Some of the coolest ripple-effects of Quintin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s GrindHouse double features (Death Proof and Planet Terror) were the made up trailers shown in between the two movies. One of the more impressive and entertaining of those trailers was for a fake movie called “Machete” inspire by the pure bad-ass that Danny Trejo oozes.
That “cinematic release” is now becoming a reality. And whats more exciting are some of the pre-production details that are now coming out. So far Robert Rodriguez himself is directing and the cast as of now includes Trejo himself resuming his role with Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey along with … brace yourself… Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, and Don Johnson. Thrilling stuff. At Comic Con this year Rodriguez also announced the filming will be commencing very soon, so look forward to some interesting set shots soon. The original trailer from before Planet Terror is down below for your re-viewing pleasure.
