While talking about Sin City at the Cannes Film Festival last week, co-writer and co-director Robert Rodriguez confirmed what storyline you can expect for the sequel. BBC reports:
Rodriguez, who wore his trademark cowboy hat, said he was pleased to be in Cannes, the “home” of film noir.
He added work had already started on a sequel to Sin City, and would feature many of the same characters.
He added that the next film would be based on Miller’s book, A Dame to Kill For.
Dark Horse describes “A Dame to Kill For” as follows:
It’s one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight’s thinking of all they 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.
