Words are, the rights to the follow-up feature film of Frank Miller's 'Sin City' has slipped off from the hands of The Weinstein Company.
An interesting scoop suggesting that "Sin City 2" is no longer a Weinstein Company project has broken to the surface. Coming up with the report is IESB which claimed that the production company has lost the rights to the sequel of Frank Miller's "Sin City".
While noting that details on the matter remain sketchy, the site made note that the follow-up movie will now be financed by a private equity group with announcement coming out soon. Universal Pictures have been rumored to be potential contender to be this film's distributor, though no words have been shared of it.
IESB further pointed out that Robert Rodriguez's Trouble Maker studios are still committed to produce "Sin City 2". With that said, it means Rodriguez may still come aboard as co-director, co-producer and co-writer for the action drama project.
Expected to be finished for 2010 release,"Sin City 2" is said to be adapted from Frank Miller's "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. Clive Owen will return to play McCarthy. He will be joined by Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke and Michael Clarke Duncan.
