Machete Kills is an upcoming action film, written and directed by Robert Rodriguez. It is the second in a series that started with the 2010 film Machete (presaged by a fake trailer in Grindhouse). Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez will be reprising their roles from the first film, and are joined by series newcomers Sofía Vergara, Lady Gaga, Demián Bichir, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding Jr., Alexa Vega, William Sadler, Marko Zaror, Tom Savini with Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson.
Rodriguez confirmed that April Booth, portrayed by Lindsay Lohan in the first film, would not make a return in this installment. The film will follow the titular ex-federale (Trejo) as he is recruited by the US President (Sheen) to stop an arms dealer (Gibson) from launching a deadly missile. The film is set to be released on September 13, 2013.
Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federal agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Mel Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet.
