It was gonna be one heck of a tough job to top yesterday's 'Machete Kills' casting news especially as we had the joy to report that the sexy Avellan twins were set to return for the Robert Rodriguez helmed action sequel. But still we do have the pleasure of bringing news that talented perfomer William Sadler -below ('The Mist') has signed up for a role. The details of the part are unknown at this time. Sadler who has perfomed in endless flicks such as 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Die Hard 2' and 'Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight' but for me his best performance thus far was his comedic role as the Grim Reaper in 1991's 'Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey'. Jessica Alba ('Sin City'), Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution'), Amber Heard ('Drive Angry'), Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana ('Avatar'), Edward James Olmos ('Dexter'), Mel Gibson and Demian Bichir are all set to star in this new ensmble Grindhouse project.
"The new film finds Machete (Trejo) recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy."
