“Sometimes I feel like I’m in a dream world,” says director-producer Robert Rodriguez, “because it doesn’t always seem too logical how things work out.” Indeed, this year the film-maker is feeling a distinct case of deja vu. His first release this month will be a sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1987 film Predator, helmed by Hungarian director Nimród Antal, produced at his Troublemaker Studios outfit in Texas, and based on a script Rodriguez wrote as a writer for hire during a brief production hiatus in the mid-90s. The second is Machete, a self-directed (with Ethan Maniquis) “Mexploitation” flick about a Latin hitman who takes revenge on the gringos who double-crossed him. “I came up with them both in the same year,” Rodriguez marvels, “and now they’re coming out within months of each other, 15 years later. It’s pretty surreal.”
