Robert Rodriguez brings back his iconic character "Machete," as promised, in the James Bond-esque "Machete Kills," which opens this weekend. What started out as a joke trailer has become a bona fide film series, with a third installment ready to go if the box office is right for the new movie.
Moviefone sat down with the busy writer-director-editor-composer to talk about how he's able to convince anyone, from Mel Gibson to an Oscar-nominated actor like Demian Bechir, into being in his movies. "They get to be in a world where they can do things that they normally never get to do, be larger than life, be iconic in a completely different way," he explained. He also talked about why he's really a fanboy at heart and confessed that yes, he does keep all the props from his movies.
Moviefone: These are your James Bond movies.
Rodriguez: Yeah! I love James Bond movies. »

Chilliwack, B.C. - A co-founder of iconic Canadian rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive had a sexual relationship with a girl between the age of 11 and 14, a B.C. judge was told this week.
“I felt the relationship was very sick,” Stacy Bohun, 24, recalled during court testimony in B.C. Supreme Court, where Tim Bachman is on trial for sex assault, sexual interference of a person under 14 and sexual touching of a young person.
“He would get me to sit on his lap and kiss him,” she added. “One time he tried to French kiss me ... It was just a lot of weird, inappropriate things.”
A ban on publication was imposed in 2010 on the name of Bachman to shield the identity of the complainant. But the bans on both Bachman and Bohun were lifted Wednesday by Justice Neill Brown after an application by a reporter with The Canadian Press.
