The potentially Mel Gibson–featuring, certainly Danny Trejo–starring Machete Kills, from Machete and Spy Kids auteur Robert Rodriguez, may now feature Amber Heard, too. The film, which is kicking off this month in Austin, Texas — Heard's hometown, actually — would showcase the Drive Angry and Playboy Club actress as "a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio," Variety writes. Just spectacular news for fans of barbecue-savvy killers with wicked names.
