Robert Rodriguez : Why no Ethan Maniquis on Machete 2?

Why no Ethan Maniquis on Machete 2?

Why did he not re-team up with the Machete 1 co-director? And why did he not write the script himself?

Re: Why no Ethan Maniquis on Machete 2?

The story goes that Ethan Maniquis and RR had a falling out. Maniquis was originally the sole director on Machete and RR got involved and slowly took it away from him. Or so the story goes.

Why he didn't write Machete Kills himself, I have no clue.

I'm not suggesting there isn't some truth in the above, but Maniquis could never have been the sole director, as Rodriguez shot a lot of the footage for the original Grindhouse trailer.
