Originally posted by Inactive UserThe end credits of "Machete" said the character will return in a sequel called "Machete Kills". In a recent red carpet interview via Bloody Disgusting, titular star Danny Trejo says things are further along on a potential sequel to the film than you might expect:
"I asked (Robert Rodriguez) when he was going to write it and he says it's written, so we can get started pretty quick. We went all over the world with that movie and people kept having me sign these Machete action figures, it was a lot of fun. I don't even think Robert Rodriguez even expected that reception and now everyone is waiting for Machete Kills so hurry up Robert Rodriguez!" says Trejo.
Rodriguez has hinted before of a film trilogy with the third being titled "Machete Kills Again".

Though the script isn't finalized, Neeson claims that it's currently on a 10th draft and will begin shooting next March, promising <"some kick-ass stuff and a very human story to it".
Set to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the sequel is described by Neeson as "a whole revamping" and he is uncertain whether or not it will be produced for 3D this time around.
Sam Worthington will also return as Perseus, Gemma Arterton as Io and Ralph Fiennes as Hades with an unscheduled release planned for sometime in 2012.
WTF is that troll movie!???

Originally posted by Inactive UserSacha Baren Cohen, the funny man and character actor behind 'Borat' and 'Bruno,' is gearing up to play his most political role to date. The actor will be playing the role of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein.
Cohen is set to star in a comedy inspired by a book thought to be written by Hussein titled 'Zabibah and the King,' BBC reports. The book was a best-seller in Iraq back in 2000.
Paramount Pictures joked that the film would "tell the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed." Writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel, who all work for 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' have been signed on to write the script.
The film, titled 'The Dictator,' is scheduled to be released in theaters May 11, 2012. It will be directed by Larry Charles, who has worked with Cohen on both 'Bruno' and 'Borat.
Originally posted by Inactive UserWell this one came out of left-field. While attending a U.K. event to promote latest film Henry's Crime, Keanu Reeves revealed that the Wachowskis are planning two more Matrix movies.
According to AICN, Reeves met with the Wachowskis over Christmas, at which time they announced that they had "completed work on a two-picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of The Matrix as Neo."
The pair have already met with James Cameron to discuss the potential use of 3D, with Keanu claiming that they will be looking to shoot a movie that will revolutionise the action genre in the same way the original did.
The team will apparently talk again once the Wachowskis have finished work on their long-gestating adaptation of Cloud Atlas, but this is certainly exciting news for fans of the franchise.
Head here for the full story, plus news of Bill and Ted 3 and Reeves' next film, 47 Ronin.
