It’s been seven long years since Robert Rodriguez & Frank Miller's Sin City revitalised the idea of comic book adaptations, as well as revolutionising green screen graphics. The film was virtually identical to the source material and has rightly become a cult classic, but now it looks like a sequel is on its way. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is expected to be released in 2013, adapted from Miller’s graphic novel of the same name, and is setting up to be, in the words of its creator: “epic”
Rodriguez said of the project:

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.

In another interview with MTV, the director said of the possible cast for the sequel:

I just had lunch with Mickey [Rourke] this weekend. He’s all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one. I saw Rosario [Dawson] too. I ran into her for something else, and she’s pumped. They’ve always been excited about doing another one, so that will be fun.

And, in the final bit of Sin City news, Michael Madsen is also reprising his role as corrupt cop Bob in A Dame To Kill For.

Film poster of the day: Man the latest season of Modern Family has gotten a bit extreme eh? Nah, but Sofia Vergara, with gun-boobs. If you didn’t already want to see Machete Kills, you do now.

Spy Kids Spin-Off of the day: Okay, so it doesn’t have much, if any, competition in that category, but even if it did, the Machete franchise would still come out on top. With a cast of Lady Gaga, Sofia Vergara, Michelle Rodriguez, Cuba Gooding Jr, Antonio Banderas, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba and of course Danny Trejo, Machete Kills looks even more ridiculous and over-the-top than the original.

Trailer: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
If you can ignore the incongruous dubstep soundtrack, this is a killer first look at the Sin City sequel. Adapted and directed once again by Robert Rodriguez and source writer Frank Miller, it’s much of the same as the first film; artificial noir goodness, rain-soaked streets, backstabbing, ubiquitous crime and a lotta violence. Returning to their roles are Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King and Powers Boothe, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin (as detective Dwight McCarthy, pre-facial reconstruction to look like Clive Owen), Eva Green, Stacey Keach, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Lady Gaga the newcomers to the franchise. You best keep your eyes peeled for this one come August because, as Gordon-Levitt states, “you go in with your eyes open, or you don’t come out at all”.
