The recent Grindhouse-revival of director Robert Rodriguez was always geared toward a specific niche with films like Death Proof and Machete. Of course, that probably didn’t do any favors for Machete Kills, the 2013 sequel to the 2010 splatterfest revenge thriller starring Danny Trejo, which came short of its budget during its theatrical run.
Nevertheless, there’s no need for fans to worry about whether or not there will be a third, because apparently it’s happening anyway according to forwarded news from Comicbook.com
via Halloween Daily News
. The direct-to-video Badass
trilogy star was on hand in North Carolina last weekend where he confirmed the third installation, stating, “Robert and I are going to start to do Machete Kills in Space, so that’s going to be awesome. Absolutely. We’re going to be working on it this year.”
Machete Kills Again In Space has its own mock trailer following the events from the second film which centered on Trejo in the title role opposite Mel Gibson to prevent the launch of a weapon in space. If you’ve seen the film, you’ll understand what the trailer was all about. Otherwise it will all seem just as packed with gonzo spectacle, outlandish spectacle and cinematic cheese as one could expect. After all, it’s all about the Grindhouse baby!
Trejo has a batch of films on the way, including Christian Sesma’s The Nightcrew and K. King’s Cyborg X, in addition to appearances in the second season of From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series on El Rey Network.
