The faux trailer that adorned the beginning of Planet Terror, the Robert Rodriguez directed segment of 2007’s Grindhouse, entitled Machete, is getting its own movie. Whether it will be a straight to video (STV) release or see the light of day is uncertain. What is certain is that the movie will be released in some format this year.
I had heard when Grindhouse had completed filming that Rodriguez had shot 40 minutes to maybe an hour of footage for his Machete trailer and only needed a little more for a full-fledge movie.
I guess he got around to completing it after his Barbarella remake fell through because of casting issues. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see it. Now if they would only make complete film for Edgar Wright’s Don’t trailer.
