The upcoming “Machete” film is based on Robert Rodriguez’s faux “Grindhouse” trailer.
Tagline: Yesterday He Was A Decent Man Living A Decent Life. Now He Is A Brutal Savage Who Must Slaughter To Stay Alive.

Plot: The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

Expect a 2010 release date

The film was based on the fake trailer featured before Robert Rodriguez’s double feature for Grindhouse, Planet Terror, which was co-produced by Quentin Tarantino and is also the producer on this film.

Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey and Cheech Marin who are featured in the fake trailer featured in Grindhouse, reprise their roles for this film as well. Tito Larriva, one of Robert Rodriguez’s closest friends and who’s acted in several films was featured in the trailer but at this point not confirmed to be in this film. Fahey was also featured in Planet Terror which was written, produced and directed by Rodriguez.

This film marks the second time that Robert De Niro and Quentin Tarantino have worked together. They previously worked together on Jackie Brown, which De Niro was part of the ensemble like this film and Tarantino wrote, directed and produced that film.
