Robert Rodriguez film could be blocked

Nov 21 2012, 2:05am CST | by

Robert Rodriguez could be prevented from releasing 'Machete Kills' following a lawsuit filed by Overnight Productions.

Robert Rodriguez could be prevented from releasing 'Machete Kills'.
Overnight Productions - the company behind the 2010 movie 'Machete' - have filed a complaint over the rights to the project and are seeking to terminate the agreement they made with the director-and-producer in April 2012 in which they agreed he could make a follow-up film through his Quick Draw Productions and are also looking for $2 million in damages.
Overnight Productions claim they were not provided with Texas tax credit information as required under the agreement and have also experienced difficulties over the fee owned to their owner Rick Schwartz.
The suit, which has been obtained by Deadline.com, states: ''Defendants have also failed and refused to provide the required budget information to Overnight Productions so that it can determine the producer fee owed with respect to the sequel''.
'Machete Kills' - the second in a planned trilogy from the director - sees Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez return alongside Charlie Sheen, who plays the US President, Lady Gaga, Amber Heard, Mel Gibson and Sofia Vergara.
'Machete Kills' is scheduled for release in spring 2013.

This is a genre film through and through to the point that the trailer almost feels like it was directed by a young, foreign Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez. The press release cites influences from spaghetti westerns, horror and ...

‘Stretch’ Trailer: Patrick Wilson’s Wild Limo Ride

Sep 26 2014 1:26pm CDT | Source: screen rant

Joe Carnahan’s best received movies tend to be his most somber; see 2012′s The Grey as well as 2002′s Narc, his sophomore effort and his most highly praised to date. Funny enough, both films represent a minority in his output, which is largely defined by shamelessly unhinged action operas in a similar vein to the works of genre auteurs like Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Guy Ritchie. Put another way, somber tone poems might be ...
