Hot on the heels of fruitloop Mel Gibson signing to play the film’s villain, comes news that MODERN FAMILY’s Sofia Vergara and DRIVE ANGRY’s Amber Heard are also in talks to feature as brothel owner Madame Desdermona and assassin Miss San Antonio respectively.
Heard impressed in debut horror flick ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE (2006) but hasn’t had a genre flick really worthy of her promise since, so here's hoping this unlikely sequel will be the exception. Vergara’s distinctive (some might say annoying, not me) comedy stylings should sit perfectly well in Machete’s heightened Grindhouse universe, and save her from movie dross like THE SMURFS and THE THREE bloody STOOGES.
In order to put names to faces should you not have aclue who we're going on about, here's two candid shots of the actresses just going about their daily bidness...
In other MACHETE KILLS news, is been confirmed that Michelle Rodriguez’s Luz and Jessica Alba’s Sartana are also returning. Meanwhile Michelle Williams continues to be rumoured, but we can’t see the award-winning actress touching this skeezy little project with yours!
So the cast’s all set, it’s just down to Rodriguez to come up with a script that will make us actually care this time around…
MACHETE KILLS starts shooting this month for a 2013 release.
