Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin & Steven Seagal Join The Cast Of Rodriguez’s MACHETE!!

I am – Hercules!!
Lindsay Lohan and Steven Seagal are apparently back in the big-screen game! Entertainment Weekly says Variety says they join Jessica Alba, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin and previously rumored Robert De Niro and Michelle Rodriguez in Robert Rodriguez’ Danny Trejo vehicle “Machete,” the tale of a Mexican ex-Federale double-crossed and framed for murder by a crooked American politician. Despite rumors to the contrary posted on the Bloody Disgusting website, “Funny People” star Jonah Hill apparently won't be in "Machete." Only famed Internet Seagalogist “Vern” can say for certain, but I don’t think a Seagal movie has seen the inside of U.S. cinemas since the 2002 flop “Half Past Dead.” Lohan’s been away for a shorter term. America last saw her on the big screen in 2007’s “I Know Who Killed Me.” I love all this casting, most of all perhaps that of Marin and Johnson, initially teamed for "Tin Cup" then reunited by “Lost” showrunner Carlton Cuse on “Nash Bridges.” Like Trejo, Marin appeared (as gun-toting clergy) in the pretend trailer for “Machete” featured in “Grindhouse.” I'm guessing Lohan will play the politician's daughter seduced by Machete.

    Steven Seagal?

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Now I gotta see this!

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 10:57 p.m. CST

    Marin played Machete's brother....who was a father

    by thelordofhell

    1st

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 10:58 p.m. CST

    Fuck that.... Lindsay Lohan?

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    I officially don't give a shit about this movie.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 10:59 p.m. CST

    Will Jessica play the wife or the daughter?

    by thelordofhell

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 10:59 p.m. CST

    I wonder if Rodriguez can finally convince Alba

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    to go sans clothing. I would indeed have a glimmer of respect and admiration for the man if he could pull off the feat.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11 p.m. CST

    Hey Robert, I heard Paula Abdul's not doing anything now

    by thelordofhell

    You should put her in the movie too

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:01 p.m. CST

    EVERYBODY WANTS A PIECE OF TREJO

    by Mullah Omar

    Even a year ago I'll bet Lohan never thought she'd be 10th on the bill in a Danny Trejo flick. <br> <br> Also, it would be nice to see another EXECUTIVE DECISION-style quick punk-out Seagal death.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:03 p.m. CST

    So can we expect more video camera aesthetics?

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Is Rodriguez just going to shoot this in his backyard over a couple of weekends with a green sheet strung up on the cloths line or would it be too much to ask for a real film shot on locations?

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:03 p.m. CST

    yeah....

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    cause I'm sure Lohan keeps tabs on Danny Trejo.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:05 p.m. CST

    ALSO, WHERE IS JEFF FAHEY?

    by Mullah Omar

    Did someone swipe his role?

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:05 p.m. CST

    yea....

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    lindsay did.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:06 p.m. CST

    Is just going to be a joke ala GH's Trailer?

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Or does RR aim to make a real action, crime picture. Id be betting on the former.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:07 p.m. CST

    Jeff Fahey's mistake was that he wanted to get paid

    by thelordofhell

    Everyone else is apparently doing this movie for a free bar-b-que at Robert's house.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:08 p.m. CST

    Jessica Alba

    by thelordofhell

    I guess this means no X rating

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:08 p.m. CST

    http://outlawvern.com/2009/08/05/looks-like-its-official/

    by Traumnovelle

    Haha...Vern is quick when Steven "Crystal Caves" Segal is involved. <P> No Jonah Hill, though. That kind of sucks. I'm not the biggest fan of Hill, but the prospect of him playing a chubby Mexican named Julio was already pretty funny. <P> And fuck the haters, Lindsay Lohan will be sexy as fuck in this. I am excited that she is in this. She is crazy. I love her. I want her to be my girlfriend. <P> Robert Rodriguez knows how to entertain. I'm looking forward to this.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:10 p.m. CST

    yea, and that's why Jonah Hill......

