MODERN Family‘s Sofia Vergara is in talks to join the cast of Machete Kills alongside Danny Trejo.

If successful, the actress would add even more sizzle to a cast of female supporting characters that already includes Jessica Alba, Amber Heard and Michelle Rodriguez.

Once again directed by Robert Rodriguez, the sequel will see Trejo reprising his role as the titular ex-federale as he is recruited by the US government to stop an arms dealer (played by Mel Gibson) from launching a deadly missile.

Vergara is being lined up to play the leather-clad Madame Desdemona, whose Mexican harlots have information that Machete needs, according to Variety.

Demian Bichir, who was Oscar nominated for A Better Life has also joined the ensemble.

Production on the movie is scheduled to start this month.

Vergara, who plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in Modern Family, has already started to branch into movies, havingrecently appeared in Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve and the Farrelly brothers’ comedy The Three Stooges.
