holy crap! looks like that dude Robert Rodriguez's hella-tight Machete, which you'll remember as one of the fake movie trailers in Grindhouse, is about to become a real movie!
Rodriguez will co-direct with longtime editor Ethan Maniquis. this guaranteed bloodbath-to-be will star character actor Danny Trejo (above), Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez (Fast and the Furious, Lost) and Jonah Hill (Superbad). As big fans of Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo (i've been fiendin' for this since Desperado), we at ghettoManga are all straight GEEKIN' for this! according to Peter Sciretta at slashFilm.com, production begins within the next few weeks, and it isn't clear if it will be a theatrical or direct-to-video release. either way, i'll be first in line!
