Sin City 2 Is A Mess Behind The Scenes Too

19 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Things didn't exactly go too well for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For when it was released in theaters back in August. The movie was largely dumped on by critics (a big contrast compared to the reception of the first movie back in 2005) and then it completely underwhelmed at the box office (another big contrast). And as if that situation wasn't bad enough, now even more is going wrong behind the scenes. Robert Rodriguez and his affiliate companies have filed a lawsuit against the financiers of both Sin City 2 and Machete Kills, claiming that he never received a payment of $7.7 million that was promised to him. The lawsuit has been filed specifically against Sergei Bespalov, Marina Bespalov, Maddartico, Vrelonovama, Aldamisa Entertainment and SC2 Productions, alleging both breach of contract and fraud. Variety notes that part of the claim says that the filmmaker was »

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has sued the financers of “Sin City 2″ and “Machete Kills,” alleging non-payment of $7.7 million.

It alleged breach of contract and fraud. The suit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

“In order to induce Plaintiffs to enter into agreements with various of the Defendants relating to the Pictures, Defendants, including, specifically, Sergei Bespalov, falsely assured and represented to Plaintiffs that Defendants had more than sufficient financial resources and cash flow – not only from and related to the Pictures, but also from other projects – to honor all of their financial obligations to Plaintiffs.”

The suit alleged that when the money was not paid as promised, Rodriguez paid from his own funds to “Machete Kills” screenwriter Kyle Ward.

Pierce Brosnan Will Make You Feel The Urge

29 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pierce Brosnan is back! He never strictly went away, but it still feels like it’s been an age since we’ve seen him onscreen. On the heels of his recent thriller, The November Man, he’ll return to ethically-questionable material as he’s set to play a drug creator in Urge.

Aaron Kaufman, who produced Sin City: A Dame To Kill For and Machete Kills, is on board to make his directorial debut based on the script he co-penned with Jerry Stahl and Jason Zumwalt.

Taking place in the middle of nowhere, Urge follows a group of friends on vacation who decide that quad biking, bungee jumping and sex with strangers doesn’t constitute fun. They decide to take a new drug, created by Brosnan’s character, that alters a person’s way of thinking. Yes, most drugs do that. This one removes people’s ability to control their urges. »

Meet ‘Redeemer': Chilean Batman, Instrument of God’s Wrath

19 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Sometime after making the highly entertaining, ass-kicking spy spoof Mandrill, martial artist and budding action star Marko Zaror wasn’t sure what to do with his time. He had begun considering going into real fighting — Mma style bouts that could help pay the bills. Then Robert Rodriguez called and asked him to make a memorable appearance in the otherwise unmemorable Machete Kills . It was back to acting and in the end, back to Austin where Kills debuted at Fantastic Fest 2013. It was in this moment, Zaror explains, that he decided that he wanted to come back with another movie. It was later that night, in Austin, over drinks with the two ladies in his life — his girlfriend and his mom — that Redeemer was born. Now here he is, back in Austin. Still kicking ass on the big screen. Cut to a shot of Zaror from behind, sitting on a bed. We »

2 September 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cuba Gooding Jr. has a great body, and he's not afraid to show it off! The 46-year-old Oscar winner hit the beach in Malibu this Labor Day weekend shirtless, showing off his fit, chiseled physique (hello, abs!) in red, white and blue swim shorts. Cuba also wore a hat to shield his face from the harmful Uv rays, but he actually exposed one area where the sun doesn't typically shine... Yep, we're talking about Cuba's booty! The Machete Kills star playfully pulled down his swim trunks, revealing some serious tan lines and a decent amount of butt crack. (Usually, crack is whack, but in this case, it appeared to be all in good fun.) It's hard to believe when he has a body like that, but Cuba »

Michael Bay Bringing Cosmic Motors To The Big Screen

1 September 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Michael Bay is certainly no stranger to making movies based around shiny vehicles - that was basically the impetus behind all four Transformer titles. And while the director has said that he won't be back for the inevitable Transformers 5, that doesn't mean he's done playing around with flashy cars. Enter Cosmic Motors, a new film based on an adaptation of a concept art book that Bay is now producing and shepherding to the big screen. Cosmic Motors was written by Daniel Simon and first published back in 2007, but is only now on the fast track to become a movie, thanks to a partnership between Michael Bay and Warner Bros. Thought it's not yet clear exactly how the film will function story-wise, Kyle Ward has been brought on to pen the screenplay. His previous credits include the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel Machete Kills, as well as the upcoming Hitman sequel Agent 47. »

Michael Bay Drives To Cosmic Motors

1 September 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Whether or not Michael Bay ends up directing Transformers 5, high-concept sci-fi vehicles are clearly still a part of his future. He's currently in the process of setting up Cosmic Motors at Warner Bros., a film based on Daniel Simon's book of lavish concept art. Kyle Ward, who wrote Machete Kills and the new Hitman movie Agent 47, has been tasked with creating the screenplay.Ward will also need to come up with a narrative on which to hang it, since Cosmic Motors in book form is more about concept than story. Simon has worked as a car designer for Lamborghini and Bugatti, as well as on projects like Tron: Uprising, Captain America: The First Avenger and Oblivion. His book imagines "spaceships, pods, race cars, giant trains, warships and balloons from various planets of the Galaxion system... from concept to completion" via sketches and 3D modelling.There's already a »
