What’s doin, Bastards? Sounds like when he’s not dodging bullets and bedding hot dames, Machete is dodging process servers and court orders. Deadline is reporting that Overnight Productions wants to cut ties with Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions over the rights to MACHETE KILLS.
“If successful, the court action could stop the release of the film – which Open Road acquired for distribution from Quick Draw last month. The complaint filed Tuesday (read it here), the producers of 2010’s Machete are seeking to terminate the April 2012 agreement in which they granted director/producer Rodriguez the rights to make another action movie about the rogue Mexican Federale. The rights would revert back to Rick Schwartz’s Overnight. The plaintiffs are seeking $2 million in damages. 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”. The plaintiffs estimate that they are owed in excess of $250,000.” Odds are good we still get eyeballs on this as planned. Whether that’s and out of court settlement or another kind of deal the suits work out, MACHETE will KILL again.
MACHETE KILLS stars Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, William Sadler, Sofia Vergara, Electra and Elise Avellan, Lady Gaga, Edward James Olmos, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Zoe Saldana, Alexa Vega and every other hot chick in Hollywood.
