"The fan response to the Machete character has been fanatical since his first appearance," Robert Rodriguez said. "Machete is truly a super hero and Machete Kills will be bigger and more ambitious than the first time."
The new film finds Machete recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy.
An April production start date is being eyed.
