Robert Rodriguez to begin filming "Machete" - but where are the hot chicks?
"ROBERT RODRIGUEZ has reportedly assembled an all-star cast for his new GRINDHOUSE spin-off, including ROBERT DE NIRO, JONAH HILL, and MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ.
The movie is based on a fake trailer that appeared before Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 2007 Grindhouse double-bill.
Two years on, the filmmaker has decided to turn it into a full-length film.
Danny Trejo will reprise his role as Machete, a madman hellbent on revenge, and De Niro will play a senator who double-crosses him."
I LOVE Robert Rodriguez's movies...LOVE THEM. I loved Grindhouse, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Desperado--all of them. The casting of Michelle Rodriguez (no relationship, as far as I know) troubles me, though. In all of Robert's previous films, he's had extremely sizzling hot actresses; and no offense to Michelle, but well, not so hot. Compared to Salma Hayek, Marley Shelton, Rose McGowan, and the stunning Rosario Dawson?
Wow. Come ON, Robert!
