It was announced today that Robert Rodriguez's much anticipated sequel to the 2005 adaptation of the Sin City graphic novel will finally go in to production this summer and will be titled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. As a fan of the graphic novel (yes, I'm a girl that reads graphic novels) and the original film, this news makes me smile. The style was so visually stimulating and ground-breaking that it took my breath away, and Frank Miller promises that "Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first."
In the press release, Rodriguez reveals that there has been such a long time lapse in between the films because they wanted to make sure that the story was exceptional enough to please the fans. He thinks they have that now, which is nice to know that he cares about making the audience happy and not just the money. They are keeping many aspects of the script under wraps, but we do know that it will involve three stories from the A Dame to Kill For graphic novel and two others that haven't been announced. They also have not announced any specifics about casting or which actors will return for the second installment, but since the graphic novel version of A Dame to Kill For is heavy on Clive Owen's character we can only assume…and hope he will be back. I have to say, this is a sequel I can get excited about!
