If you thought the zany casting of Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" started and ended with Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson, guess again. Robert Rodriguez hit Twitter today to announce: "I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" And along with it, he added a character poster that reveals she, rather appropriately, plays a character named La Chameleon.

If you thought the zany casting of Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" started and ended with Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson, guess again.

Robert Rodriguez hit Twitter today to announce: "I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" And along with it, he added a character poster that reveals she, rather appropriately, plays a character named La Chameleon. No word yet if she brought her own wardrobe to the shoot. The "Machete" franchise has already made a name for itself for being a bit more adventurous with its participants, but even this is pretty surprising, though we'd guess Stefani Germanotta's appearance will be a boosted up cameo, but not much more.

And that's not all that's arriving from the set of the film, as earlier today Alexa Vega (who has featured in Rodriguez's "Spy Kids" films) hit Instagram (via ComingSoon) to showcase her costume (such as it is) as KillJoy in the film.

Michelle Rodriguez, Demián Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba and of course, Danny Trejo, also feature in the movie that will find Machete tracking down an arms dealer with a nefarious plan to launch a deadly missile. No release date yet, but this thing is going to be...interesting.