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    won't be in it. He'll hog up all that bbq.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:11 p.m. CST

    Ben Lyons and Ben Mancewitz aren't doing anything

    by thelordofhell

    Robert should cast them too

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:11 p.m. CST

    SERPIENTES EN UN AVION

    by Mullah Omar

    All I really hope for in this flick is that it plays it as a deadpan genre film rather than tries too hard to be cool and wink at the audience. Ever since SNAKES ON A PLANE I worry about flicks that work as over-the-top ideas, get overhyped, and fall flat in their execution.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:12 p.m. CST

    The mad pastiche of this casting

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    is the only thing that makes this project intriguing to me. It's just so random, I think I'll have to see what it looks like when it's slapped up on the wall.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:12 p.m. CST

    yea, she'll be sexy as fuck.....

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    as long as she isn't looking like a coked-out Crypt Keeper by the time production starts.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:12 p.m. CST

    Tru dat, Cheyenne

    by thelordofhell

    Unless Trejo stabs him with a shiv for trying to take the last piece of Pollo.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:15 p.m. CST

    Just wait until G.I. Joe comes out

    by thelordofhell

    once that movie makes $30 at the box office, all the actors in that one will line up to the Robert Rodriguez Tex-Mex Bar-B-Que shoot for Machete

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:15 p.m. CST

    jonah hill should be in this

    by StonedWriter88

    he already turned downed transformers 2 for funny people...look at that. it's like he wants to only be in apatow movies. oh well. this movie should be cool. also i saw at comingsoon they said jeff fahey is still in it, i hope so. im glad cheech still is he was awesome in the trailer.

It's a big ass knife Linds, now back to the shot....I want you to scream okay.....quiet on the set!!...ACTION....CUT!! Okay we'll edit that shit in post. Could somebody get me some Bar-B-Que?

    Rodriguez has out together eclectic casts before

    by Bass Ackwards

    Look at Sin City or Once Upon a Time, the movies still turn out to be boring and flat, and even that'd ge alright if the action scenes kicked ass, but those are usually pretty stale and lame too. Though Im one of the few that probably liked both halves of Grindhouse, Rodriguez's half less so, but it was still cheap fun. Maybe I'll be surprised by this.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:34 p.m. CST

    by CarlThorMark1978

    She's all cracked out and washed up at 22 from booze, coke, cock and pussylapping with that ugly skank she's been carpet munching with. Maybe Robert's hoping that he can fuck her a few weeks during shooting?

    by cloudrider`

    what a lame attempt to please some horny boys. the cast listed deniro, alba, johnson, marin. who's the biggest star of the bunch? deniro. who's the lead character? trejo. who's the babe of the bunch? alba. <p> yup, just post a pic of lohan in a bikini. makes sense.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:43 p.m. CST

    Lohan makes sense

    by Bass Ackwards

    Seagal, Alba, Trejo, Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, he's casting B and C level talent, Lohan fits right in.

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    I guess that counts Lindsay out. Between her screen time and Steve's super ultra mega close-ups the film may run at an extended 5 hours.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:49 p.m. CST

    Why not put a pic of Alba up as well?

    that cost peanuts, and you all sit in judgement. The man is a hero to independent filmmaking, and those of you who think he jumped the shark-boy are just clamoring as ever to seem ahead of your time. You should all be ruminating on how many Tito & Tarantula songs we're going to be graced with in this movie named after a weapon. But instead you're up on your high-horses to get the furthest view of what you can take a measly unprovoked shit on. You pissants don't deserve Rodriguez.

    by Toilet_Terror

    They are hollow and lifeless. At least insofar as you might expect a film to provide more than some brief frivolous entertainment. There's not much going on in his pictures, but they can be fun to watch as actionsploitation exercises. <p>But he's basically already been beaten forever at that game by Crank 2, so his entire career is a bit pointless at the moment.

    There are fine new young actresses out there - women who study their craft, look after themselves and (for someone in the acting profession) are fairly stable. They should get the work. Women like Lohan, should not. All you're doing is giving her more money for drugs and alcohol - and pissing us fans off for having to see her on screen. She isn't pretty, she is an average actress at best, and she is an embarassment to the profession. Not. A. Fan.

    by V'Shael

    She may be cute for a ginger, and have a trim little body, and yeah, you could fantasise about her as one of her many underage alter-ego's if that's what floats your boat. <p> But any day now one of her many STD's is going to achieve an independent existence outside her diseased snatch, and start killing hobos. <p> You know this to be true.

