Personally, I think they waited a little too long for this sequel. The style developed for the first one has been aped so many times now that hopefully they can come up with something a little different.
But also, as Bleeding Cool noted, the press release sent out with the announcement never actually says who is directing SIN CITY 2. It says Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are involved, but it’s never mentioned if they’re directing as a team, if one of them is doing it individually or if they’re both just overseeing the project and handing the directing reigns to a Rodriguez protege—like he did with the (in my opinion, anyway) disappointing PREDATORS.
I guess we’ll see.
Here’s some news that probably should’ve hit somewhere around 2006.
Seven (!) years after the release of “Sin City,” filmmaking duo Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are ready to officially begin production on what was once the highly anticipated sequel, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”
“A Dame to Kill For” is one of the better “Sin City” books written and illustrated by Miller (this writer might even say it’s the all-time best, next to “That Yellow Bastard”). The story features ex-newspaper photographer turned seedy private investigator Dwight McCarthy (before he received the plastic surgery that made him look like Clive Owen in the first movie) becoming sexually obsessed with an irresistible femme fatale (and former lover), Ava Lord (a role we have a feeling will be offered to some hottie Rodriguez alum like Rose McGowan or Salma Hayek).
