Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

« on: August 12, 2009, 08:48:25 AM »

The best part of Tarantino and Rodriguez's Grindhouse movies for me was the trailer for Machete. It's been posted here already that Rodriguez has decided to actually make the movie. Filming has apparently begun -- Yay! Thumbup

The casting looks awesome for the movie. From the article, posted here because the source article is likely to be gone soon:

"For the full-length movie, Rodriguez has assembled one of the most eclectic casts ever: Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson and Lindsay Lohan. They will join the stars of the original trailer: Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey and Cheech Marin.

In the movie, Machete (Trejo), a former Mexican Federales, is hired to assassinate a corrupt senator (De Niro). But then he is double-crossed and pursued by a government agent (Alba). Lohan plays a gun-wielding socialite who comes to Machete's aid, and Seagal plays a drug lord from his past. Filming has already begun in Austin, TX, and it will most likely hit theaters next year."

Looks like this could be a ton of B-movie goodness if done properly.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
