The comic book writer/filmmaker reveals that the sequel of his 2005 noir-like style film is on the horizon.
While Frank Miller was in Rome to introduce Will Eisner's comic strip adaptation "The Spirit", he got the chance to speak out a little bit about his other project "Sin City 2". Though refusing to spoil any details on the "Sin City" sequel, he revealed to BadTaste.it that the project is close to be started.
In a Q&A session, he said, "I cant' talk about my projects, because I don't believe a movie is real until I see the title on the screen. There are many things that can go wrong." He then added, "But I can tell you that I'm very close to begin Sin City 2 with Robert Rodriguez. We have to arrange a few things and we'll be back in action."
The second film adapted from Miller's graphic novel of the same title, "Sin City 2", reportedly will based on the second Sin City story entitled "A Dame to Kill For". It offers the early story of Dwight McCarthy when Ava Lord, his former lover, returns to his life with a dark intention forcing him to face all sorts of problems. In the first movie, McCarthy character was depicted by Clive Owen who will return to reprise the role.
Beside Owen, other stars coming back include Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rosario Dawson. The sequel co-directed, co-produced and co-written by Miller and Rodriguez is expected to be finished for 2010 release.
