Premiere.com has posted some interesting comments from Michael Madsen. The actor says that the bombing of Grindhouse might have halted progress on Sin City 2. Both Grindhouse and Sin City were co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and released by Dimension Films:
Some of the other things that you have got coming up include Sin City 2.
They haven’t shot it yet. I don’t know if they ever will. I am not sure [about] the franchise. I think the Grindhouse thing didn’t kind of work out…
…as well as they had hoped. Certainly not in the States.
I don’t know what effect that is going to have on making Sin City 2. Sin City was Mickey [Rourke]’s film. Mickey is f**king incredible in that f**king movie. He is the movie. And I am happy for Mickey. Mickey is the real deal. Mickey is Mickey. And you can’t f**k with that. And he did a tremendous job in that thing. The only reason I did it was because Robert Rodriguez said that if I took that little part I would get a bigger role in the sequel, that Bob would have more to do in the sequel. So I said: “Okay, fine.” I am sitting on an apple box [in front of a green screen] and then when you see the movie, you’re in a car. I don’t understand it. I don’t know how to do that. I don’t get it.
