Frank Miller recently sat down with Superhero Hype! to discuss his upcoming film The Spirit, but the director also chatted about other projects that he has in the works, including sequels to Sin City and 300.
Miller confirmed to the site that he has “written a story that’s not a prequel” to 300:
“It’s definitely a further story in the Greco-Persian Wars, and it involves some of the same characters but I’m not sure exactly how far along it’ll get and again, until it’s on a marquee, I don’t believe in it.”
Miller also spoke about plans to get moving on a second Sin City and responded to last week’s news that Mickey Rourke was hesitant on returning for the sequel due to long hours in the make-up chair: “He has a pretty big role. I hope Mickey plays it.” Miller also confirmed that although he directed The Spirit solo, he would prefer to once again team-up with Robert Rodriquez for the Sin City sequel:
“I hope to work with Robert. We’re talking it over and trying to work out the mechanics of actually getting it made. It’s always tricky with movies. I believe that a movie’s going to come out as soon as I see its name on a marquee.”
And finally, Miller hinted that he may publish a Sin City or 300 comic or graphic novel ahead of the release of either film.
