Director Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” already had an eclectic cast. Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen are all confirmed. Now the director has revealed Lady Gaga is in the film as a character called La Chameleon. He tweeted that he just finished working with her and was blown away.
Danny Trejo reprises his role as ex-federale Machete. You may have gathered from the title that he’s really good at killing people. “Machete” was an over-the-top grindhouse commentary on the immigration debate. In the sequel, Gibson is an arms dealer in control of a missile. The U.S. government has hired Machete to stop the launch. He ended the first movie as a fugitive from justice, so I bet there’s an offer of amnesty for the countless murders he committed.
During the end credits of “Machete,” it teased two sequels, “Machete Kills” and “Machete Kills Again.” A lot more bad guys are going to be short of limbs by Trejo’s hand, obviously.
