Director Robert Rodriguez finally announced last month that production is set to begin this summer on the long-in-development sequel to his and Frank Miller’s cult 2005 comic book adaptation Sin City, and just to confirm that Sin City 2 – a.k.a. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For – actually is happening (at long last), a first teaser poster has now made its way online via StarkIndustries:
As with its predecessor, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be directed by both Rodriguez and Sin City creator Miller, with Miller and Academy Award-winner William Monahan (The Departed) contributing to the screenplay for the eagerly-awaited sequel. So far only Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) and Rosario Dawson (Clerks II) are confirmed as reprising their roles as Marv and Gail, although Rodriguez has promised that many of the original cast are likely to return.
In addition to Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Rodriguez is also busy prepping Machete Kills with Danny Trejo, and financiers AR Films are looking to sell international distribution rights for both projects at the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off this week.
