We get confirmation today from Frank Miller himself that Sin City 2 is just about ready to go. We get the scoop this morning from our friends at the movieweb:
Miller also let slip this tidbit about the future of Sin City 2:
I cant’ talk about my projects, because I don’t believe a movie is real until I see the title on the screen. There are many things that can go wrong. But I can tell you that I’m very close to begin Sin City 2 with Robert Rodriguez. We have to arrange a few things and we’ll be back in action.
I liked Sin City and would gladly welcome another outing into that world. I just think it’ s unfortunate that the The Spirit will be wedged between the two films. It looks like a Sin City rip off, and I’m still confused why Miller chose that style for the film.
I have low expectations for The Spirit; it looks very, very bad. I am wondering if Miller’s going to shoot himself in the foot with this one. If it’s bad, I can see Spirit killing buzz for Sin City 2. Perhaps people will be able to look past the stylistic similarities and understand that the franchises are different. Maybe Spirit will have no effect. Perhaps I will be dead wrong and it will be fantastic. I certainly hope so, otherwise the whole endeavor will look very foolish.
