Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For – A Date with Jessica Alba?
Well, not exactly, but maybe just as good. Okay, not really at all, but we DO finally have a firm date set for our next visit to Sin City, a sequel to the first film that’s already 7 years old. A press release from Dimension Films has been circulating around the web announcing that Sin City will return to theaters on October 4th, 2013, once again helmed by Robert Rodriguez along with the creator of the graphic novels the films are based on, Frank Miller.
Back in April, the Criminal Complex gang brought the word that we were getting closer to something a bit more tangible on the Sin City front, and much of which was at least hinted at back then has been made official by today’s press release (see below). One odd bit is that while in April it seemed like Rosario Dawson was in, this release only confirms the return of Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba, details that Miller has been spinning since last Fall during SDCC. The press release is oddly worded (almost bogus-like) saying “huge” actors will be announced soon, and one wonders if one will be the much (and forever) rumored Angelina Jolie.
As previously reported, Sin City 2 will be based on Miller’s A Dame to Kill For, which was actually the first Sin City miniseries published wholly within its own title. The previous film took elements from The Hard Goodbye which was serialized in the Dark Horse Presents anthology, and The Big Fat Kill and That Yellow Bastard, which were published after A Dame to Kill For. Previous reports have suggested that Miller has said that this film will incoporate two brand new stories to go with the tale chronicled in A Dame to Kill For. Check out the press release below.
FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR IN THEATERS NATIONWIDE ON OCTOBER 4, 2013
ORIGINAL CAST MEMBERS MICKEY ROURKE AND JESSICA ALBA RETURN FOR THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SEQUEL
New York, NY (14 May 2012) — Dimension Films announced today that the highly anticipated sequel FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will open nationwide on October 4, 2013. Casting is underway, with original cast members returning to work with directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, from their script co-written by Academy Award® winner William Monahan . Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba are already confirmed to return.
The script and details of the film’s story are being kept tightly under wraps. The remaining cast will be announced shortly with some huge names expected to fill the roles of Sin Ciy’s newest characters yet to be seen on the big screen.
The original SIN CITY broke new ground with its iconic stylish look and grossed over $160 million worldwide. FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will not only bring fans back to the world that Rodriguez and Miller created, but will also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D.
The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada, and produced by Quick Draw Productions, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.
Aldamisa International’s C.O.O. Jere Hausfater and President of International Sales and Distribution Nadine de Barros and will oversee international sales for this project at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film is expected to begin production this summer at Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
