Robert Rodriguez - Robert Rodriguez Plans Machete In Space

Subscribe to Robert Rodriguez alerts

Robert Rodriguez is hoping to take his 'Machete' series into space.

The 'Sin City' director has been given The Go ahead to make a sequel to his Mexican knife fighter movie 'Machete' - called 'Machete Kills' - but is most excited about his plan for a third film, which will see the titular character head into space.

Speaking at Comic-Con in San Diego, he said: "'Machete Kills Again' will be a space opera with a machete-shaped lightsaber.

"To see a badass Mexican in space is really rare in science fiction. We're at least going to shoot a trailer for that and put it in front of 'Machete Kills'."

The director has long been a fan of taking his films in interesting directions, and his forthcoming 'Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D' will be no exception, as it is a 'scratch-and-sniff' feature, where viewers will be able to scratch a card and experience different scents through the course of the film.

He added: "This stuff smells amazing. There are eight instances during the movie where a number will flash on the screen and you then smell that.

"Some of those are pretty good and some are very wrong. Even if you're not a kid you're going to have fun.

"I did this with Ricky Gervais and Joel McHale, so it's not just for kids."
