Spy Kids star Alexa Vega is all grown up. She’s also turning heads with this first official from Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Machete Kills, the sequel to Mexploitation cult action flick Machete. Vega plays the very non-childlike character KillJoy in Rodriguez’s sequel, the bodyguard of a whorehouse, presumbly the one presided over by Sofia Vergara’s Madame Desdemona. No release date has been set for Machete Kills, but Open Road will unleash the film sometime next year.
Machete Kills also stars Danny Trejo, who returns as anti-hero Machete, Amber Heard, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen, Michelle Rodriguez, Vanessa Hudgens, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Edward James Olmos, William Sadler, Lady Gaga, Mike Gassaway, Demián Bichir, Electra Avellan, Marko Zaror, Elise Avellan, Billy Blair, Emmy Robbin, Marci Madison, Elle LaMont, Jorge A. Jimenez, Samuel Davis, Crystal Martinez, Trevante Rhodes, Vincent Fuentes, Heaven Elizabeth Fearn and Sophia Hoang.
In the film, the U.S. government (the President is rumored to be Charlie Sheen) recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
