Producer Stephen L’Heureux confirmed to Mania that the long-awaited sequel Sin City 2 will be going into production in the second half of 2010. Unlike the original, which was based on the graphic novels, the sequel will be based on an original script by Miller, who will return to co-direct with Robert Rodriguez.
L’Heureux also revealed that Miller is working on a screenplay based on his 1990’s comic series Hard Boiled, which he’s attached to direct:
“We’re still developing it. We got the project in turnaround from Warner Bros and Frank. It’s such a pleasure to work with someone like Frank Miller. He’s so smart and passionate about story at all levels from 1940s noir pulp to modern film,” L’Heureux said.
“With ‘Sin City‘ just on the horizon I don’t think we’d be able to do it with Frank right away. As simple as ‘Sin City‘ seems, it’s a very complex scheduling with all these actors and it’s a very demanding shoot to be on a sound stage all day long,” L’Heureux told us. “We have to space it for Frank. There’s also talk, of course, of ‘Sin City 3‘.”
