Any news on Sin City 2 : A Dame to Kill For ???
I've heard several rumours about the sequel; to the Sin City film. Apparently it's based on the story "A Dame to Kill For" with a couple of new stories bedded in. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything on the subject, any certain answers of the release, storyline or if it will indeed be made???

A Dame to kill for is the right story as far as know and Frank Miller is writing a totally new story for Jessica Alba's character Nancy the stripper but to speculate anything beyond that is not helpful. it wont be release in 2008 unless the scripts are finished (which they're not considering the writer's strike), Rodriguez, the director, has not really said anything about it and it seemed he was moving onto different thngs with the remake of Barbarella (which fell through). its also pointless to comment on whose to be cast considering that is just pure speculation, i've heard of angelina jolie and rachel weicz but nothing more, no ones really said if they're returning or not. Miller is directing the spirit and everyone seems to be doing there movies. at least expect it to be next year but only if it production starts to go ahead before the year is out.

The film's plot follows a multiple storyline. One is based around A Dame to Kill For which follows Dwight (Clive Owen) and his former love Ava Lord (Rachel Weisz), who betrayed him and ended their relationship for a wealthier man. Ava now returns years later claiming her marriage is abusive and insisting that Dwight help her. After she frames him for the murder of her husband, Dwight, with the help of Marv, seeks to clear his name. Dwight's storyline in this film is a prequel to The Big Fat Kill, which occurred in the first film. It explains how Dwight came to have his "new face" and his connections with the Old Town prostitutes. Dark Horse describes A Dame to Kill For: "It's one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight's thinking of all the ways he's screwed up and what he'd give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb grey hell that is his life. And he'd give anything. Just to cut loose. Just to feel the fire. One more time." Another storyline follows Nancy (Jessica Alba) as she grieves the death of Detective Hartigan, the man she had grown to love after he rescued her from That Yellow Bastard who had kidnapped and attempted to rape then kill Nancy when she was a child.
Release Date: TBA 2008 (estimated)
Distributor: The Weinstein Company
Production Company: Troublemaker Studios (Sin City, the Spy Kids series)
Cast: Mickey Rourke (Marv), Clive Owen (Dwight), Brittany Murphy (Shellie), Rosario Dawson (Gail), Jaime King (Goldie/Wendy), Michael Clarke Duncan (Manute); other cast not yet announced.
Cast Notes: (11/22/06) A popular rumor as to who the titular 'dame' might be is that Angelina Jolie is being courted to take on the role.
Director: Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez (co-directors of the first Sin City)
Screenwriter: Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez
Screenwriter Notes: (8/4/05) There was no credit for screenwriting on the first "Sin City." Rodriguez felt that since his script simply transcribed Miller's book, there was no need for a screen credit. Presumably, he'll do the same on the second film.
Based Upon: Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, "A Dame to Kill For," the second "Sin City" book. Presumably, the film will be directly adapted from the book like the first movie. It's not yet known if there will be multiple stories in the flick as in the original.
Premise: For "A Dame to Kill For" -
It's one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight's thinking of all the ways he's screwed up and what he'd give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb gray hell that is his life. And he'd give anything. Just to cut loose. Just to feel the fire. One more time. And then Ava calls. (from the Dark Horse comic)
Premise Notes: (8/4/05) "A Dame to Kill For" takes place before the events of the first film chronologically. That's why several of the characters that were killed in the original movie are returning for the second.
Genre: Action, Drama, Comic Book, Sequel
Filming: (11/22/06) Filming may start in the spring of 2007 at sets in Austin, TX. Like the previous 'Sin City,' it will be shot entirely on green screen stages with minimal sets.

The production of this film seems like a big mystery.It seems like it's the least of Rodriguez' worries what with his new films being made.Hasn't this movie been pushed back tons of times?Supposedly it's going to be released in 2010!
