The release of Robert Rodriguez's sequel "Machete Kills" is just around the corner. The first film, which starred Danny Trejo as the ex-Federale agent, was a mix of action, humor and an abundance of colorful characters. Add the unique storytelling that Rodriguez has built his career on, and you certainly had a memorable film, that is definitely not for everyone.

The sequel, much like its predecessor, will feature a few random cameos. Charlie Sheen is one such cameo, and it's been reported that he'll be changing his name back to his birth name, Carlos Estevez, for the film. Seems fitting if there was ever an appropriate project, given the content.

It's common knowledge that Charlie took a screen name, just like his father Martin did, when he started making films. Charlie's brother Emilio decided to go a different path, and kept the family name instead of adopting the family stage one.

Is this Carlos' attempt to reinvent himself? This is the first film in his acting career that will not be billed under his stage name. It will be interesting to see if his behavior and not just his name will also be getting a makeover.

What do you make of this name change news? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Machete Kills" hits AMC Theatres on September 13.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
