Mel Gibson - Mel Gibson To Sign Up For Machete Kills?

Mel Gibson is in negotiations to star in 'Machete Kills'.

The 56-year-old actor is in talks over a supporting role in Robert Rodriguez's follow up to 2010 action movie 'Machete' - which starred Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan - that will see Danny Trejo reprise his role as blade-wielding Mexican Federale Machete Cortez.

'My Week With Marilyn' actress Michelle Williams has also been linked to the project, which Robert will juggle between directing 'Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For', Deadline reports.

Speaking about 'Machete Kills', he told The Hollywood Reporter: ''Currently I am directing it, but we're checking to see if there's going to be the need for another director if I have to go off and do 'Sin City'.

''I wasn't sure what the timing on 'Sin City' was or if I would have to step off to do 'Sin City' at a certain point, depending on when 'Machete' went. But 'Machete' looks like it's going to go pretty quickly so it's possible that I will direct the whole thing.

''There's so much of it that I want to direct I'll probably end up directing the whole thing. But if I have to step off, I'm going to try and shoot all of the actors and all of the main sequences.

''But it's such a fun movie, and it just came out even more fun than I could have imagined. I feel like I really need to do it.

''It's so subjective I feel like I really need to get in there and do it. It's just a lot of fun; it's a really cool concept, and I think it takes it to another level in a way that's compelling for me to go and do it myself.''

Mel is expected to take up his role in the movie as he prepares to release 'Get The Gringo', a film he co-wrote, produced, finance and stars in the lead role.
