Robert Rodriguez Says Sin City 2 Financing Is Complete But the Script is Not
While promoting his new Spy Kids movie, the director gives an update on the status of Sin City 2 and Machete 2.
RR: Sin City 2 is going good, we’re just finishing the script for that, we already got the money. We have everything we need so we can just start shooting as soon as we get the pages. And it’s the same thing for Machete 2. We’ve already got the budget, just waiting for the script. As soon as we’re finished writing we get to start the shoot.
Earlier this month Robert informed the audience at Comic-Con that the sequel could start filming as early as the end of this year. This latest statement from Robert validates that exciting possibility. He also said that Sin City 2 would feature three stories from Frank Miller. He announced two of the stories, "A Dame to Kill For," the other is called "The Long Bad Night," which is an original story. The third story remains a secret for now, but it also will be an original story.
I'm glad we'll have a few original stories from the great Frank Miller, but lets focus on "A Dame to Kill For." If you are a fan of the Sin City graphic novels then you'll be familiar with this tale. It was the second story in the Sin City series. Might I add one of Miller's best pieces. If you aren't familiar with the comic series, but you like the movie then your in for a treat. The story has many of the characters from the first film. The Clive Owen character of Dwight is the main protagonist, but you'll also see: Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Manute (Michael Clarke Duncan) and Miho (Devon Aoki).
Plot - "A Dame to Kill For" follows Dwight who was played by Clive Owen in the movie. He is a lonely guy trying to make it from day to day without losing it. He has a history of snap violent behaviour as most people are in Sin City.
Dwight is trying to make the best out of his cards till an old love interest walks in. Eva, A man eating calculating woman who married into wealth and still wants more.
Eva talks to Dwight and asks for help telling him of the horrors she has lived with while living with her husband and Manute who was played by Michael Clarke Duncan in the movie. - superrobotmayhem.com
I wonder if Clive Owen and Michael Clarke Duncan will reprise their roles for the sequel. I hope so!
