We have been hearing Robert Rodriguez promise he would be bringing us another Sin City for years now. So when the director recently announced that he was definitely getting to work on it soon, fans didn't hold their breath. But then we started to hear a bit more about it, cast members were quoted as saying they were set to return, and we even got a teaser poster of sorts (see below). And now we have a release date..

A Tweet from Variety's Jeff Sneider reveals..

BREAKING: DIMENSION to release FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR nationwide on October 4, 2013.




UPDATE: Some more details have been revealed via press release. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are co-directing the movie, which is scheduled to shoot this summer in Austin Texas, home of Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios. And in addition to Mickey Rourke (who we already knew was reprising the role of Marv), Jessica Alba will be back as Nancy Callaghan. Also, the movie will be in 3D..

any news or rumors on who will play Ava in this? i really hope it isn't Angelina Jolie. if this had gotten made 5 years ago, that would have been great, but now with the odd anorexic look where she is a bag of bones and a seemingly too large for her body head, she isn't looking too sexy anymore.

Well that took long enough. Why is there a web line connected to the lips haha?

I can't update the article with the press release for now, but I made a mistake at the very end there..it won't be SHOT in 3D, just a conversion.

Hope it's as good as/ better than Sin City so they can green light a shot at Hell and Back. Loved the first one tho.

Hoping that Clive Owen will be back to play Dwight! But the biggest question is...

[SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't read the 2nd sin city book don't go on and finish reading this comment.]

Who will play Dwight before he gets his "new face"?

I hope I didn't spoil anything :|
