A few days ago, a scooper told Bloody-Disgusting that Jonah Hill was going to be in director Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” along with Robert De Niro and Michelle Rodriguez. Immediately, the news spread around the net with everyone being very positive. Unfortunately, it might have been a bit too soon.
That’s because a few hours ago, I sat down with Jonah Hill as he was promoting director Judd Apatow’s new movie “Funny People” and he told me he hasn’t even read the script yet. He went on to say all he’s had is a phone call with Robert Rodriguez and he is actually planning on reading the script tonight to decide whether or not he wants to do the project. Hit the jump to watch what he said:
Collider: Are you doing “Machete”?
Jonah: I haven’t read it yet. I love Robert Rodriguez. He called me today. He called me and said I’d like you to be in “Machete” and sent me the script and I have to read it tonight. So that was a little premature on their part to release that. But I’m definitely considering it. I have to literally read the script to decide whether I’m going to do it or not.
