When Sin City was released in 2005, the stated plan was for two sequels to get made, one in 2006 and one in 2007. However it’s now 2012 and we’re still waiting, with Robert Rodriguez having spent the last seven years teasing the idea of a sequel but many suspecting it would never get made.
That’s just changed though, as Rodriguez and Sin City creator Frank Miller, along with producer Alexander Rodnyansky, have announced that production will commence soon on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
“The first question I am always asked is, ‘When will you make another Sin City?’,” said Robert Rodriguez. “I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but 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. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will certainly be worth the wait.”
Sin City creator, screenwriter and co-director Frank Miller added, “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like 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.”
The script and details of the film’s story are being kept tightly under wraps, suggesting it may not be based on previously published Miller comics, but casting will begin next week, with many of the original cast expected to return. (Source: Variety)
