Well ain't this a kick in the teeth. It appears that Overnight Productions may have the last word in whether or not we'll ever get to enjoy Robert Rodriguez's grindhouse action sequel 'Machete Kills' The production company has stated that it wants to cut all ties with Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions over the rights to the follow-up, currently shooting. A compaint was filed on Tuesday and the producers of 2010's 'Machete' are looking to sever the April 2012 agreement in which they granted director/producer Rodriguez the rights to make another 'Machete' movie. The rights would then revert back to Overnight Productions. The production was hotting up and already had the impressive line-up which features Jessica Alba ('Sin City'), Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution'), Amber Heard -below ('Drive Angry'), Vanessa Hudgens ('Sucker Punch'), Zoe Saldana ('Avatar'), Alexa Vega, Sofia Vergara ('Modern Family'), the Avellan twins ('Planet Terror'), Lady Gaga, Edward James Olmos ('Dexter'), Charlie Sheen, William Sadler, Mel Gibson and Demian Bichir. More below.

The reason for all this? "Overnight claims that earlier this month they were not provided with Texas tax credit information as required under the agreement with Rodriguez's company. "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 new film finds Machete (Trejo) recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man. Machete must battle his way through Mexico to take down a madman cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet with a weapon in space. Machete takes on an army in an effort to dismantle a plan for global anarchy."
