Robert Rodriguez wants Mel Gibson and Michelle Williams for “Machete Kills”


Posted by on

Robert Rodriguez is getting busy bringing his most anticipated sequels to the big screen (and no, we aren’t talking about the next “Spy Kids” film or a new “Shark Boy and Lava Girl”). Hot off yesterday’s news that Rodriguez is going to be reteaming with Frank Miller to make “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” the director is also apparently working hard to bring “Machete Kills” in front of the camera within the next few weeks (the same time frame we heard back in February).

The news comes via Deadline, who says that Rodriguez is shopping the project around Cannes in the hopes of acquiring financing. He also is apparently trying to convince Michelle Williams and Mel Gibson to come on board as well, with the plan to start shooting in Austin around the beginning of May.

Though Danny Trejo is the titular leading man in “Machete Kills,” fans will remember that “Machete” was similarly loaded with big stars. Everyone from Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba to Steven Seagal and Robert De Niro had roles in the movie. And it seems like Gibson might be the sequel’s version of Lindsay Lohan (i.e. the wild card).

Rodriguez will have a stacked filming schedule if this plan actually works out. He announced yesterday that he wants to start shooting “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” this summer, and we aren’t too far away from that. Then again, as Collider points out, Rodriguez is known for shooting quickly (and cheaply), so it actually might not be much of an issue.

The plot of “Machete Kills” has Machete “taking down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space.” No word yet on a planned release date.

Which would you rather see first, “Machete Kills” or “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”? Let us know in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
