Tarantino's Machete will open the 67th Venice Film Festival

Machete, Robert Rodriguez’s highly anticipated new action film, conceived as an expansion of the faux Grindhouse trailer, directed by Rodriguez with Ethan Maniquis, will have its world premiere at the Lido as the Midnight film, on the opening night of the 67th Venice International Film Festival.

The 67th Venice International Film Festival will take place September 1 through 11, 2010, directed by Marco Müller and organized by La Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta.

To be released on September 3, 2010 in the United States, Machete will have its world premiere public screening (all festival badges admitted as well) at the 67th Mostra del cinema, on Wednesday September 1 2010, in the Sala Grande (Palazzo del Cinema).

Rodriguez, the man who wrote a new chapter in the history of action films - from El Mariachi (1992) to From Dusk ‘Till Dawn (1996), Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) and Sin City (2005) - here directs an incredible cast, led by Danny Trejo (star of the original faux trailer) in the role of the legendary avenger Machete Cortez. At his side Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Steven Seagal, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan and Robert De Niro, in the role of the corrupt Senator McLaughlin. Filmed in the fall of 2009, the film was also written by Robert Rodriguez, produced by Robert Rodriguez, Elizabeth Avellán and Rick Schwartz, and will be released in the United States by 20th Century Fox.

Left for dead after clashing with notorious drug kingpin Torrez Mexican ex-federale Machete escapes to Texas looking to disappear and forget his tragic past, but what he finds is a web of corruption and deceit that leaves a bullet in a Senator and Machete a wanted man. Machete sets out to clear his name and expose a deep conspiracy. Standing in his way are Booth - a ruthless businessman with an endless payroll of killers, Von - a twisted border vigilante leading a small army, and Sartana Rivera - a beautiful immigrations officer torn between enforcing the law and doing what is right. Helping Machete even the odds are Luz - a sexy taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart, and Padre, a priest who’s good with blessings, but better with guns. Carving a path of bullets, blood, and broken hearts, Machete’s quest ultimately leads him back to Torrez for an epic battle of revenge and redemption.
