Deadline is reporting that Mel Gibson is set to play a supporting role in Machete Kills. The sequel is being direct by Robert Rodriguez with Danny Trejo reprising his role as the blade-wielding former Federale title character.
'In Machete Kills, Machete is drafted by the U.S. government to track an arms dealer through Mexico before he can launch a rocket.'
The action drama will be skipping theaters but will hit DirecTV before coming out on VOD and DVD. The film will be released by Fox.
