Via Robert Rodriguez's Twitter account comes word that: "I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better?" My sentiments exactly.
Sheen joins the previously announced Sofia Vergara, Edward James Olmos, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Zoe Saldana, and of course Danny Trejo in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills.
In the sequel, the titular ex-federale (Danny Trejo) is recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico's leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a missile.
Filming is currently ongoing in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for more announcements.
