Sony Pictures has given Scannain an Irish exclusive clip for their forthcoming feature film Machete, starring Danny Trejo, and it shows a softer side to the renegade killer.
The film, which is co-directed by Ethan Manquis and Robert Rodriguez, is based on a fake trailer in the middle of Quentin Tarantino and Rodriguez’ double-header Grindhouse, and sees Trejo play Machete a rogue former Mexican undercover agent, who is on the lam in Texas after a blow-out with a drug lord, played by Steven Seagal.
Joining Trejo, De Niro and Seagal are Robert DeNiro, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan. So their is talent there.
I’ve actually seen the movie but I’ll hold off on giving judgement until closer to the November 26th release date.

Machete (Danny Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
