Director Robert Rodriguez has added even more eye candy to the already stunning female cast of MACHETE KILLS as the helmer’s twin nieces, Electra and Elise Avellan are set to reprise their roles as bad-ass nurses Mona and Lisa in the upcoming sequel. The duo join Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Edward James Olmos, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana and Alexa Vega.
The Avellan’s previously played the Crazy Babysitter Twins in Rodriguez’s PLANET TERROR as well as Quentin Tarantino’s DEATH PROOF. With filming currently underway, 20th Century Fox will distribute MACHETE KILLS but no official release date has been set. However, you can expect the film to hit theaters sometime next year.
MACHETE KILLS finds the title character (Trejo) recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy.
