machete leal

You can't text in space (not yet anyway), making it the perfect place for Danny Trejo's Machete to get his slaughter on. But alas, we're just going to have to wait for Machete Kills Space!, because first the suddenly ubiquitous Trejo (he has two movies out on DVD this week) is re-teaming with director Robert Rodriguez for Machete Kills, the second film in a planned trilogy.

Shooting is set to begin in April and Rodriguez says he expects much of the cast to return, presumably skincluding Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and maybe even Lindsay Lohan, all among the lucky few left alive at the end of Machete (2010).

According to Deadline, the plot for Machete Kills goes like this:

"The new film finds Machete recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy."

We're just wondering how they're going to top Machete's Anatomy-Award winning scene where a nude Mayra Leal pulls a cell phone from her chocha. Perhaps that satellite should orbit Uranus?
