Machete is in outer space still doing what he does best!
In an interview given at Comic-Con this year, the director was quoted as saying: "It is a space opera. It does take place in space. Machete has to go into space, It's so absurd but it makes sense. You've got to go somewhere new in a third part why not go into space? It's going to be so fun. It's played straight. Remember 'Moonraker'? It's going to be like 'Machete' and 'Moonraker.'"
