Rodriguez Teases that Machete is Still On Track

Ever since seeing Grindhouse, LOVING the fake trailer for the “Mexploitation” flick Machete with Danny Trejo, and THEN hearing they may make a full length movie, I feel like we’ve been strung along by Rodriguez.  Is this movie going to be made? Is this wishful thinking?

This past week at SXSW, Robert Rodriguez gave info about upcoming projects, and Machete was one of the items mentioned.

According to Slashfilm: Robert went on to insist that the long talked about feature length version of Machete will happen, and that he’s “got the script” and is “ready to go”.

It would be awesome to see a full Machete flick.  We’ll just have to continue to wait and see, but this is some pretty great news!
