Sofia Vergara is already the best paid of the Modern Family cast (although all the main actors get the same for the series, she earns a lot more in endorsement deals etc.), and now she’s making a bid for cinema stardom. As the pic above shows, she’ll soon be seen in Machete Kills, and it appears she’ll arrive with all boobs blazing.
However it’s not the only Vergara news we’ve got today, as THR reports that Sofía Vergara is in negotiations to play the female lead in a remake of the 1987 Burt Reynolds action thriller Heat. Jason Statham is already attached to star as a gambling addict who takes a series of protection and security jobs in Las Vegas to support his addiction. When his friend is badly beaten by the mafia, he puts everything aside to take on the mob by himself.
It’s not known exactly who Sofía Vergara’s role. Simon West (The Expendables 2) is directing from a screenplay by William Goldman, who wrote the novel the original movie is based on both the 1980s and new screenplay adaptation. There’s no news on when it might shoot.
