Frank Miller is a smart chap. He knows what’s coming — when comic fanboys and geeks across the world get a load of The Spirit, they are going to (a) likely be disappointed and (b) wish that he had made Sin City 2 instead. So in a Nostradamus-like move, Miller is using the press tour for The Spirit to talk a little bit about that Sin City follow-up, telling the gents at IGN UK that it is ready to roll. All he needs now is for Robert Rodriguez’ schedule to clear.
“Sin City 2 is written,” Miller explained. “It’s mainly a matter of working out the details of the production. I’m hoping to do it with Robert Rodriguez again in the same circumstances that we did the first one, and we could be shooting as soon as April.”
He wouldn’t elaborate on the plot or a potential cast, but according to the report he was very enthusiastic about wanting to get started in the spring. Bringing a Sin City sequel to screens by the end of 2009 would be wonderful for a lot of fans, many of whom have been drooling over the idea for quite some time now. This writer is completely unaffected by this news, as Frank Miller could very well be pulling a Quentin Tarantino on us — talking up a juicy project in the distance to make us forget about the current project at hand. Then again, I’ve never been one to deny other fanboys their blind excitement over a project. That, and Sin City was a mean fuckin’ movie, man. If another one comes to fruition, I won’t complain.
Are you excited about Frank and Robert teaming up for Sin City 2?
