Robert Rodriguez : Machete shared directors credit

Machete shared directors credit


Why did RR chose to share the directors seat on Machete? I understand why he did it with Sin City. But I am unsure why he chose to direct this film with first time director Ethan Maniquis? Did he bring something special to the table?

Re: Machete shared directors credit

I assume that Ethan Maniquis is Rodriguez protege or something like that, but the "Machete" Trivia or Discussion Board might have more info for that.

He supposedly pretty much scouted locations and did alot of preproduction work. Robert said all he did was show up the first day of filming while ethan had already done alot of work.
