It’s hard to image with the unmitigated success of Robert Rodriguez’s noirish adaptation of Frank Miller’s comic book Sin City, that either a studio, Rodriguez or Frank Miller did rush a sequel into production. That’s the Hollywood norm. Yet, the movie was released waaaay back in 2005.
Speaking to Comics2Film, producer Stephan L’Heureux said “Sin City 2 will go into production in the second half of 2010. Unlike the first movie, which used graphic novels as both screenplay and storyboards, the sequel will be based on an original script by Miller. As with the original, Miller will co-direct with Robert Rodriguez.”
Even with a Predator update and Machete flick in the works, it’s unclear whether or not a Sin City sequel fits into the director’s time line. What this could indicate is that Rodriguez will be producing or heavily involved from a distance, while Frank Miller directs solo. That’s a scary proposition for anyone who attempted to sit through the putrid Spirit. [via]
