‘Machete Kills’ Is In Trouble: Producers Threaten To Kill The Sequel

Uh oh. Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills is in some serious trouble. The producers of the film have taken action against the filmmaker’s production company, and are looking to kill the film.

The Overnight Production producers, who also happen to own Robert Rodriguez’s Machete sequel, have filed a $2 million lawsuit against the filmmaker’s production company, Quick Draw Productions. Overnight is claiming that they were not provided with Texas’ tax credit information as was required under their agreement with Quick Draw.

If the Overnight producers get their way, they could stop the release of the film, which Open Road has already acquired for distribution.

Overnight also claims that Quick Draw failed and refused to provide the required budget information to them, and thus they were unable to determine the producer fee with respect to the sequel.

You can read the full lawsuit here.

Machete Kills brings back Danny Trejo as the titular ex-federale and follows him as he gets recruited by the U.S. government to take down a cartel leader and stop an arms dealer from launching a deadly missile.

The film also stars Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, Lady GaGa, Vanessa Hudgens, Charlie Sheen, Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Alexa Vega, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Demian Bichir.

The film is expected to hit theaters in 2013.

    Robert should’ve been working on Sin City 2 instead of a sequel to a trash flick like Machete.

    Didn’t care much about the first one…..Rodriquezs’ movies have all been pretty crappy for the last couple of years. His last decent flick was Planet Terror….but ever since then. All crap. In my opinion, He needs t ditch this shit, and get working on Sin City 2.

    Frankly R. Rodriguez is awful. He is essentially Tarantino’s bitch. Also how does Danny Trejo get jobs anymore? He is uglier than Edward James Olmos and a terrible actor. He needs to just be the actor who played “Deebo” and look mean.

    Hope they work out the production company kinks with contract. I would like to see this film made and out in theaters!
