Filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, along with producer Alexander Rodnyansky, have announced that production will commence on the highly anticipated sequel to 2005’s Sin City, entitled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film will be produced by AR Films and Quick Draw Productions, financed through AR Films U.S and released domestically by Dimension Films.
The script and details of the film’s story have been kept tightly under wraps. Casting will begin next week, with Mickey Rourke, Michael Clarke Duncan, Angelina Jolie, Rosario Dawson and Michael Madsen all strongly been rumored to return.
“Sin City: A Dame to Kill” For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Frank Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The book is about Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen) planing to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy (Jessica Alba) is trying to cope with Hartigan’s death.
The film is expected to begin production this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
The original Sin City was brought to the screen by Rodriguez and Miller and released by Dimension in 2005, and proved to be a landmark step forward in filmmaking, breaking ground with immersive green screen to create its iconic stylish look. The first film, released on April 1, 2005, grossed over $160 million (US) worldwide and is a consistently strong home video and television performer.
