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.

Hoo-boy, people did not want to see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The box office prospects for the follow-up were already looking pretty dim following dismal reviews and lack of general interest, but few would have guessed that directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s stylized sequel would only make $6.4 million for the entire weekend—for the entire weekend!  That’s down 78% from the first fil ...

The first film was novel and striking in aesthetic, and the sequel still looks like almost nothing else. Sin City: A Dame to ...
