'I'm hearing it might be next year,' teases Clive Owen, the actor who plays Dwight McCarthy, when asked about whether the sequel to 'Sin City' will be happening in the future.
There is a chance that "Sin City 2" will kick off its production in 2010. The possibility has been thrown in by the star of "Sin City", Clive Owen, himself when MTV caught up with him at this year's Toronto International Film Festival while promoting his new film "The Boys Are Back".
Asked whether a sequel is indeed in the horizon, the 44-year-old quickly responded, "I'm hearing it might be next year," before adding, "I heard that from a very good source...recently." Pressed further from whom he heard the news, the leading man of "The International" coyly suggested that he may hear it from either Frank Miller or Robert Rodriguez.
The story of "Sin City 2" may likely come from Frank Miller's "A Dame to Kill For", which has been long rumored to be adapted into big screen. The novel itself tells an earlier story of Dwight McCarthy that is portrayed by Clive Owen. Director Robert Rodriguez previously stated that the sequel would blend old "Sin City" element with new story lines by Miller.
Rodriguez and Miller will team up to direct the movie. Some of the original cast who will reprise their roles include Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke and Michael Clarke Duncan. The release date is also still to be determined, but it is believed to take place in 2010.
