Michelle Rodriguez definitely deserved to be the lead actress in Machete. I just was not a fan of Jessica Alba in the original film (and not really in any of her other films for that matter.) Always liked Michelle Rodriguez better, and it is great to know that she is returning in the sequel as Luz. The badass food truck girl who made a mean taco, and brought the action in the finale.
The source also has a brief plot synopsis that also gives the name of Melvin’s character. LUTHER VOZ.
Here’s the plot description.
“Finds the titular ex-federale (Danny Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico’s leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a missile.”
I’m looking forward to who else returns, or what new actors they get in the film.
