Sin & “Machete” Sequels Film This Year

Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has revealed to Risky Biz Blog at SXSW last night that he’ll shoot both the “Machete” and “Sin City” sequels this year.

“Machete Kills” will begin shooting next month and “Sin City 2” will likely kick off filming in the Summer, which would indicate both would be heading for a likely 2013 release.

Rodriguez has also formed the production label Quickdraw Animation which has two films in the works – an untitled family movie, and the new version of the anthology feature “Heavy Metal”. Both have finished scripts and are moving into pre-production.
