Due to begin production later this month in Texas, Machete Kills is the upcoming sequel to Robert Rodriguez’s OTT Mexploitation kill-fest (which, judging from our review, was nothing if not fun), and has just secured a deal to see Michelle Rodriguez return as Luz.

With Danny Trejo also set to return as the titular ex-Fedrale (who will wind up this time working for the US government), Machete Kills will see the pair joined by Braveheart himself, Mel Gibson (who’s now signed on to play arms dealer Luther Voz), and Oscar-nominee Demian Bichir (A Better Life) when it’s released on an as yet unconfirmed date next year.
