Sin City 2 Is A Mess Behind The Scenes Too
Things didn't exactly go too well for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For when it was released in theaters back in August. The movie was largely dumped on by critics (a big contrast compared to the reception of the first movie back in 2005) and then it completely underwhelmed at the box office (another big contrast).

This Rotten Week: Predicting Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, If I Stay Reviews And More
I’m coming in a day later than usual, but I’m hoping my fans didn’t get too crazy in the interim. The summer season in winding down. How can I tell? It’s feeling just a bit cooler in the air, the Back To School commercials are in full force, and the movies look a few degrees worse. That’s last one is the real barometer. When the flicks start looking rough, fall is officially on its way. This week we’ve got Sin City, teenagers deciding to stay and some high school football.

Sin City 3 Is Already In The Works
It took nearly a decade for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to reteam after working on 2005’s Sin City. Despite the fact that Rodriguez kept promising that a sequel was in the works, he kept putting his attention towards other projects, constantly delaying what would wind up being Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. But now that the sequel is less than a month away from release, Rodriguez and Miller are apparently once again talking about a follow-up.

Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For Trailer Wants To Get Hard Boiled
Again we're looking at multiple stories, using the 1993 graphic novel as partial inspiration. The title story is actually a prequel, revisiting Dwight, the character played in the first film by Clive Owen. This time around, the part is essayed by Josh Brolin, and he's lassoed into a revenge plot that involves the towering gangster Manute.

Eva Green's Sin City 2 Poster Shot Down By The MPAA For Excessive Nudity

Josh Brolin Gets Behind the Wheel In New Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Image
It's still somewhat hard to believe, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is actually happening. We have been hearing promises for a sequel since the first movie arrived in theaters back in 2005, but due to scheduling conflicts and other projects that have caught Rodriguez's attention (he has released five movies since then) the movie was constantly thrown on to the back burner.

Bruce Willis Coming Back To Sin City For Sequel
“Bruce is back, so he will be seen,” Rodriguez states, though he stays vague beyond that, and I’m OK with it. We don’t want to have all of the surprises from a second Sin City spoiled long before Rodriguez even completes filming. In addition to Willis, he mentioned roles for Juno Temple, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Josh Brolin Takes Over For Clive Owen As Dwight In Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
When it was announced that the central story of Robert Rodriguez's upcoming Sin City sequel would be A Dame To Kill For the big question on fans' mind was, "What do you do about Dwight?" While the character was played by Clive Owen in Rodriguez's first Frank Miller adaptation, that story - The Big Fat Kill - is actually set after A Dame To Kill For and, most importantly, after Dwight underwent major plastic surgery to hide his real appearance.

Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jaime King are returning to reprise their roles from the first film.

Just yesterday it was revealed Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to the sequel, and now Christopher Meloni has scored a role in the film.

Dennis Haysbert Taking Over For Michael Clarke Duncan In Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Those who have read Frank Miller's Sin City series have known that there would be a slight hiccup when it came to casting Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, namely the part of Manute. In Robert Rodriguez's 2005 film the character was played by Michael Clarke Duncan, but the Oscar nominated actor sadly died earlier this year.

Is This The First Teaser Poster For Sin City: A Dame To Kill For?
Count me as part of the camp that won't believe Robert Rodriguez is actually making Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. In addition to the fact that it's been seven years since the first film was release, Rodriguez has been promising the sequel for years and has never actually come close to actually starting production, instead distracted by movies like Grindhouse, Machete, Shorts, Shark Boy and Lava Girl and Spy Kids 4D: All The Time In The World.

Mickey Rourke And Rosario Dawson Will Return For Sin City Sequel
Robert Rodriguez has been promising a sequel to his sleek and sexy Sin City since 2005, but last week, after years of empty promises, fans were finally rewarded for their patience. Dimension Films announced Sin City 2 - rechristened as Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For - would at long last go into production. With news that casting would begin this week came the vague assurance that much of the original cast would surely return.

William Monahan Brought On To Rewrite Sin City 2
Monahan has added yet another flick to his growing list of upcoming projects in the form of Sin City 2. The original film was penned by Frank Miller, who also wrote the graphic novel the film was based on, so this will be the first time someone other than Miller will be messing with the material. But, having someone who can write as sharply as Monahan will add an edge to this sequel that the first one lacked.

Will Miller Return To Sin City In 2009?
I’ve given up hope that we’ll ever see a sequel to Sin City. It’s an acceptance I’m okay with though. A second picture might detract from what the first movie managed to accomplish; make it less special, if you will. We want the only competition Sin City has to be Frank Miller’s horrendous take on The Spirit, which helps remind us why Sin City was so cool in the first place.
