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”
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.
