Trejo Say’s The Machete Sequel, Machete Kills, Has Already Been Written, And Why I Want To Jump For joy!

A sequel to Robert Rodriguez‘s B movie extension of the fake Grindhouse trailer, Machete, was less than successful – despite earning well over what it was made ($10.4 million) for, taking less than $40million at the international box office – hardly warranting a sequel. But as director Rodriguez heartily promised, sequels are still being planned — and according to lead Danny Trejo, a script for a sequel already exists. Whether it ever gets made is another story.

As a fan of Rodriquez’s work, I thoroughly enjoyed Machete despite the tame nature of the final product — but its a mainstream film..what do you expect. Theres only so much Grindhouse mainstream america can handle! And they got a guts full, literally. Bloody Disgusting heard from Trejo himself that a script was out there, entitled Machete Kills, and would be followed by a further sequel called Machete Kills Again as diagnosed by Rodriguez. 
“I asked him when he was going to write it and he says it’s written, so we can get started pretty quick,” reveals Trejo in Los Angeles. Although as a director, Rodriquez has a few projects to get done before a sequel can even be put forward — with shooting for Spy Kids 4: All The Time In the World still rolling on. Looking into the future, he seems to be committed to doing a Sin City 2 – which is still clocked in for a 2012 release – so accounting for that and Spy Kids, a sequel looks to be a long way in the distance. In the words of Trejo, “now everyone is waiting for Machete 2 so hurry up Robert Rodriguez!”
