Machete : Shared Directors Credit

Shared Directors Credit

Why did RR chose to share the directors seat on this outing? 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?

Re: Shared Directors Credit

I think RR had a lot on his plate at the time he shot it (he was producing Predators) and he had to divide his time between both productions. Ethan Maniquis has been a long time collaborator of RR, helping him edit a number of his previous pictures. Presumably, he has ambitions of directing and RR let him help out.
