I dunno, last I heard they were only recently considering making that trailer, which was originally meant to be fake, into a movie. Maybe a while yet before it comes out, if it comes out. But, yeah, looks like some nutty shit.
I read in empire that apparently the guy who plays machete is trying to make rodriguez do the film, as there was a good response from the trailer. There may be hope yet. As far as i know rodriguez is working on Sin City 2
ohh god i opened this thread hoping to talk about hazards tune
no really tho...my guess is the Grindhouse film didnt do to well, so they put it on hold. Does look like an awesome piece of work. Infact everytime i see the actor who plays machete, i say MACHETTEEEEEE!!!!
Machete is an upcoming feature by Robert Rodriguez. It is an expansion of a fake trailer Rodriguez directed for the 2007 film Grindhouse. It will star Danny Trejo as the title character. Although originally announced to be released direct-to-DVD as an extra on the Planet Terror DVD, the film is now being produced as a theatrical release. sourced from wikipedia