    "hero to independent filmmaking"???

    by cloudrider`

    try the guy who did memento and that videostore clerk who did reservoir dogs. both movies were made on the cheap too. and both guys fully know cheap dont have to translate to disposable junks, which is what rodriguez movies are. sure, what he did to get el mariachi made is to be commended, but he was a beginner then and he's a big name now. to STILL be making the same kind of grindhouse junks now is embarassing. tarantino's junks at least have artistic merits. rodriguez's are just pure juvenile trash.

    "that videostore clerk who did reservoir dogs. both movies were made on the cheap too" yeah because so many "independent" movies have Harvey Kietel producing and starring. I'm not saying Dogs is bad, it's probably my 2nd favorite QT film, but as an inspiration for indie filmmakers it's not. I'm much more impressed with the clerk that did Clerks on a nothing budget with no help until it was finished or the film student that did She's Gotta Have It...or the good ole boy from Texas who did SLACKER--all done with no help producing, financing then I am QT...from a pure indie standpoint RobRod is more inspiration then Quinty. Just because of how they did their first feature. follow up pictures is another story, but if we're talking what they did for their first feature all of those stories are more inspirational to an indie then QT

    We shouldn't be just GIVING her roles. This self-obsessed, arrogant bitch needs to work her way back up into the spotlight after squandering her looks and talents. I'm disappointed in you, Rodriguez. She would have never taken a role in your movies before, you can be sure of that. She's just using you as a way to get back on top, because no one else in town wants to work with her, and with good reason.

    IForgotAbout19, RODRIGUEZ’S MOVIE DON’T COST PEANUTS….

    by CarlThorMark1978

    They usually cost 50 million plus these days which is hardly low budget. Strange considering he shoots in and around Austin using his own facilities don’t you think? Sure, in comparison to Transformers, which cost 200 million, the studio slugs in Hollywood think it’s a bargain but 50 mill ain’t cheap.<br> <br>The truth is that the whole “Mr. Fiscal Responsibility” thing is just Robert doing PR to cover the fact that his movies keep getting more and more expensive. Never mind that Crank 3 cost about 20 mil, was a true exploitation film and ten times more entertaining then Planet Terror which was 75 minutes of El Douche winking and nodding at the audience about how aware everyone was that they were in an exploitation movie.<br> <br>If RR was able to knock out really great little action/exploitation/Horror movies at about 25 mill a piece I wouldn’t have a problem but he keeps making these shit kids films never mind that it’s been 4 and a half years since Sin City, his best movie, was released and he STILL hasn’t got any sequels out.<br> <br>RR needs to do Machete for 25 mill and cut down on casting people who drive up his budgets, hire some c-listers or unknowns and make something really fucking crazy. Untill then he does that or Sin City 2 and 3 he can piss right the fuck off. Oh and don't cast that useless bitch Alba unless she's going to get her tits and pussy out because she sure as fuck can't act.

    ColonelCaine, HERE ARE MY PLANET TERROR/SIN CITY ESTIMATES....

    by CarlThorMark1978

    The IMDB has the budget of Planet Terror at an estimated 53 million while Boxofficemojo says it was about 67. Let’s split the difference and say it was 60 since that’s what my old issues of Entertainment Weekly and Premiere have reported. Now, I really doubt that the fake trailers, not including Machete, cost more then a mill and it would be insane if they did. 59 mill. Death Proof was 114 minutes of dialogue with one car crash and one chase scene and it would be a fucking disgrace if QT spent more then 10 mill on that piece of shit. 49 mill. Rodriguez reportedly shot a shitload of footage for Machete, enough for a 40 minute flick and let’s say that cost, maybe, 5 mill at max.<br> <br>That leaves about 44 million that was spent on Planet Terror which was only 105 minutes long. In comparison, Sin City was 124 minutes long and cost an estimated 40 million according to the IMDB and Boxofficemojo although I seem to remember Entertainment Weekly, Total Film and Empire magazine reporting a 50 mill+ budget.<br> <br>Let’s just say Sin City cost 40 mill, it was shot almost completely on greenscreen stages and was over two hours long. Are you really suggesting that Planet Terror, with its large cast, hoards of exploding, melting zombies and large scale battle scene’s cost only 25 Mill even considering that it was only 20 minutes shorter then Sin City?<br> <br>I think you need to reconsider your position on this debate.

    by colonelcaine

    I've still got that issue of Entertainment Weekly, so I know you've got the right numbers, but that 53 million consists of 25 for Planet Terror and 25 for Death Proof, give or take a few million to account for the extra 3 million, which I always kinda figuresd covered the fake trailer budget. The Weinsteins's may have their heads shoved fairly far up their asses, but there is no way in hell they would have ever spent 50-60 million on Rodriguez's segment alone.

