Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
« on: May 14, 2012, 06:38:13 pm »
Well let's start tracking this. I loved Sin City and hope the sequel performs well. Production just starting. A teaser trailer already...


Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will focus on a mysterious woman named Ava and will continue the story introduced in the first installment. A few months ago, director Robert Rodriguez confirmed that stars from the first film Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson and Michael Madsen are slated to reprise their roles. Frank Miller, who wrote the popular graphic novel the films are based on, will also be taking on directorial duties for the follow up. Production on the film will begin once Rodriguez wraps his current project Machete Kills starring Danny Trejo.

I love the comic book that the movie will be based on and it's really the last great thing Frank Miller wrote. Since then, it's been pretty much garbage. I still don't think he is all that when it comes to being a Director. Just leave it to Robert Rodriguez. Too many cooks in the kitchen can dilute an otherwise good meal. Any news of Tarantino is going to direct a segment?

Mel Gibson? I dunno about that. He's got a lot of baggage. He'd fit in nicely as a  f u c k e d  up character.

Sure he died in the first Sin City (via electric chair), but that won’t stop Robert Rodriguez from resurrecting ol’ Marv.

Website DL reports that Mickey Rourke is now in negotiations to make a return trip to Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller sequel. He’ll reprise his role of Marv, the hulking tough guy with a soft spot for women.

In theaters October 4, 2013, “The film is about Dwight McCarthy planing to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy is trying to cope with Hartigan’s death.”

Michael Clarke Duncan, Angelina Jolie, Rosario Dawson, Michael Madsen and Jessica Alba are all said to be returning.

I was pretty certain that Mickey was already locked up for the sequel a long time ago, along with the rest of the cast.

Filming has started... Yaaaaaa
The actresses have joined a cast including Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's sequel, which began shooting Monday.



Quote

Jaime King and Jamie Chung have boarded Sin City 2, which began shooting on Monday in Austin.

Robert Rodriguez is directing the movie with Frank Miller, the comic book icon who created the Sin City comics that were published by Dark Horse in the 1990s. Rodriguez and Miller teamed up for the stylish 2005 hit adaptation.

Rodriguez and Miller wrote the script for the new movie, which is a combination of comics storylines and a new one written specifically by Miller for the movie. One of the storylines being adapted is A Dame to Kill For, originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava.

Many of the original castmembers are returning for the sequel, including Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. (Rourke’s character Marv was killed by electrocution in the first movie but the Dame’s story takes place before and after that film’s events.)

King played the golden-haired prostitute Goldie in the first movie and returns to play her twin sister, Wendy.

Chung is stepping into the heels worn in the first movie by Devon Aoki, the katana-wielding, roller-skating assassin Miho. The character plays a key role in helping Dwight locate the double-dealing Ava.

Rodriguez barely wrapped Machete Kills before jumping into Sin City 2 and is shooting on his soundstages in his native Austin. But while the movie may be underway, casting for major parts is still underway. Ava’s part, originally written for Angelina Jolie, is still unfilled.

And the part of Dwight remains a question mark. The character was played by Clive Owen in the first movie and sources say Owen is understood to be returning.  But the character undergoes facial surgery and appears as a new man, thus the need for a new top-flight actor to play the reconstructed character.

Also still uncast is a newly created character named Johnny, a smooth gambler.

King currently stars as the conniving and social-status seeking Lemon Breeland in CW’s Hart of Dixie. She has the horror movie Silent Night, with Malcolm McDowell and Donal Logue, in the can. She is repped by Gersh and Myman Greenspan.

Chung played Ed Helms’ fiancée in The Hangover Part II and returns for Part III. She appears in RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists, which opens Friday, and recently did a stint as Mulan in ABC’s One Upon a Time. She is repped by Gersh, 3 Arts Entertainment and Morris Yorn.

I was actually surprised that Jamie Chung wasn't in the first one since she seems to be in everything now days.

Is there a reason that Devon Aoki isn't in this one?

I am curious about what they're shooting it on, the first one had a video-y look that was a little more apparent when they were against greenscreen (and the CGI was rather soft), it's been a few years, I don't know if RR rocks RED yet but I imagine between that and the more "solid" looking CGI we get these days we'll have a more realistic feeling movie (although if they actually went OUTSIDE to some kind of city to shoot a couple angles, that would be good too...)

I was kinda hopeful the entire movie would be shot on Betamax. As for Devon Aoki, I just assumed she was in this one.

Just popped in my Sin City DVD for the first time in ages.  I still have a big issue with the CGI in the movie, you know that they're not really in the locations... especially when they're on the treadmills.  And everything in that world is sort of soft and cartoonish... none of the places really feel REAL, you know?  I really hope that in the time span between the last flick, RR had the sequel in the back of his head and so was just taking reference and plate shots every chance he got.  I know I would have been.  Maybe even go more noir style, shoot back projection style shots for when they're driving.

And I'm also really hoping that they bring people in... I like that RR does so much himself, but his films are missing something because of that.  Anyone would be eager to work on the next Sin City so you know he could bring in some brilliant talent for some stuff like Fincher-style opening titles.

And since current digital cameras get you sharper pictures and pick up more light, you could get a little more experimental and extreme in the shots.  Get more of that stylized lighting in camera on the day rather than play around with it later, you could tell when they did that.
That and the elements, remember the rain at the start making those fakey puddles?  That's gotta change.

As much as we liked the first one, it should be a proof-of-concept for what the second one should be.

Deadline has word that the in-demand actor has just signed on to play a big role in Robert Rodriguez‘s Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Apparently he’s going to be playing Johnny, a role that was meant to go to Johnny Depp at one point, and that is said to be a core character in the overlapping parts of the film’s story lines.

Don't think so. At least I can't remember if we did.
