Robert Rodriguez On Directing Sin City 2 And At Least Some Of Machete Kills

Promoting the new Blu-ray and DVD release of Roadracers (buy it, it’s great, and cheap), Robert Rodriguez has spoken about his next few months putting a pair of well-anticipated sequels before cameras, and how incredibly busy he’s going to be.

At the moment, he says, the plan is for him to direct Machete Kills entirely by himself, and not in collaboration, as was the case last time, and then move back to Frank Miller‘s noir neighbourhood for A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told THR:

We’re checking to see if there’s going to be the need for another director if I have to go off and do Sin CityMachete looks like it’s going to go pretty quickly so it’s possible that I will direct the whole thing.

And he’s keen to direct the whole of the new Machete. He seems in love with it, in fact:

I feel like I really need to do it. It’s so subjective, I feel like I really need to get in there and do it. It’s just a lot of fun; it’s a really cool concept, and I think it takes it to another level in a way that’s compelling for me to go and do it myself.

The last Machete film was, as well as blood and boobs and really big knives, about relationship between Mexico and America. It’s encouraging that Rodriguez sees the second film as “subjectively” offering him compulsion to hold the reins. I’m sure the blood, boobs, and blades will be back, but it sounds like the film will still have a little more on its mind.
