Actress Michelle Rodriguez has officially signed on to return to two film franchises she's very familiar with, Fast and Furious 6 and Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills. It's no surprise that she'll be back in these films. Well, it's kind of a surprise with Fast and Furious as her character was believed to have been killed off until the end credits scene in the last movie showed us that she wasn't.
She will be joining Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson who are all confirmed for the sixth installment of the franchise. I suspect we'll see a few other familiar faces as well. Haywire's Gina Carano is also in talks to join the movie as part of Johnson's squad. The next film will be a heist film and is set to shoot in Europe this June.
Machete Kills will start shooting in Taxas very soon. She will once again join Danny Trejo who teams up with the U.S. Government to take on a Mexican drug cartel and a villain who wants to take over the world with a satellite weapon.
Fast and Furious 6 is scheduled for release on May 24th, 2013, and Machete Kills' release date is to be determined.