    RODRIGUEZ SHOULD BE GETTING OUT A MOVIE A YEAR....

    by CarlThorMark1978

    The guys got the resources that he should have a dozen scripts in development and, hey, there’s plenty of writers who would work for less than what Hollywood pays in exchange for the credit. I think RR’s a good director but he’s not the best writer and if he could beef up his scripts I think he’d make much better movies. He would do well to pay attention to Sidney Lumet’s career. Lumet’s not an auteur but he’s been putting out quality work for over 50 years and has made one of the greatest movies of all time, NETWORK. Robert needs to stop working in a vacuum.

    RR may shoot fast but the longer a movie is the more post production work is needed in terms of effects, scoring, etc...and that eats up money. RR dosen't do everything himself and the more work that is spent on something the more money it costs.

    Planet Terror look expensive, but consider this...

    by colonelcaine

    ...the Dawn of the Dead remake, which takes place on a massive scale compared to PT, only cost $28 million. I could see PT maybe costing 45 million dollars under a less budget-conscious director, but I honestly believe RR pulled it off for 25. Since studio estimates can't ever be trusted, especially those found on IMdB, I guess I'll just have to agree to disagree on this one

He's just friggin cool even if his movies have sucked. And Alba? Hottest chick in Hollywood. All in all, I wish tremendous good will on the set and for the success of this film. Good Luck, Robert!

    SS won't make his usual

    by JuanSanchez

    Those DTV films are made on the cheap to guarantee profit with most of the money going to SS. The reason RR can get so many stars in this is the way he shoots. He brings them in and shoots quick - so most will work for 5 to 10 days, other than Trejo, Marin and Fahey. James Spader worked for only 5 days playing the villain in RR's upcoming family film Shorts.Even Bruce Willis only worked for 10 days on Sin City. So with a short shoot he can pay each star less and get more stars in the picture. I'd be willing to bet none of the actors will be clearing $1 million for this picture.

  • Aug. 6, 2009, 4:13 p.m. CST

    His ability to shoot relatively cheap is how he gets...

    by JuanSanchez

    films like Machete, with a B and C movie co-star in the lead, greenlit. Nobody's gonna give him $50 million for this. I'd be willing to bet this will be shot for $25 million or less - maybe even as low as $15 million. That nearly assures it will be profitable even if it under performs.

    by cloudrider`

    when it comes to independent filmmaking, inspirations dont only comes from HOW you shoot your first film, it comes also from a practical budget conscious script. tarantino's reservoir dogs read cheap and read cool. that is enough inspiration for any aspiring independent filmmakers, and is enough reason for any financier to back that project. <p> and just because that movie had harvey keitel backing it doesnt mean tarantino didnt work his ass off to get himself into that position. what's harder - using your money to get movie made yourself(el mariachi), or getting someone in hollywood to trust you enough to get your first movie made? both ways require just as much tenacity. dismissing tarantino's way as the 'easier' path is wrong.

    by thegreatwhatzit

    is the post-millennium Dick Miller. Nice guy,too. He stole a movie from headliner Larry the Cable Guy (DELTA FARCE...yeah, he's already polishing that Oscar). But the addition of Lohan??? That's desperation, i.e. visibility in the tabloid crap (a former teen bombshell turns "gutsy"). Naturally,she'll kiss Rodriguez's ass (and DeNiro'd) in interviews, insist this supporting role is a comeback" and drink herself into another MMonroe impersonation.

    by beardinator

    I read he makes a standard salary, no profit stuff from his dtv work. he was being sued by some dtv studio for taking his 4 million paycheck but showing up on set and proceeding to be 'Seagal'. On Ew someone commented his salary is like a million bucks a week or something. They sure love Seagal in eastern Europe. Still, I'd have thought he'd be doing work for big mac meals.
