Robert Rodriguez was â€“ not surprisingly, he lives about a quarter-mile down the road from the venue â€“ at SXSW over the weekend and Cinema Blend had the opportunity to quiz the filmmaker about some of this upcoming projects.
Firstly, Rodriguez says â€œSin City 2â€ is still on the way â€“ just donâ€™t go lining up for tickets just yet.
â€œI always say Sin City 2 right around the corner, because thatâ€™s what everybody wants to hear and I like pleasing the audience,” he said during an interview at SXSW. But he was a little more honest than he might have been previously: “It might be a long corner.â€
â€œMacheteâ€, on the other hand, Rodriguezâ€™s planned â€œGrindhouseâ€ spin-off flick starring Danny Trejo, is ready to go before the cameras.
” Iâ€™m not going to bullshit you guys. We are making Machete.â€ He added that the whole production is a lot further along than we think: “Weâ€™ve already got the script and weâ€™re ready to go.â€
And whatâ€™s this film â€œNervecrackerâ€ heâ€™s doing? Science-fiction, ya say?
“â€œI used to say it was, itâ€™s kind of like Blade Runner, but that was Blade Walker. This is Blade Runner.â€
Blade Walk over here to get the full low-down on any of the aboveâ€¦
