Sofia Vergara Joins Machete Kills Cast

Colombian actress Sofia Vergara will be joining Robert Rodriguez’s film Machete Kills, the sequel to Machete, reports Variety. The Modern Family star is in final talks to play the character Madame Desdemona. Her Mexican, ahem, ladies and clients will apparently hold information that Machete needs. (Quite the departure from the hilarious Gloria!)

Other leading ladies set to appear in the film are Jessica Alba, Amber Heard and Michelle Rodriguez. Mexican actor Demian Bichir is also set to star. Returning as Machete Cortez, the Mexican ex-federale himself, is Danny Trejo.

The film will revolve around Machete, who is recruited by the U.S. government. His mission? To find (and stop) a Mexican cartel leader from setting off a fatal missile. Mel Gibson will be playing the cartel leader. (Seriously.)

Production starts this month, so they better sign Vergara quick!
