features an impressive and strong cast list, which includes Mel Gibson
and Jessica Alba
, andLady Gaga
is the latest to join the bunch. A new poster has been released to celebrate this announcement with the revelation that she will play a character known as La Chameleon
. What her role will be in the film is unclear, but it’s safe to assume that she won’t win any PETA members over with her attire. Then again, we’d expect nothing less from a woman who wore a meat dress.
Director Robert Rodriguez
was sure to make the public aware of the singer’s appearance in the film. Yesterday, he tweeted, “I just finished working with @ladygaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!” Hopefully that’s a strong indication, but then again, Rodriguez is a walking, talking PR machine at times.
Machete Kills is, unsurprisingly, a story about a man called Machete who is recruited by the United States government to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space. Along the way, he’s bound to kill at least a handful of people. Lady Gaga joins the likes of Amber Heard
, Sofia Vergara
, Michelle Rodriguez
, Alexa Vega
, Charlie Sheen
, Vanessa Hudgens
, Cuba Gooding Jr
, William Sadler
and Demian Bichir
. The movie is expected sometime next year.
