Here we have some more possible casting news for Machete Kills. Just yesterday we announced that Michelle Rodriguez would officially be returning to the fold to do what she does best, kick some freaking ass while still looking as sexy as ever.
Today, Variety is reporting that Demian Bichir (A Better Life) is currently in negotiations to star in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills. At this time there is no word as to what character he could play.
“Machete Kills,” which starts production this month in Texas, finds the titular ex-federale (Danny Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico’s leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a missile. Jessica Alba is also expected to return for the sequel, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.”
Stay tuned for more casting updates on this one.
