Robert Rodriguez’ Machete Kills might be completed, but its expected late 2013 release date is unlikely. That’s because producers, Overnight Productions, have filed a lawsuit to reclaim the rights and to collect $2 million in damages.
So, Rodriguez’ Open Road currently has distribution rights, but because they did not report the Texas tax-credit information to Overnight, which would grant them something like $250,000, Overnight is going to deprive fans of the sequel to Machete a little longer. It sucks, but I’d do the same if someone owed me 250 Gs. Overnight is also threatening to cut ties with Rodriguez and his company.
Machete Kills stars Danny Trejo, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, and Alexa Vega.
