ComingSoon.net




20th Century Fox has set a September 3 release date for Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis’ Machete, starring Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal. Labor Day falls on Monday, Sept. 6, which gives the movie a four-day opening weekend.

The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

ROBERT RODRIGUEZ

Cool interview with ROBERT RODRIGUEZ in which they touch base on the status of SIN CITY 2:

“We still talk about doing that as early as later next year. I haven’t gotten to that yet.”

On the chances of it actually happening and if there is a script from FRANK MILLER?

“I can’t say no, because I don’t know it’s no. I know Frank wants to do it. I know I want to do it. It’s always sort of a ‘time permitting’ kind of thing. But it’s not like I can tell you definitely we’re starting . It’s not my next picture, I know that. It doesn’t mean that it’s not the picture right after ’cause that’s still a possibility. There has been a script since 2007.”

Hot on the heels of the absolutely dreadful one-two suck-punch of FANTASTIC FOUR (2005) and its even more abhorrent sequel, FANTASTIC FOUR 2 (2007) comes news of FOX plans to reboot the entire franchise:

While Disney lays down a $4 billion bet on the future of Marvel’s superheroes, 20th Century Fox has already begun overhauling one of its big Marvel franchises, “Fantastic Four,” to take the property beyond the two films already made.

Akiva Goldsman has been hired to oversee the reboot as producer. Michael Green, the co-exec producer of TV’s “Heroes” who co-wrote “Green Lantern,” will write the script for the new “Fantastic Four.”

THRALL WORLD observes that the only remaining problem is that FOX is still involved…
