This story will eventually get along to news of a potential original film from Robert Rodriguez but first of all, we need to tidy up a lot of loose ends regarding his ever mounting pile of in-the-works sequels. He’s a franchisomaniac.
All of this info comes from the fact that a number of online press were last week invited down to the set of Predators and they duly squeezed Rodriguez for all they could. We’ll take it one franchise at a time.
Here’s the man on future Machete movies:
We always talked about making him a franchise character. Danny and I talked about it in ‘94…maybe Desperado that’s when I first mentioned the Machete character. So imagine that…he’s been bugging me since ‘94.
Add into the mix a bit of light, hype-building and pot-stirring by Machete himself, Danny Trejo:
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]
I’m sure we’ll see more Machete if it’s a hit and won’t if it isn’t. Of course, that’s like pretty much every other action picture, so… no news here.
How about Sin City 2, then? Is there something more solid on that front?
