There is no doubt that Robert Rodriguez makes controversial casting choices for his Machete movies. The first flick had troubled stars like Lindsay Lohan and Steven Seagal. And now it seems, he may be courting Mel Gibson for its upcoming sequel.
According to Latino Review, Mel could be joining Danny Trejo and company for Machete Kills. There are also rumors that Oscar nominee Michelle Williams is attached to the project, though nothing has been confirmed.
As of right now, there are no details on which roles Rodriguez has in mind for the two stars. Danny did let it slip that Machete may be going to outer space in this latest outing, so that opens the door to a lot of possibilities (alien bounty hunters perhaps?).
Either way, it will certainly help bring attention to the movie to have Gibson involved. The only question is, is it the kind of attention they want to attract?
