Danny Trejo to star in a movie called ‘Pendejo’

Danny Trejo to star in a movie called 'Pendejo'

Danny Trejo has joined the cast of “Pendejo,” a romantic comedy by writer/director Jairaj Walia, of Gr8 Dane Films.

Trejo (“Grindhouse,” “Machete,” “xXx”) plays the role of Pedro, the gangster father of the main character’s love interest, Jenny.

“Pendejo” which the filmmakers translate as “idiot,” but is far more vulgar, is about a spoiled party boy whose wealthy father orders to either take a low-level position at the family company or lose his inheritance.

Walia said that the movie addresses both the Indian and Latin cultures.

The cast includes Raja Fenske (Nickelodeon’s “Unfabulous”), Fernanda Romero (“The Eye”), Laksh Singh (“Little Fockers”), Marissa Caprielian (“Entourage”), Darlene Vazquetelles (“Kings of South Beach”) and Sevier Crespo (“Fast Lane”).

Bob Walia and Kim Walia are producing through Gr8 Dane. Crespo is producing through New Slant Productions.

Robert Rodriguez to direct new ‘Predator’ and ‘Machete’

Robert Rodriguez to direct new 'Predator' and 'Machete'

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.
