Lindsay Lohan and Robert De Niro have reportedly joined the cast of upcoming movie Machete.

The Mean Girls star was previously rumoured to be considering a role in Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse follow-up, while De Niro was reportedly in talks to play crooked political figure Senator McLaughlin.

The pair have now officially joined Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Steven Seagal, Jeff Fahey and Don Johnson on the project, which began filming this week, Variety reports.

Danny Trejo will reprise his role from the 2007 mock movie trailer, playing a machete-wielding Mexican ex-federate who works as a day labourer while he hides out from a corrupt politician who double-crossed him.

Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis will co-direct the movie.
