Machete to Begin Filming in June

One of the best and most underrated films of all time was 2007's Grindhouse. The film, which was written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, was a double-feature inspired by the low-budget grindhouse films of decades past.

During the "intermission," fake movie trailers were shown. The most popular trailer was Machete. It stars Danny Trejo and Cheech Marin. Cheech Marin is Trejo's gun-toting priest vigilante brother. Memorable quote..."God forgives, I don't."

Rodriguez and Trejo frequently hinted that a full-length Machete film was in the works.

Well now, it's official. Machete will begin filming in June. Trejo and Rodriguez will co-direct.

"Written by Rodriguez, Machete will star Trejo as a Mexican ex-Federale, who while posing as a day laborer is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator, and uses his proficiency with bladed weapons, and apparently a gatling gun, to get revenge."

There is no word on whether Cheech Marin will be in the film, but if you look at the Cheech & Chong: Light Up America tour schedule, there's a 2 month gap beginning in June.

Some Cheech & Chong CDs are Being Discontinued



We're still trying to find out why and for how long, but the Up in Smoke Soundtrack CD has been discontinued by Warner Records. Cheech & Chong's Wedding Album is also not available for order from Warner.

We have a limited quantity on-hand so we recommend buying them just in case Warner decides to never print them again.

If Warner decides to make them only available in mp3 format, these may become collectors items.

Cheech Marin Working on New Book

During an interview with the Charlotte Observer, Cheech says he's working on a new book. He didn't reveal the subject of the book, but he's previously written a collection of children books, an autobiography and a book on Chicano art. Maybe, it will be his version of Cheech & Chong: The Unauthorized Autobiography. We don't know.

Cheech also said he'd like Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, From Dusk til Dawn) to direct a new Cheech & Chong film.

Tommy jokingly said, "I want to write a kid's book because Cheech did one. I want to write one that's more popular."

Cheech & Chong will be performing in Charlotte tomorrow night.
