IGN recently learned that Frank Miller has finished his script for Sin City 2 and plans to re-unite with Robert Rodriquez to shoo the film as early as April 2009, and now IESB has confirmed the start date with Rosario Dawson, who says she’s returning to reprise her role as Gail.
Meanwhile Mickey Rourke, who played Marv in the first film, didn’t seem all that interested in returning to the franchise when ComingSoon.net caught up with the actor at a press junket for Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, a film in which Rouke is getting rave reviews:
“No, I’m not interested in that right now. That’s not a reality right now. It’s pissing in the wind,” Rourke admitted. “There’s different factions going different directions there. I don’t know. That’s three hours of make up and I’m claustrophobic, so I’m going to have to work something out.”
With a production budget of just $40 million, Sin City debuted in April 2005 and went on to gross $158.8 million worldwide ($74.1 million domestic and $84.7 million from foreign markets). Sin City 2 will be based on the mini-series A Dame to Kill For.
