Back in July we got our first look at Machete Kills, a new movie from director Robert Rodriguez (Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Sin City). Lady Gaga was rocking the official movie poster, as her character La Chameleon, and I thought it looked like a lot of fun. Since then, the movie has gone through some drama, but Gaga is officially coming to the big screen in September of this year. Click inside to learn more!
Complex has the story:
Good news for Machete Kills: Despite a pesky lawsuit threatening to halt its release, it looks like Open Road has given the Danny Trejo-starring project a premiere date. According to Deadline, the film will officially hit theaters on September 13, 2013.
As previously reported, the film hit a speed bump last November when the production company that worked on 2010’s Machete decided to cut ties with director Robert Rodriguez’s production company, Quick Draw Productions, over a financial dispute. They’re suing Quick Draw to prevent the sequel from being released, and are also seeking $2 million in damages. No word on exactly how the lawsuit is panning out, but it can likely be assumed by the fact that the film now has a release date that things aren’t going well.
Machete Kills also stars Jessica Alba, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, and Antonio Banderas.
I’m definitely excited for this one– Once Upon A Time In Mexico was a good flick and I like the way this cast sounds. What do you guys think? Are you excited to see Gaga make her acting debut?
