Remember when a third Machete movie was on the cards? That was way back in 2013, but now it looks as if plans are still afoot for Machete to return to the big screen.
The titular star himself, Danny Trejo, has indicated that Machete Kills Again... in Space is still on the table. Speaking to I Could Never Be, Trejo enthused, “Robert’s working on it, it’s gonna be unbelievably crazy.”
Robert, of course, is writer/director Robert Rodriguez. When Trejo was then asked on when we may see Machete once again doing what he does best, he explained, “Robert has his own timetable for doing stuff. I know he’s working on a big movie right now.”
Up next for Rodriguez is his Alita: Battle Angel adaptation, which heads to screens in February. If and when the Machete franchise returns, we’ll have to wait and see, but these latest words from Trejo certainly seem positive if you’re a fan of the two movies to date.
As ever, expect more on Machete and possibly Machete Kills Again… in Space if and when we hear anything more.
