Danny Trejo

Machete star Danny Trejo (Machete)  is revving up to star in Tarantula, an indie biker thriller being directed by Oley Sassone (who helmed a lot of schlocky TV like "Hercules" and "Xena: Warrior Princess"). Erin Cummings ("Spartacus: Blood and Sand") will co-star.

The story centers on a woman (Cummings) who breaks away from a tight-knit biker gang to start a new life but finds that escape is not so easy. Trejo plays the self-styled leader of the gang looking for the woman as well as revenge for his brother's death.

Essentially, it might as well be another Grindhouse feature...

Another TV vet, John Kersey (who has worked as a construction coordinator for almost 30 years in the industry) wrote the screenplay and will produce alongside John Bailey.

Shooting on Tarantula will begin this November in Detroit. Should fit right in...

Did you see Machete? If so, what did you think?
