Robert Rodriguez is working right now at completing Machette, his feature length expansion of his fake trailer from 2007’s Grindhouse and the publicity machine is already starting to crank up in anticipation of the film’s release next year. Coming Soon has spotted a new character poster for the film featuring Jessica Alba as Sartana, an ICE agent who is interested in talking with Danny Trejo’s titular former Mexican Federale. (Click on the image below for the full view.)
I have to say that I am still pleasantly surprised that Rodriguez has gotten this film off the ground, considering how poorly Grindhouse did at the box office. If Machette succeeds, will we see more of Grindhouse‘s faux trailers getting the feature length treatment? Ely Roth has stated wanting to do a full-length version of Thanksgiving. And I really want to see Nic Cage as Fu Manchu in Werewolf Women Of The SS!
And here’s the “original,” Not Safe For Work Machette trailer.
