None other than Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez distributed a press release today announcing the 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' is officially in production. 'Sin City 2' has long been rumored, with stars like Johnny Depp & Angelina Jolie attached to join the already star-studded cast, and with the Weinstein Company producing, who knows where we could end up here.
Obviously, specifics are being kept tightly under wraps, but Frank Miller's 'A Dame To Kill For' graphic novel centers around Dwight, played in the original 'Sin City' by Clive Owen. Since my favorite scene in the original is the car scene during Dwight's storyline (guest directed by Quentin Tarantino no less), I'm pumped for this. Evidently, so are Rodriguez & Miller:
“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. 'A Dame To Kill For' will certainly be worth the wait."Frank Miller:
“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.""Ferocious"??? "Go even further than the first"?! A dude got his nuts shot off within the first 5 minutes of the original. How much further and ferocious could we go?
