Sin City 2 to start filming

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.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
