Amber Heard, the blonde who turned up the heat in "The Rum Diary," is at it again. This time, the bombshell is in talks to become the latest femme fatale in the Robert Rodriguez action flick, "Machete Kills," the sequel to the 2010 Grindhouse hit "Machete." (Insert men cheering here.)

According to Variety, Danny Trejo will return as the titular lead, along with beauties Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. Oh, and Mel Gibson may be stopping by. In other words, Trejo is one lucky ex-federale.

In this installment, Machete finds himself recruited by the U.S. government to stop an arms dealer (played by Gibson — which is almost eerily frightening) from launching a deadly missile.

If Heard inks the deal, the starlet will play a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio, which, we have to say, is definitely one of the best character names we've heard in a while and if anyone can rock that moniker, it's her.

The actress better decide soon, however, because lensing is slated to start as soon as the end of this month in Austin, Texas, and from what we've heard, Gibson doesn't like to be kept waiting.
