Rumours have been circulating ever since the original was released but it now seems more official than ever, Sin City 2 is on the way!
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have both announced that filming is scheduled to begin this summer (northern hemisphere summer that is) and that the film title is ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’. Readers of the comics will instantly recognise this as the title of the second collected book which follows the character of Dwight (amongst others) whom was portrayed by Clive Owen in the first film. First published in 1993 the books received an Eisner Award for best limited series in 1995.
Casting is reportedly due to commence within a week, given the story includes several characters from the first film hopefully we’ll see some returning cast members.
If filming does take place over the next few months we’ll hopefully see the theatrical release before the end of 2013.
