Rodriguez reveals Machete sequels

Robert Rodriguez is planning sequels to Sin City and Machete

Robert Rodriguez has announced he's planning sequels to Sin City and Machete.

He told fans at Comic-Con that a script for Sin City 2 is being refined, and he hopes for two sequels to last year's Machete - at least one of which will bring the blade-slinging star into space.

"Even if we don't get to three, I'm at least making the trailer for three because it's so good. I would put it even before part two," Rodriguez said.

"Machete goes into space! It's like Moonraker," he added.

The 43-year-old filmmaker made the announcements in front of 6500 fans at the San Diego Convention Centre, then celebrated the news at an intimate party at the Hard Rock Hotel across the street.

He also discussed his latest film, Spy Kids 4, which is set to release in 4D next month. Playing in both 2D and 3D, the fourth dimension is "smell-o-vision".

Rodriguez explained that moviegoers will receive a card when they come into the theatre that has eight numbers on it that hold scents that correspond with the film.

"When a number flashes on screen, you scratch that number and you smell it, and whatever they're smelling on screen, you smell in the audience," he said.

"There's sweet smells and bad smells - because we have a baby and we have a dog - and it's really fun."
