Amber Heard Goes Grindhouse on ‘Machete Kills’

Posted by , on May 3, 2012 at 3:08 pm 

Amber Heard tried her hand at the exploitation game with last year’s Drive Angry — your memory of that film says more than I could ever hope to — so let’s hope this second round prove more fruitful. According to Variety, the Rum Diary actress is Robert Rodriguez‘s latest get on Machete Kills, making this the third consecutive day of casting on his fast-moving sequel.

Heard‘s part is that of Miss San Antonio, a “manipulative assassin,” but this oddly-secretive production will leave the rest for later. As a relative fan of the actress, however, the addition is one I’ll welcome — even if I don’t want to see the movie at hand. The plot sees Machete (Danny Trejo) work for the U.S. government in the attempt to stop an evil arms dealer (Mel Gibson) from deploying missiles.

The rest of the cast consists of the returning Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba, while Demián Bichir is adding some new blood to the proceedings. Between that Oscar nominee, Heard, and Gibson, the reach of Rodriguez is mighty impressive. On this outing, however, the formal skill remains to be seen.

Is Heard’s casting enough to change your mind on Machete Kills one way or the other?
