Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez are set to act together again in new indie drama Skinny Dip, according to reports.

Hollywood hardman Danny and actress Michelle are already co-starring in Machete, which is due out in September.

Now The Los Angeles Times reports that both will star in Skinny Dip, a revenge movie.

The film, to be co-directed and produced by Danny's son Gilbert, centres around the story of a young woman who kills a policeman.

Danny has joked that he hopes his son, who is directing Skinny Dip with young filmmaker Frankie Latina, makes it as a filmmaker "so he can give me a job."

Machete, which also stars Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Robert De Niro and Jessica Alba, sees Danny play a part he describes as the "first Latino superhero."

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, Machete is an expansion of a fake trailer that was released together with the 2007 feature Grindhouse.
