Sin City reminds me of an absentee parent who always promises to come around but never does. Ever since the original film was released in 2005 there’s been talk of a sequel. Fast forward to four years later and we still don’t have one. Fans have been waiting patiently to no avail, but director Robert Rodriguez continues to reassure the public that the movie is “on it’s way.” According to Screenrant, Rodriguez gave a recent interview where he exclusively discussed the progress of Sin City 2.
According to Rodriguez a sequel is in the works and he’s trying to take steps to make it happen. Unfortunately, his busy schedule has a way of interfering with the development process.
I actually had a phone call with some of the players in it today, but I was on a plane so I missed it… So next week we’re going to talk about it some more and get a timing on when we’d be doing it. But there’s a lot of people who are interested in it… We are definitely going to do that one.”
He also gave some insight into what stories from the Frank Miller novel will be featured this time around. The director definitely has his eye on “A Dame to Kill For” as well as a couple of others.
“There’s a lot of stories,” Rodriguez said. “That was sort of the approach I took to it. That’s why there’s three stories in the [first] movie, because I thought, ‘I love this material, but gosh, what happens if it’s not successful and I don’t get to make a part two and part three. I still want to see “The Big Fat Kill” and “That Yellow Bastard.”‘ So I wanted to put them all in one movie so I could at least get some of these stories out of my system. But there’s still so many books and so many stories to do.”
If and when this movie happens, I wonder if they will still go with Angelina Jolie for the lead in “A Dame to Kill For?” She’s been in talks to star in the film for years, but they continue to get backtracked. I was a fan of the first Sin City, but I know a choice few who weren’t. I’m interested in seeing more stories told on the big screen especially “That Yellow Bastard.” Even though I’m happy to hear some movement on this, I won’t put all my eggs in once basket. Rodriguez has a lot on his plate including his reboots of Predator and Red Sonja. When will he find the time to do it?
Do you think Sin CIty 2 will ever get made? Should Rodriguez put his other projects on hold to complete this one?
