Machete Slices & Hacks Itself Some International Distro





Good news for fans abroad looking forward to the feature length version of one of the best mock trailers to appear in Grindhouse, Robert Rodriguez's Machete -- the flick has scored itself some overseas distribution!

Variety reports that Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has acquired most international distribution rights for the film. That's awesome for just about everyone but ... well, us here in the States. Please ... someone ... we must see this flick!

The film is still in production right now in Austin, Texas, with a cast that includes Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Rose McGowan, and Steven fuckin' Seagal.

The feature version of the trailer 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 (Jeff 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 (Lindsay 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.

Keep it right here for more.

Rodriguez has balls the size of his home state for being the only man in the game to give Hollywood the bird and make the movies he wants to make; with his own money and without any "suits" telling him what to do!

That's independent film-making at it's finest people. Like him or not every so-called "genre fan" should support this guy, both financially and critically, simply because ONLY people like him will change the current Hollywood mind-set and put film-making back in the hands of film-makers, instead of bean counters that push dribble like JENNIFER'S BODY or H2.

Kudos Mr. Rodriguez. Kudos!
