Robert Rodriguez has pulled off the Herculean task of getting the Predators (review here) franchise back on track, and if our new image gallery for his upcoming flick Machete is any indication of things to come, he’s looking to up the badass ante yet again!
The film stars Jessica Alba (Sin City), Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious), Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls), Cheech Marin (Once Upon a Time in Mexico), Jeff Fahey (“Lost”), Don Johnson, Steven Seagal (Under Siege), and of course Danny Trejo as the lead character. Look for it in theatres September 3rd, 2010.
The feature finds Machete (Trejo), a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double-crossed and on the run, Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger; Padre (Marin), his “holy” brother; and April (Lohan), a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
