Robert Rodriguez will he doing the old film-buffy genre-wallow later this month when he begins shooting Machete, a feature inspired by a mock Grindhouse trailer. The film will star Danny Trejo (Heat) and will reportedly use Austin locations. It’s being reported that Robert DeNiro, Jonah Hill and Michelle Rodriguez might be cast, but that sounds a little dicey. Steven Seagal and Lindsay Lohan could also be involved. What was it about the failure of Grindhouse that Rodriguez didn’t understand? Genre spoofs are only for film snobs.
