To announce the start of principal photography on Machete Kills — the sequel to his 2010 Mex-ploitation movie, Machete — director Robert Rodriguez tweeted a photo of himself with actress Jessica Alba on the set. Now, Alba has taken to Twitter herself, tweeting several more photos of herself and title star Danny Trejo goofing around on the set, as well as photos of a surprised Rodriguez being serenaded by an all-female mariachi band in celebration of his birthday.
And, in case you missed it, here's the photo that Rodriguez tweeted earlier this week.
Here's the synopsis of Machete Kills:
The second film in the Machete trilogy finds Machete (Trejo) mourning the loss of his beloved Sartana (Alba), slain during a run in with the cartels. Machete is recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a cartel leader, Mendez the Madman (Demian Bichir), who threatens to fire a missile on the US. Machete foils Mendez's plot only to find that the missiles are remote wired to and triggered by the madman’s still beating heart. The only man who can disarm the missile is eccentric billionaire arms dealer, Luther Voz (Mel Gibson), who has hatched a plan of his own to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on Voz and his army in order dismantle his master plan for global anarchy.
Machete Kills does not yet have a release date.
