Developed out of a rather unusual circumstance, the action-thriller Machete, from directors Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, started off as a trailer in the Rodriguez/Tarantino double-feature Grindhouse and, due to demand from fans, has now become a full-length film.

About a renegade former Mexican Federale (Danny Trejo) who roams the cities, towns and streets of Texas looking for work after a shakedown from a drug lord (Steven Seagal), Machete promises a high body count with a cast that includes Robert DeNiro, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Cheech Marin, as Padre Benito del Toro.

While at the press day for Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This, due out on DVD on April 20th and for which we’ll have more on later, Cheech Marin talked a bit about his involvement with Machete.

Q: What is your body count in Machete?

Cheech: I don’t know yet. »
