We have another new casting announcement today for Machete Kills. Joining the already massive cast is William Sadler, who horror fans will know from his roles in The Mist and Demon Knight. Like most of the recent casting announcements, these aren't being announced via press release, so we have no details on who he'll be playing in the film.

Sadler joins Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos (rumored), Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen, Electra Avellan, and Elise Avellan. Filming started earlier this month and we recently reported on some set photos that were posted by Jessica Alba.

An official synopsis has been released, but Robert Rodriguez recently revealed that the story has changed quite a bit: “That synopsis we put out is misdirection — it’s all fake. Machete is recruited by the President, that’s true, but there’s no cartel leader and the weapon in space is just one of our early story ideas. That said, there is still a space element, for sure. We’ve given the character a much bigger playground. It’s going to be like a James Bond movie, with a Bond-style villain.”

Here is the original synopsis: “The new film finds Machete recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy.”
