Michelle RodriguezMichelle Rodriguez is not a shy gal, and she's more than happy to discuss with reporters what she really wants to do with her life -- and that's to write. In an interview with Cinematical about Machete (which I highly encourage you to go see, if you like things that are awesome), she spilled the beans on some scripts she's working on.

"I'm writing three things right now, honey. I'm busting booty!" she said. "Girlfight was my first movie, and now I'm like, ten years later, a decade later, I'm ready to do what I got into the business for, and I'm doing three projects right now... It's gnarly. Hopefully something will pop out of this, and we can start making some cool movies with chicks in it."

The first and most tangible script is a remake of the German films Bandits, about four girls who get together as a band behind bars. "That's gonna be fun to cast, man," Rodriguez said, laughing. "I'm about 40 pages into it, into the second act, and I'm loving it. I've got a new stylized kind of format to shoot it in, and I'm hoping that we find some interesting and some cool director to pull it off. Because it's not every day you come across someone who understands beauty in the [mundane], and I need somebody like that to both shoot it and direct it, so it's going to be tough.

It's not just the story line. The story line, for me, is easy. It comes second nature [to me]. The hard part is going to be finding somebody to interpret it and understand what sexy is and what beautiful is and what pop culture is, because all of these elements are going to be so important to the project."
