And we couldn’t be more excited about it. Dimension Films announced today that the highly anticipated sequel FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will open nationwide on October 4, 2013. Casting is underway, with original cast members returning to work with directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, from their script co-written by Academy Award® winner William Monahan. Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba are already confirmed to return.
When asked about the then impending sequel during the IMMORTALS press day, Rourke was quick to state while he liked his role, he was reticent to return to it.
But I don’t like… I’m claustrophobic, so the three hours of make up. Because you have to keep it on for thirteen-fourteen hours a day. It’s latex and glue and that stuff that gets my eyes all red. I forget what it’s called. A chemical? It’s a nightmare. And the chair, you’ve got the teeth in. I remember I picked up some chick at a bar in Texas and I invited her to the set to have lunch at the lunch break. I couldn’t take the shit off. Fuck it. I never saw her again. I mean, she did meet me the night before but…
The script and details of the film’s story are being kept tightly under wraps. The remaining cast will be announced shortly with some huge names expected to fill the roles of Sin Ciy’s newest characters yet to be seen on the big screen.
The original SIN CITY broke new ground with its iconic stylish look and grossed over $160 million worldwide. FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR will not only bring fans back to the world that Rodriguez and Miller created, but will also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D. The film is expected to begin production this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.
