Danny Trejo Says Another Machete Film in the Pipeline

by: S. Scott Stanikmas

I remember seeing Grindhouse in theaters and loving it, fake trailers and all. I especially dug the Machete trailer and was excited when I found out it was going to get made into an actual film. While not perfect it was a decent enough film. When a sequel was made, I winced a little bit. One film was okay, but this wasn’t something that screamed “FRANCHISE.” But here we are with Danny Trejo, Machete himself, telling us that the third film in the series is currently in the works.

Trejo talked to Halloween Daily News and said the following:

Robert and I are going to start to do MACHETE KILLS IN SPACE, so that’s going to be awesome. Absolutely. We’re going to be working on it this year.

Now, Rodriguez does have some other stuff going on. He’s got his From Dusk Till Dawn series on El Rey (which Trejo is a part of for the second season) as well as his longtime dream project of Frank Frazetta’s Fire & Ice. But he has been known to set aside dream projects for a while. Look at how long it took to get the second Sin City film.

Rodriguez is known to shoot films rather quickly though. If he can get the money up for the film, I don’t see why we couldn’t see another Machete film soon. Whether it goes to theaters or Straight-To-DVD/Blu-Ray is another story.
