The writer/director tweeted the announcement today, writing, “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!” with a link to view her character poster.
“Machete Kills,” the second film in the trilogy, will pick up with the title character mourning his lost love, the movie’s website reports. He is then recruited by the U.S. president to take down a cartel leader before he fires a missile at America.
Although Lady Gaga has been in a few skits and on “The Simpsons,” she has not yet made an appearance on the big screen. “Machete Kills” is due out in 2013.
