[Movies] Machete Kills in the Center of Legal Battle, Film’s Release Could be Stopped
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.23.2012



According to deadline.com, Overnight Productions announced today that they want to cut ties with Robert Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions over the rights to Machete Kills. If this is successful, it could stop the release of the film.

In the complaint, filed Tuesday (here), the producers of the 2010 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. If the complaint goes through, the rights would revert back to Rick Schwartz's Overnight. The plaintiffs are seeking $2 million in damages.

Overnight claims that earlier in November, they were not provided with Texas tax credit information as required under the agreement with Rodriguez's company. The claim also notes the following: "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 in this aspect of their legal action.
