Rodriguez and Trejo In June Start Wielding MACHETE!!

I am – Hercules!!
They just fucked with the wrong Mexican!! I looks like “Machete” will soon be sliced onto more than a single reel! The unexpectedly deadly day laborer first introduced in my favorite mock “Grindhouse” trailer will now serve as the title character in a feature expected to start shooting in June. Danny Trejo, who played the title character in the pretend trailer, returns to headline the motion picture. Robert Rodriguez, who created the trailer, wrote the feature's script and will co-direct with longtime editor Ethan Maniquis. Variety has the premise:
Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.
Will "Lost" star Jeff Fahey reprise his role as the state senator? That's one question not answered in the Variety story on the matter found here.
