Machete movie greenlit!
Date : May 14, 2007     Writer : Clint Morris

Since “Grindhouse” made less than whatever-piece-of-shit-it-was-up-against-that-week this news will come as a bit of a surprise – but it does buy the Weinstein boys a couple of points with the fanboys upset over the whole Grindhouse debacle [and split].

Danny Trejo, who played the cjharacter of ‘Machete’ in the faux trailer that was wedged between the two “Grindhouse” movies “Planet Terror” and “Death Proof”, tells IESB that a feature-length film, featuring the character, has been greenlit.

Trejo says low box-office returns aside, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino are geniuses and they’re still pushing forward with a “Machete” movie.

“That’s the big one”, says Trejo, who’s appeared in near every one of Rodriguez’s movies. “We’re going to do Machete next, and Bob and Harvey Weinstein have already said, ‘Yeah, we’re gotta do it’.”

There were rumours that “Machete” was going to be a direct-to-video release – possibly released as a triple feature on the same DVD as the other two “Grindhouse” movies. Trejo says that’s no longer the case.

“No. They’re going to make it a movie – because of the audience response”, the actor, who also confirmed he’ll be a part of “Sin City 2”, says.
