Robert Rodriguez to Swing Machete in June

Good news for those of us out there who thought the mock trailers included with Planet Terror and Death Proof were some of the best parts of the experience! The soon-to-be Danny Trejo classic Machete could begin filming as early as June.

According to Variety Rodriguez is eying a June start date in Austin for Machete, a film being produced by Overnight Productions, with Danny Trejo starring as the title character.

Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer and is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. How’s that for a mouthful?

Rodriguez has written the script and will direct the flick with his longtime editor Ethan Maniquis.

Check out the inspiration for this madness below! Now if only we can get Wright and Pegg to make Don’t!

    This is super good news, Machete, a new pulp film icon for the 2010’s.
    I love how the in the trailer it goes from the senator saying “what have you done with my wife and daughter” then cuts to Machete in a pool with two naked women, who could very well be the senators wife and daughter. Putting the grind back in Grindhouse!
