There has been a lot of speculation surrounding a sequel to 2005′s hit Sin City, directed by Robert Rodriguez. However, all finally appears to be set for the production to begin later this year for the follow-up, titled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Robert Rodriguez, who has a vast array of films to his name that include: Desperado, Spy Kids and Planet Terror, is returning to direct the sequel and will, again, be teaming up with actor/director Frank Miller. Speaking about the film Miller has said:
“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.”
A Dame To Kill For is a graphic novel written and illustrated by Frank Miller, but all plot details surrounding the film seem to be a kept secret for the time being. Nonetheless, casting is due to begin next week and many of the original cast are expected to make an appearance.
I think you’ll agree that this is great news and perhaps not the most surprising announcement considering the success of Sin City; grossing over $158 million worldwide. It certainly looked like a sequel was sure to come. It was a truly fantastic film that was unlike any other, and it gained a huge fan base who were eager for there to be a Sin City 2. So, seven years later it seems their wish may be granted!
