Well, looks like it's finally on it's way after many rumours and false starts in the past seven years.

Empire Online wrote:
About a month ago, word came through that Robert Rogriguez was finally committing himself to the long-developing Sin City sequel. The news was met with a degree of cautious excitement, and a lot of we'll-believe-it-when-we-see-it shrugging, but word has this morning come through from Dimension Films that the newly officially monikered Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is properly up and running. Yeesh!

"The first question I'm always asked is 'When will you make another Sin City?'" says Rodriguez in the press release. "I've wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but we 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!"

Frank Miller chimes in with "The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything lke 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."

Miller has written the screenplay in cahoots with William Monahan (The Departed), and while details are under wraps, previous intel has suggested that there will be three stories and a wrap-around as before, and that the A Dame To Kill For segment will be joined by two new instalments that aren't based on pre-existing Miller comics. "You won't find those in a book," said Rod in March. "Those will be surprises."

The title story has Marv in it, which ought to suggest Mickey Rourke's showing up again (although he's hedged about wearing the make-up again in the past). Dimension's statement says simply that, "Many of the original cast are expected to return."

Official casting begins next week, and shooting, in all senses, starts in the summer.

cynical as it sounds...

believe it when I see it.

huge Sin City fan, right here. been waiting for the sequel forever, natch. loved the first.

...and on the subject of 'cash-ins'? not that it was, but... in terms of non-studio-made works... for those who haven't seen it:



saw this when it was first released, years ago. loved it then. still love it now. one of my all-time favourite yarns. and, in my opinion, one of Miller's best. goes without saying that BBB is my favourite Sin City book. ^_^

Release date announced. I'd imagine it may move about between now and screening.

There is a lengthy red band trailer up for the film now. I would post it here but the [/youtube] function is not working for me.

Instead here is a link:
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDW3r-yIKHU


Because it is red band and contains content deemed mature, people may have to sign in to view the video.

Watched this last night and while I didn't think it was as bad as people have made out. It wasn't that good and I was a bit confused by whole timeline.

With Marv being alive I assumed the film was a prequel but Nancy's storyline was obviously set after the first movie. So you had half a film that was taking place before the first film and half of it that wasn't. Nancy's story particularly muddled things further and they should have just stuck to the source material although in my opinion all the best stuff from the books happened in the first movie.

Speaking of the source material I've read it enough so I knew about Dwight's transformation but I think anyone who hasn't read the books would probably be thinking should the constant mention of Dwights name mean something to me?
