Sin City 2 Is Officially Underway
Rodriguez and Miller bite the bullet

Sin City 2 Is Officially Underway

About a month ago, word came through that Robert Rogriguez was finally committing himself to the long-developing Sin City sequel. The news was met with a degree of cautious excitement, and a lot of we'll-believe-it-when-we-see-it shrugging, but word has this morning come through from Dimension Films that the newly officially monikered Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is properly up and running. Yeesh!

"The first question I'm always asked is 'When will you make another Sin City?'" says Rodriguez in the press release. "I've wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but we have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait!"

Frank Miller chimes in with "The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything lke it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first."

Miller has written the screenplay in cahoots with William Monahan (The Departed), and while details are under wraps, previous intel has suggested that there will be three stories and a wrap-around as before, and that the A Dame To Kill For segment will be joined by two new instalments that aren't based on pre-existing Miller comics. "You won't find those in a book," said Rod in March. "Those will be surprises."

The title story has Marv in it, which ought to suggest Mickey Rourke's showing up again (although he's hedged about wearing the make-up again in the past). Dimension's statement says simply that, "Many of the original cast are expected to return."

Official casting begins next week, and shooting, in all senses, starts in the summer.

If Owen's back, there may be some make up for him- Dwight has a Michael Knight style make over in this one that precedes the first film. Can't get around that, since Marv is alive in it too. Unless they just drop that bit. More

Can't wait!
@Whistler took the words right out of my mouth! FINALLY a Rodriguez film worth looking forward to. He's such a talented filmmaker and I feel he's shortchanged his potential and his fans over the past 6 years or so. He needs to stop all that Spy Kids Machete shite and get down to business making films like this and the Deadpool film he let slip through his fingers. More

Finally!
At last, a R Rodriguez film I can look forward to. I do hope Rourke doesn't decline because he has to wear make-up though, doesn't seem very actor-ish... More

A Dame To Kill For (spoilers)...
...If I remember correctly, is the story of how Dwight becomes Dwight. Will they be able to lure Clive Owen back in? And who'll play the titular Dame? And what will they do will Brittany Murphy's role? And why can't I find my shoes? More
