Mel Gibson is apparently in talks to star in Robert Rodriguez's sequel to his action film Machete.

The Sin City director is courting Mad Max star Mel and Michelle Williams to join Danny Trejo in the sequel to his gritty action film about the blade-wielding hero, Deadline.com reports.

Rodriguez has previously revealed he has planned two sequels for Machete, one of which is set in space.

Mel has caused controversy with his behaviour in recent years, including accusations of anti-Semitism and the leaking of abusive voicemails he made to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

He has tried to return to acting, first in Jodie Foster's The Beaver which was panned by critics. Then director Todd Phillips tried to help him by giving him a cameo role in The Hangover Part II. But the cast threatened mutiny if Mel was hired and the part was eventually filled by Nick Cassavetes.
