Dimension Films announced today that Sin City directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are set to begin production on their much anticipated sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Casting will begin next week and the film is expected to shoot over the summer in Austin, TX.
Rodriguez said via press release:
The first question I am always asked is “When will you make another Sin City?
I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations.
A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait.
Miller, on whose graphic novel Sin City was based on, promised that he and Rodriguez were going to “shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.”
The sequel is an adaptation of Miller’s “A Dame to Kill For” with the script co-written by Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). AR Films and Quick Draw Productions are producing. Harvey and Bob Weinstein serve as executive producers.
Oh … and many from the original’s cast are said to be returning.
