According to Cinemablend, Robert Rodriguez has announced that he is planning a direct to video sequel to the upcoming film Grind House.
The spin-off would be based on the character of ‘Machete’ (Danny Trejo), a character that doesn’t so much appear in the film [s] as he does in one of the fake trailers created for the movie.
If you’ve seen any of the kickass trailers for Grindhouse, then you’ve seen Trejo as Machete, a bad ass dude with, well, two machetes. He is doing a Machete spin-off movie, and it’s likely going to be direct to DVD. Rodriguez seemed pretty adamant about this, as if the film is already a done deal.
