Machete has a message for Arizona

Posted by LiveFor on May 5, 2010

Nothing like a minigun on a motorbike to get your point across.

Robert Rodriguez directs a great cast headlined by the mighty Danny Trejo. Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, and Steven Segal also star.

Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. 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 (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.


Due out on the 5th September 2010.

Danny Trejo and Vinnie Jones say Welcome to Graveland

Posted by LiveFor on April 30, 2010

Tammi Sutton is directing a cool sounding biker movie. She also wrote the script as an homage to Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone.

In an empty desert landscape, one woman takes up the classic role of the avenger, taking us on a motorcycle-driven journey of murder and mayhem with submissive male companions and murderous thugs along for the ride.

The Examiner have the news that Justin Kell, owner of the Hollywood’s “Glory Sales and Services” is building the bikes for the film and every motorcycle will be custom-built according to the personality of each character and the actor he plays.

Production Weekly had the news of Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators) and Vinnie Jones’ involvement. No word on who the female lead will be, but could turn out to be a cool modern day western. Filming begins in July.

Hobo With A Shotgun – Calling Rutger Hauer!

Posted by LiveFor on April 18, 2010

Hobo With A Shotgun was one of the fake trailers made for the Tarantino / Rodriguez Grindhouse project. Machete was another one that is being made into a feature starring Danny Trejo and is due out on 3rd September 2010.

Getting back to Hobo – the trailer was entered into a competition and won to take its place in the Canadian release of Grindhouse.

Jason Eisener begins production on the feature version of Hobo With A Shotgun on Monday.

The best news is that Rutger Hauer will be playing the Hobo. Let him bring on his Hitcher madness for this one.

Below is the fake trailer that started it all.

Death Race: Frankenstein Lives – Sean Bean, Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo join Luke Goss

Posted by LiveFor on February 16, 2010

Well I thought this was going to be a low budget straight to DVD prequel to Paul W S Anderson’s 2008 film, but casting news from STYD makes me think that they are chucking a lot of money at this one as a few famous faces are joining Luke Goss (Hellboy 2) and Tanit Phoenix. Filming began over the weekend in South Africa on Death Race: Frankenstein Lives.

Goss plays Carl “Luke” Lucas, a man framed by the mob for the murder of a police officer. Sean Bean will co-star as Luke’s old mob boss; Ving Rhames is the man responsible for giving the greenlight to the Death Race (he’s apparently a “Rupert Murdoch” type); Danny Trejo is Luke’s pal in prison and Frederick Koehler will reprise his role as “Lists.”

Danny Trejo’s stock is on the rise with a starring role in Predators and Machete this new Death Race film is shaping up to be better than the first one.

Machete – Danny Trejo talks sequels and De Niro

Posted by LiveFor on December 21, 2009

Robert Rodriguez’s Machete edges ever closer and Collider spoke to Danny Trejo about what the film was about and what it was like working with Robert De Niro.

Well uh…Machete kicks ass. It is a culmination of Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico…there’s even a little bit of From Dusk ‘Til Dawn in there. I think it’s gonna be one of his best. And I’m not just saying that cause I’m the lead, it’s just a great movie. I think everybody’s gonna walk away from that movie with some opinion. It’s a battle for our border, you know? People are really serious about what’s going on with the border, and it shows the negative side of both sides. Not just, we want everybody to cross or we don’t want anybody to cross. It shows the negative side of both sides. Everybody’s gonna be pissed off.

Get a bag of popcorn and just sit and watch and you go back to the 1960s.

When I first saw Robert De Niro on the set, he came up and his first words to me were, “Don’t leave me like this, homes.” You know, that was my line in Heat. And I kind of laughed and he said, “Man, Danny, I’m really proud of you. You’re the lead. This is it, this is you.” And I looked him right in the eyes and I said, “Can I get you some coffee, Mr. De Niro?” [Laughter] You know, cause that’s the guy. I couldn’t believe that Robert got De Niro. And then Jessica Alba, you know? And Lindsay Lohan. And Michelle Rodriguez, and Jeff Fahey, and Steven Seagal, and Cheech Marin. It just goes on and on. It was really hard like not just giggling, you know? I mean, when you’re working, just not giggling. You know, come on, grow up. But it was amazing, and that cast was amazing.

We want Machete, Machete Kills, and Machete Kills Again. [Laughter] That’s mine and Robert’s standards, you know? Every time I text him, he’ll text me back, Machete 2, coming up. [Laughs]

Below is the fake trailer from Grindhouse that started it all.

Machete – First look at Tom Savini

Posted by LiveFor on October 9, 2009

Tom Savini Machete image
Here is our first look at FX guru and genre favourite Tom Savini in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete.

Savini stars alongside Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Lindsey Lohan, Steven Seagal, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, Elise Avellan and Electra Avellan (as the Sexy Nurses) in the feature-lenth version of Rodriguez’s faux trailer made for Grindhouse.

I still find it mad that we are going to see De Niro, Lindsay Lohan and Steven Seagal in the same film.

Machete (Trejo) is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.

Bloody Disgusting had this and many other photos plus the synopsis below.

“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 (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.”

Holy Crap! Machete is going up against the Predators

Posted by LiveFor on September 27, 2009

The Punch Drunk Critics managed to speak to the always awesome Danny Trejo.

He updated them on Machete, Sin City 2, and even better the Robert Rodriguez’s produced Predators.

How cool is that?

Now if they could get a few more of the people Rodriguez has worked with in the past we could get an amazing Predator reboot – imagine Johnny Depp in it.
