Zoe Saldana May Join Robert Rodriguez’ “Machete” Follow-Up “Machete Kills”

Zoe Saldana May Join Robert Rodriguez' "Machete" Follow-Up "Machete Kills"

In a Moviehole interview with actor Danny Trejo from a few days ago, he revealed that Zoe Saldana has joined the cast of Robert Rodriguez’ sequel to Machete titled Machete Kills. Trejo said Kills will be more over-the-top than its predecessor about an ex-federale who goes on a rampage for revenge and that shooting will begin in approximately three weeks.

Apparently, Colombian sexpot Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba and Machete star Michelle Rodriguez may have also joined.

Trejo said, “The sequel to Machete, Machete Kills is going to be a lot more over-the-top than Machete. We’ve got Sofia Vergara, who is a star in her own right, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Zoe Saldana – and guess what? I get to kiss all of ‘em.”

I’ve never seen Machete but I’m certainly more curious to see it now. I don’t recall it being a hit necessarily, perhaps a cult one?

There hasn’t been an official press release regarding the cast of the action thriller follow up. We’ll keep you updated on any developments.

She is so beautiful and any man black or not would love to have this sweet thing. I think this is another Mariah Carey thing where an entertainer that black folks like says something negative about blacks and makes it seem like being black is horrible and is the worst thing that could happen to anybody. But it's funny how these same people will try to imitate us with fashion, butt pads, lip surgery, hip hop and even urban slang. If you don't like us stop trying to BE like us.


I like the work this young lady has done on film since the Drumline movie. If she doesn't like black men, she must have a good reason (not sure what the reason is but I hope it's not just to make money in Hollywood). I think brothers have enough to worry about without being condemned by entertainers who are supported by blacks (by way of buying their music, going to their movies and concerts, etc). Slavery and racism ruined the future of this country centuries ago and it will not end until judgement day (unfortunately).


Zoe hates black men. Never had a black man love interest in movies only whites and in real life she only dates and is with white men. It is obvious that she has self hate. She started in black movies and acknowledged she was a black woman. Mujer Negra but then once she got famous she dropped the Afro part and just called herself a Latin or Latina.

Just google this

She will even cut Latinos down by saying they have kids early.
She said in an interview with I believe Access Hollywood that she wanted to
have babies with her ex fiance Keith Britton. She will even use the stereotype that is used against Latinos to try and fit in.
"I'm Latin — we start young, honey!" the actress, 33, said on Lifetime's The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet Thursday. "At 22 you're like, 'I just wanna hold something!' You want a little critter."


The obsession with who does or doesn't identify as black is quite pathetic. Zoe is obviously black. She has said so publicly and on print. I dont understand how the first thing you have to say about her possibly booking a new job is to talk about her blackness. And what do you mean getting roles that should go to black actresses? So because she is latina and black, she is not deserving or not authentic? Do you think Black Americans are the only blacks that matter? Good lord! Unshackle your mental chains!


"a lot more over-the-top than Machete" That's even possible? LOL


you americans are so dumB its not about zoe saying shes black or not that's absolutely irrelvant (frankly shes only said it once and that was to a black magazine of couse shes not gonna deny her african heritage when she sput on the spot by race obsessed AA'S) is the fact that hollywood refuses to represent YOU aa women who look BLACK and use foreign mixed women like zoe to replace you and you just go along with it so desperate to see someone that is marginally dark skinned.

Kid chaos

This horse faced girl is smart do white movies and make yourself rich


Yawn why is Shadow and Act reporting about Zoe Saldana all this chick does is try to distance herself from her black heritage. Hollywood seems to make a big deal about these black Latina actresses that distance themselves from discussing being black.

I have read several articles about Saldana and yes I get it she is a Latina but she never acknowledges she gets roles that I wish went to a black actress. For instance, Star Trek deserved a better actress for the lone female role than her.

Dr. Boogie

More over the top!??!??! The state of Arizona, boarder patrol vigilantes, and Tea Party flunkies, beware….LOL!!!! #Winning!

NOT for the faint at heart. If you don't know what "grindhouse" means off the top of your head, stay away.


I enjoyed the first one and am looking forward to the sequel. This may redeem Rodriguez for Spy Kids 4.
