Synopsis:
Since its release in May 1979, Alien has garnered iconic status, reaping critical acclaim as well as box office success, and this May marks its much-celebrated 35th anniversary. Seamlessly blending the interstellar science fiction with dark, moody horror, Alien: The Official Movie Novelization allows fans to rediscover the unparalleled exhilaration and sheer terror of the legendary film.

A crew of spaceship Nostromo is suddenly woken up from a cryogenic sleep because of mysterious signals coming from an unknown planet and received by a ship computer. The astronauts land on the planet surface and go to investigate an alien spaceship where one of them is attacked by an alien which fastens itself on his face. When the crew returns to their ship and abandon the planet, nobody forefeels that the real horror will begin very soon…

Danny Trejo FINALLY Gives Update on Machete Kills Again… in Space!

Published

on

Back in 2010, director Robert Rodriguez unleashed Machete, his cheesy action extravaganza starring Danny Trejo as a Mexican vigilante seeking revenge on those who had double-crossed him. Based on a “fake” trailer promoted during Grindhouse, the film managed to attract an all-star cast consisting of Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jessica Alba, and Robert De Niro.

Having fared decently at the box office, a sequel, Machete Kills, was released in 2013. Sporting another unbelievable cast with Mel Gibson, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, and Lady Gaga… Machete Kills was a riot! My personal opinion: I love Machete, but the sequel scores a few higher points in my book; watching the film on the big screen was one of my all-time favorite theatre-going experiences.

Attached at the opening and end of the film was a teaser for the supposedly upcoming film Machete Kills Again… in Space. This trailer took the cheese factor to the next level, promising the return of Lady Gaga while insinuating that Justin Bieber would star as Bleep, an obvious spoof of Star Wars‘ C-3PO. Also featured was none other than Leonardo DiCaprio! Touted as the Man in the Silver Mask, DiCaprio would supposedly take over the role previously played by Mel Gibson (although this bit of casting notice includes the subtext: “actor subject to change”… hopefully not!!!)

It’s been over four years since we were treated with this trailer and Machete Kills Again… in Space hasn’t graced our screens yet. But according to Danny Trejo, there is still hope!

While promoting Dead Again in Tombstone in a recent Facebook Live Q&A, the From Dusk Till Dawn actor revealed, “We’re waiting. I’ve already talked to Robert [Rodriguez]. He says, ‘Yeah, I’m putting it together. Let’s start writing it.’ So I talked to Mel Gibson. I said, ‘Mel, hey, come on, let’s talk. Let’s do Machete Kills in Space.’ Mel goes, ‘I’m in. I’m ready. Tell Robert.’ So we’re gonna do it.”

Better hurry up! With the recent influx in all things Star Wars, there is simply no better time to send up that material than now.

News of the film has been slim since April 2015, when Trejo implied that shooting would begin later that year. In the time since, Rodriguez has become busy with the launch of his El Rey Network, as well as the upcoming film Alita: Battle Angel; not to mention, a number of projects lined up including a remake of Escape from New York… but here’s to hoping he still plans on sending Machete into space! And soon!

Back in 2015, Michelle Rodriguez was also quizzed about the film’s future, stating: “Just out of knowing Robert, I’m sure that if it was insinuated, that possibility looms. I don’t know when. But for sure. I think that he would not leave that door open if he didn’t plan on using it.”
