The 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”.
