You can't stop Machete. Or Machete's women.

While Danny Trejo may be the only actor officially signed on for the "Machete" sequel, at least two of his co-stars from the original film are in talks to return for more Mexican mayhem, according to The Playlist.

Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez are poised to reprise their roles from the 2010 film directed by Ethan Maniquis and Robert Rodriguez, a feature-length "Mexploitation" flick spawned from the mock trailer that appeared in the 2007 double feature, "Grindhouse." Alba played Sartana, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer who ended up assisting (and falling for) the disgraced Federale, and Michelle Rodriguez played Luz, a taco truck proprietor who was later revealed to be a legendary revolutionary.

The sequel, "Machete Kills," finds Machete hired by the U.S. government to take down both a Mexican cartel leader and madman billionaire who plan to launch a weapon into space. »
