Those of you clamoring for a sequel to Sin City just may finally get it.
Robert Rodriguez took to the ACL Live stage at the Moody Theater at the SXSW Film Festival to announce several new Quickdraw Productions, one of which is the sequel to the 2005 (has it really been 7 years already?!) adaptation of Frank Miller’s popular comic series.
Alongside Machete 2, which begins shooting in April, Rodriguez states that Sin City 2, after several fits and starts, is likely to begin production over the summer. THR states that he’s thus far mum on casting, though he was willing to indicate that discussions with potential stars of both projects will be of the same caliber and eclecticism as the first films, which featured Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Josh Hartnett, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal. Co-directed by Miller and long-time collaborator Quentin Tarantino, the film was set in Sin City, the film interconnects storylines that involve the unsavory inhabitants of the town.
Danny Trejo returns for Machete Kills, the sequel to the film adaptation of Rodriguez’s faux trailer from Grindhouse in which Trejo starred as Machete, a Mexican, an ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, and is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.
