Apparently the Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) has been hired to work on the script from the recent draft that Miller has completed.

It has been a really slow progress but with Monahan onboard, I hope that the pace picks up.

Default Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

It's finally happening!

Official Press Release

Quote:
AUSTIN, TX (12 April 2012) — Filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, along with producer Alexander Rodnyansky, have announced that production will commence on the highly anticipated sequel to 2005’s Sin City, entitled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film will be produced by AR Films and Quick Draw Productions, financed through AR Films U.S and released domestically by Dimension Films.

“The first question I am always asked is “When will you make another Sin City? ,” said Rodriquez. “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.”

Sin City creator, screenwriter and co-director Frank Miller said, “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.“

The script and details of the film’s story have been kept tightly under wraps. Casting will begin next week, with many of the original cast expected to return. The film, a Quick Draw Production, will be produced by Rodriguez and producing partners Aaron Kaufman and Iliana Nikolic; and by Alexander Rodnyansky and Sergei Bespalov and Stephen L’Hereux. Miller, The Weinstein Company’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein and Miramax’s Adam Fields will act as executive producers. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Frank Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The film is expected to begin production this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

Alexander Rodnyansky said, “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Robert Rodriguez and Quick Draw Productions. It is a rare opportunity to produce and finance a film with the high profile and enormous fan base of the Sin City franchise. AR FIlms will be managing worldwide sales of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, as well as Robert’s Machete Kills at the Cannes Film Festival in May.”

The original Sin City was brought to the screen by Rodriguez and Miller and released by Dimension in 2005, and proved to be a landmark step forward in filmmaking, breaking ground with immersive green screen to create its iconic stylish look. The first film, released on April 1, 2005, grossed over $160 million (US) worldwide and is a consistently strong home video and television performer.

“Audiences have been clamoring for Sin City 2 with Robert and Frank for a long time and trust me, it will be worth the wait,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “This will be my 11th collaboration with Robert in 16 years and he’s become a great friend. I look forward to continuing our long lasting relationship and partnering on more projects in the future.”

The deal was negotiated by Aaron Kaufman, Craig Emanuel of Loeb & Loeb and Robert Newman of WME on behalf of Rodriguez; David Glasser and Andrew Kramer on behalf of Dimension Films; Schuyler Moore of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan and Jere Hausfater on behalf of AR Films; Kenneth Keller and Garth Rosengren of Krieg, Keller, Sloan, Reilley & Roman and John LaViolette of Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman on behalf of Stephen L’Heureux and Solopsist Films; and Mark Lichtman and Neil Meyer and Allison Binder of Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson & Binder on behalf of Miller

Terrific news. I had given up hope that there would ever be a sequel. Very excited to see what they do with this one. So excited, in fact, that I feel like popping in the first film tonight. It's been a really long time since I've watched it. It says many of the original cast is expected to return. That was a rather large cast, though, so I hope there's no scheduling issues.

I'll believe it when a trailer comes out. This is like the third time they've "officially" went into production.

And who knows, Robert might make a movie that I'll like. I swear, I haven't liked a film by him since maybe Grindhouse.

I didn't like Machete at all. Or at least, I thought Hobo with a Shotgun and Black Dynamite were much stronger movies.

It took them long enough! Good grief, I was getting tired of waiting. I hope Robert can get back as many people from the first one as he can and the fact Miller is writing new stories just for this movie excites me even more!

I forget why I didn't like Machete. I think it had to do with the last act. Some of it was good but it doesn't reach the same level of parody.





I hope the long wait doesn't hurt the success of the film.

Eh. I'm not exactly chomping at the bit, but I'll probably see it.

The novelty of the first one wore off quick for me.

I think the writer was talking about Machete 2.

"The script and details of the film’s story have been kept tightly under wraps."



Yeah. It's not like there's a graphic novel out there for everyone to read or anything...

Anyway, the first movie followed the original stories almost to the letter. I can't imagine them doing anything different here.

I am really looking forward to this. Sin City is one of my favorite comic book films. This sequel is a long time coming.

While my enthusiasm for the first movie has waned over the years, I did find myself really enjoying it on Blu-ray after buying it recently, and its still a good movie, so yeah, I am very happy with this announcement, and I hope they can improve on the first movie by adding a bit of substance as well as the style this time.

Rodriguez hasnt been his best lately, Machete was a bit dissapointing, so I hope he is back on the ball with SC2.

Same here, knowing Rodriguez he'll probably end up making Spy Kids 5: the fart in your face edition.

I loved A Dame to Kill for but Frank Miller's recent tirades against groups of people he clearly knows nothing about have made me pretty much lose any interest in anything remotely connected with him.

Plus, I also wasted about 20 minutes of my life watching some of The Spirit. I want that time back.
