Robert Rodriguez Talks Sin City 2 Robert Rodriguez Talks Sin City 2

Robert Rodriguez remains as busy a filmmaker as ever, but it’s been a while since he gave an update on Sin City 2, the followup to his 2005 cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s grisly graphic novel Noir series.

Rodriguez discussed the Sin City sequel with fans during a Facebook livechat this past weekend, and revealed that it could be the next project on his to-do list, after Spy Kids 4.

Sin City 2 – the script for which Rodriguez says he and Miller are working on – will likely not be a traditional sequel to its predecessor since, well, a lot of the central characters died in that film. Miller’s original Sin City comic books were not released in chronological order and later volumes included stories that jumped back in time as to include certain individuals (for example, Marv) whose final destination had previously been revealed.

One name that Rodriguez mentioned during the FB chat as a possible returning player for Sin City 2 was that of Hartigan, Bruce Willis’ cop-with-a-bum-ticker. There were rumblings from Miller quite awhile back about how he had written a story for Sin City 2 that involved Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) dealing with the aftermath of the events that occurred in “That Yellow Bastard” – the Hartigan storyline in the Sin City movie – but, if Willis does return, that might not be the case after all.

Rodriguez did not rule out the possibility that the “Hell & Back” storyline from Miller’s original books could show up in Sin City 2. Johnny Depp was long rumored as the top choice to play the protagonist of that piece (an artist/war hero/short order cook named Wallace), but there would be little chance of that happening if work on the Sin City sequel begins next year.

Filming has begun on the fourth Spy Kids – which, like all of Rodriguez’s productions, is being shot at his Troublemaker Studios base in Austin, Texas – and Rodriguez may not direct the Deadpool movie because of his Spy Kids 4 commitment. Does that mean he has room in his schedule for Sin City 2 now? Miller might be hoping so: a new Sin City movie might even wash away memories of the travesty that was Miller’s cinematic¬†adaptation of The Spirit. Maybe.

We will keep you posted on the status of Sin City 2 as more news comes our way.

  1. When is spy kids out? I enjoyed the first 2 when i was little,now not so much i hope they are more darker…

    • just keep it R, and for gods sake cool just like the first. and none of this co-directing stuff!!

      • Are you serious Ants? An R rated spy kids is that possible?!!

        • um i was talking about the main topic of this thread..i’ll let you figure that out :)

          • Well you replied on my comment…so i was guessing you were talking about spy kids obviously..

            • i accidently hit the reply button pal.

              • Oh ok then. No problem :D

                • but i would’nt be upset over an R rated Spy Kids.

                  • Yeah i would LOVE it to be R too,but i dont think its possible,i mean a small percentage of adults would see a movie called spy kids. I mean a title like that they take their kids,but not if its R lol…Id see it though i fit in the percentage :D

                    I bet You anyhting that the title is gonna be stupid. Spy Kids 4: The mississippi river

      • the only reason Miller is put as co-directer is because he pretty much did direct the movie with his drawings. And if you watch the special features he does have a say on set. He knows his own universe.

  2. Sin City 2 on the back burner to Spy Kids 4!? Not that I liked the first Sin City, but that’s a pretty enormous slap in the face to a very large fan base. Not like Rodriguez is above that anyway. *cough*Predators*cough*

  3. Spy Kids :x Why RR Why ??????????? Ain’t 3 parts enough????

    • The 3rd doesnt count LOL

  4. Ya c’mon, he’d rather make another Spy Kids film then Sin City2? or even Deadpool? Why must we wait even longer for sin city, its already been 5 years. i officialy hate all things associated with spies and kids!

    • lol calm down!

  5. yeah cut out spy kids 4…I mean surly there not still kids now,
    plus those films utterly suck! children spies BLAH

  6. he makes those movies for his kids i gues? but arnt his kids getting to old for that stuff how old are they now? i bet they would be much more interested in a DEADPOOL film damn i want a deadpool film wtf is up with hollywood and making decent comic book adaptations its like theres only a good one eveery couple of years and every now and then we get somthing good but everything eles is crap. i just hope they dont screw up deadpool like they did ironman 2. like iron man doing what iron man does in 3 scenes then the rest of the movie is like a vince vaughn john favreau comedy

  7. which i know deadpool is SUPPOSED to be comedic but hes at his best when hes in a fight refrencing to BEA ARTHUR!

  8. Ugh I hate Spy Kids it’s so awful, but looking forward to Sin City 2.

    • you and me both Daniel

  9. I’m done with RR films. He’s not evolving.

  10. They should do A Dame to Kill For next, I think Clive Owen and Mickey Rourke would work amazingly well together.

  11. beastly. i loved the original!

  12. I REALLY hopes this comes out. I’m getting nervous though that it’s starting to go into “Development Hell”
