‘Sin City 2’ to Shoot in April?
Frank Miller and Eva Mendes are doing the rounds of interviews as the December 25 premier of The Spirit inches closer and journalists are seeking every shred of information about future projects from the director and actress including both returning for Sin City 2, the long-awaited sequel to 2005’s Sin City.
At IGN, Miller said, “Sin City 2 is written. It’s mainly a matter of working out the details of the production. I’m hoping to do it with Robert Rodriguez again in the same circumstances that we did the first one, and we could begin shooting again as early as April.” The script is said to be adapting the graphic novels A Dame to Kill For which as a prequel to prequel to The Hard Goodbye. The focus will be on Blue Eyes and the Old Town Girls while a new Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) story will be included.
Rosario Dawson confirmed to IESB that she will return as Gail while Mendes has told the press she’ll also be back.
Mickey Rourke told MTV last week he’s ready to return as Marv but then Superherohype reported this weekend that Rourke has no interest in returning. Could he not like the script or be holding out for more money? Who can say?
The fact remains that the film still needs to sort out accreditation issues with the director’s guild.
