Lady Gaga stars in ‘Machete Kills’

Writer/director Robert Rodriquez is currently in the midst of shooting the sequel to his 2010 film Machete called Machete Kills. Rodriguez treated his followers to a special surprise on Twitter today:

“I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills. She kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”

The news was kept under wraps for quite some time, which is astounding in the film world.

Gaga will play La Chameleon in the sequel. She joins Mel Gibson, Alexa Vega, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana and Danny Trejo, who will reprise his role as the title character.

The film follows Machete when he is recruited by the U.S to stop Mel Gibson’s arms dealer from launching a missile.

Machete Kills hits theaters in 2013.
