According to Variety, Mexican American director Robert Rodriguez is set to bring forth not one, but two films that are sure to make fanboys (like myself) gush.
The first is an expansion of his faux trailer “Machete” from the movie “Grindhouse” (he also directed the “Planet Terror” part of that double-feature).
The movie will star Danny Trejo (pictured) as what appears to be a Mexican agent who’s been double-crossed and is none too pleased about it.
Rodriguez has also penned a new “Predator” movie called “Predators.” He should excel as the creator of a “Predator” movie.
Both the “Predator” and “Alien” franchises need to be divorced from each other.
2004’s “Alien vs. Predator” was mediocre at best. 2007’s “Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem” was basically a b-movie, which is okay if you accept it as such. Both franchises are capable of so much more.
