Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to Reteam for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

With Robert Rodriguez being attached to so several projects over the past couple of years and very couple of of them in fact materializing, it is great to hear that 1 of his most anticipated films is finally moving forward. This week Dimension Films have announced that they are gearing up for production on the sequel to his acclaimed adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel Sin City. The film is officially titled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, and Rodriguez will as soon as once again co-direct with Miller. Casting is about to get underway, despite the fact that it really is not clear how several of the characters from the initial film will return this time about. Rodriguez had this to say in the official press release:


“The initial question I am usually asked is ‘When will you make yet another Sin City?’… I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he developed because the day we wrapped the original, but have felt a duty to the fans to wait till we had some thing genuinely exceptional that would meet and exceed what have grow to be epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will surely be worth the wait.”

I am excited for this, but I do wonder if perhaps they waited a bit as well extended. The original Sin City made $ 158 million worldwide back in 2005, and despite the fact that that was deemed a respectable return on its $ 40 million budget, a handful of factors have changed in the past seven years. For a single, Frank Miller tried to carve out a directorial profession for himself with The Spirit and failed miserably. For yet another, direct page-to-screen translations of graphic novels are now a dime a dozen in Hollywood.

The script was co-written by William Monaghan (The Departed) and is supposedly based on Miller’s A Dame to Kill For graphic novel. Even so, because the original film took pieces from The Tough Goodbye, The Massive Fat Kill and That Yellow Bastard, it appears secure to assume that this may well draw from some of the other books as nicely. Script facts are getting kept under wraps but the film is expected to shoot this summer. Are you looking forward to Sin City two? Which characters and stories would you like to see in this film?
