Los Angeles - Zoe Saldana has signed up for Machete Kills.

The Star Trek actress will appear alongside Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez in the follow-up to 2010 action movie Machete, and Danny Trejo - who is set to reprise his role as blade-wielding Mexican Federale Machete Cortez - can't wait to kiss all three girls in the film.

He said: "The sequel to Machete, Machete Kills is going to be a lot more over-the-top than Machete.

Sin City

"We've got Sofia Vergara, who is a star in her own right, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Zoe Saldana - and guess what? I get to kiss all of 'em."

Amber Heard is in line to play an assassin in the motion picture, which will see Michelle and Jessica reprise their roles of a taco-truck lady and an immigrations officer, with Robert Rodriguez returning to direct the project.

Machete Kills - which is scheduled to begin shooting in Texas soon - will see Cortez aim to stop Mel Gibson's villain from firing a missile.

As well as looking forward to reprising his role in the film, Danny is also hoping to land a part in Robert's forthcoming Sin City sequel.

When asked if he would like to star in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, he joked to Moviehole: "I better, if [Rodriguez] wants to do Machete 3.

"In fact, you can go ahead and print 'Robert, let's get Trejo in Sin City 2."
