Robert Rodriguez fans, 2013 isn’t your year. Not only is Machete Kills starting to look more and more like a one-note joke that just won’t end, the long-delayed sequel to Sin City, which was supposed to hit theaters this October, has now been pushed back nearly a year.
That’s right—Dimension films has yanked Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from its previously established release date of October 4, 2013 and dropped it nearly a year later at August 22, 2014, meaning that the gap from Sin City to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will now go from seven years to a whopping eight.
Dimension Films has given no reason for the delayed release, and it’s something of a surprise—though Rodriguez already has one film coming this year (the aforementioned Machete Kills), he’s a director known for working fast and dirty. Perhaps the extensive green screen work required for the Sin City look is taking longer than expected.
So you’ll have to wait another year to see a bunch of hard-boiled dialogue fall out of the mouths of a lot of pretty people (plus Mickey Rourke) as they skulk around and black and white CGI comic book fantasia. Or you could just rewatch Sin City, like the rest of us have been doing for the past seven years.
