The Right Mexican

Say what you want about Robert Rodriguez, the man does things his way, and he does them pretty well. I really like ‘Planet Terror‘, I thought it was easily the more enjoyable of the ‘Grindhouse‘ movies. And one can’t talk about ‘Grindhouse‘ without at least touching on the trailers in it, the best of which was the stand-up-and-cheer at the carnage ‘Machete‘. I mean really, ‘They fucked with the wrong Mexican”? That line alone is worth more than 50 overblown ‘Transformers 2‘ trailers.  So to my delight, the other day (I am a little behind, I know) slashFilm let us know that the long rumored ‘Machete‘ film starring the man, Danny Trejo himself, was next up for Rodriguez:

Robert Rodriguez just does whatever the hell he wants to do, it seems, and what he wants to do now is Machete. (Or, more properly, that’s what he has money for right now.) That’s the feature film version of the trailer that ran as part of Grindhouse, featuring Danny Trejo as a bad-ass Mexi-can who takes revenge on greedy business types. Despite recent rumors about the film actually going forward I would have bet that Nervewrackers is next, but at CineVegas last week Danny Trejo told Gordon & the Whale that the film starts production in five weeks. (As noticed by the ever-vigilant Playlist.) More details after the jump.

Of course no one told Machete that his outfit would be his undoing when he tripped on a small curb and was impaled 43 times.
