In talking with worldwide press members today in Second Life about 300, Frank Miller said that he talked to Robert Rodriguez yesterday about Sin City 2. They hope to be prepping the sequel in the next six weeks for shooting to start in June.
Director Zack Snyder also said that he is trying to develop Watchmen with Warner Bros. as an R-rated film. He hopes that with the success of 300 it will be easier to get it going. One of the aspects they are concentrating on is the costumes, because he said “you want people to take the movie seriously.” He said, like the “Spider-Man” movie costumes, people have come to expect that kind of detail.
Miller added that he knows who he wants to play The Spirit, but he said, “If I told you, I’d have to kill myself.”
