Robert Rodriguez’s MACHETE Gets Labor Day Release

     April 16, 2010


20th Century Fox has set a September 3rd release date for Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, Variety reports.  Machete stars the always badass Danny Trejo as a Mexican ex-Federale out to hunt down the corrupt politician who betrayed him.  Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Lindsay Lohan also star in the film, which was written by Rodriguez and directed by Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis.  The film was produced by Robert Rodriguez, Elizabeth Avellan, Rick Schwartz, Aaron Kaufman and Iliana Nikolic.  The Labor Day weekend release date puts Machete up against Born to Be a Star and The American, starring George Clooney.  Rodriguez’s next film after Machete is Predators, which looks just about as awesome as watching Danny Trejo kick serious ass.  Hit the jump if you never saw the Machete poster.
