What in the name of Lindsay Lohan is going on? Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills is racking up a large number of stunt cast members! The latest announcement is Lady Gaga as La Chameleon, which is Spanish for The Chameleon. Yep, 6 years of Spanish totally paid off! Maybe she works for President Charlie Sheen, or Amber Heard, or Sofía Vergara, or Mel Gibson, or Vanessa Hudgens? All legitimately cast in a non-stunt manner!
Latino Film Review seems to specialize in getting ahold of scripts before they are made and posting revieews, and they have done just that with Robert Rodriguez and Nimród Antal’s Predators, the Predator remake/sequel/something. Danny Trejo is slated to play one of the characters, who are kidnapped by the Predators and brought to their planet for a hunt. The review is in video mode, so click away to watch!
So says Variety. Based on one of the fake trailers during the Grindhouse film, Machete had Danny Trejo killing people and kissing naked chicks, so hopefully the film follows that winning formula. Rodriquez wrote the script and is codirecting with Ethan Maniquis. No word on how Rose McGowan will be shoehorned in.
The official word is in on the story mentioned before about Robert Rodriguez rebooting Predator.
AICN has a quick interview where Rodriguez explains that he got the job thanks to a script treatment called Predators that he wrote years ago.
So it’s happening. Just wait until Aliens is rebooted, and then the rebooted franchises have their own crossover, then the reboots fight the originals, and also there is a T-Rex for some reason. No word on how Rose McGowan will be shoehorned in.
