Machete Sequel Script Already Written
Posted 12.03.10 by Ryan
For those that might have missed director Robert Rodriguez and co-director Ethan Maniquis' Machete the ending teased two possible sequels: Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again. While the sequel titles seemed like nothing more than amusing hubris used to end the movie, actor Danny Trejo told The Press Association that a sequel has already been written.
"I asked [Rodriguez] when he was going to write it and he says it's written, so we can get started pretty quick," said Trejo, who admitted that both he and Rodriguez were surprised by the positive response to the movie.
We went all over the world with that movie and people kept having me sign these Machete action figures, it was a lot of fun. I don't even think Robert Rodriguez even expected that reception and now everyone is waiting for Machete 2 so hurry up Robert Rodriguez!
Machete opened in September to mixed reviews and made $37 million worldwide on a $10.5 million budget. Rodriguez is already working on Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, with Sin City 2 possibly the next one according to Rodriguez, and potentially an adaptation of Deadpool after that, Rodriguez may be too busy to direct another Machete anytime soon, though like Predators, Rodriguez could simply write and produce.
