Machete 1

Since it’s been confirmed that Robert Rodriguez is currently shooting his trailer turned feature Machete, some behind the scenes photos have popped up online. The most recent batch feature Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal (yes, he’s alive), Danny Trejo, and Rodriguez. I’m not exactly sure what their filming, but for some odd reason it involves Alba standing on an old school car in four inch heels. Make what you will of that when you view the photos below. Enjoy!

The rest of the Machete cast includes Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and Jeff Fahey. Machete is the title character of the film based off of a fake trailer that was featured during Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse collaboration. Rumors started circulating that the short should be made into a feature length film, and lo and behold it’s happening!

The film’s star Danny Trejo has been in the business for a long time. He’s known for being a supporting character actor in most of Rodriguez’s films. This will be his first venture as the lending man of such a large ensemble. Hooray for Danny!
