Race 2, Scorpion King 3) and produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, as well as Mike Elliott (Death Race 2, The Eye). The film stars Luke Goss (Death Race 2, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, Blade 2), Danny Trejo (Death Race 2, Machete, “Sons of Anarchy”), Ving Rhames (Death Race 2, Mission: Impossible franchise, Pulp Fiction), Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II, “Heist”), Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2, “Femme Fatales”), Fred Koehler (Death Race 1 & 2, “Lost”) and Robin Shou (Death Race 1 & 2, Mortal Kombat).

    Danny is awesome! i also can’t wait for MACHETE KILLS!

  • DeathValzer

    Danny seems like an awesome, easy-to-talk to guy and the lucky bastard gets to ‘make love’ to Amber Heard. Damn i gotta be an actor!

    • Beezle2112

      I still think he paid Robert Rodriguez off. ‘Hey, how much to put some time in with Amber? That much? Crap. I better call Death Race 3 back and tell them I’m in to cover your cost.”

    Whilst I do love Danny Trejo, that alone isn’t nearly enough to drag me to see Death Race 3 (or Machete Kills). Did anyone else see his turn as the pervy janitor in Modern Family? Brilliant!
