Steven Seagal possibly in MACHETE
First it was reported that The Ponytailed Warrior was in Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE. Then that rumor was hastily denied by his reps. Now it is being reported that Seagal is, in fact, in talks to be in the film, should "conditions" allow it. Conditions most likely meaning that there be a minimum of 100 neck breaks and sidekicks averaged by Seagal for every 30 minutes of screen time.
If this turns out to be confirmed, that would place Seagal alongside the likes of Robert De Niro, Jonah Hill, Michelle Rodriguez, and the man, the myth, the Machete himself, Danny Trejo. And if this turns out to be confirmed, the level of testosterone in this film may begin to rival THE EXPENDABLES, a film that both Seagal and Trejo were also once rumored to be a part of.
If you are unfamiliar with MACHETE, it all began as a faux trailer within Rodriguez/Tarantino's double feature GRINDHOUSE. Fast forward two years later, and the tale of the ex-Federale out for blood after being betrayed by his former boss will get its own film come 2010. Check out the trailer featured in GRINDHOUSE HERE and our interview with Trejo HERE in which he talks a little bit about MACHETE.
