We recently took part in a Q&A session for Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn” for the El Rey Network, but that doesn’t mean he was able to get away without dishing a bit on the upcoming flick Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
“I always forget that it’s almost 10 years since the last Sin City,” says Rodriguez about revisiting that world. “It still feels so fresh in my mind… I guess since we were always kind of working on it, it didn’t feel like that much time had passed.”
“I always knew I was going to make another Sin City. So that was a little pressure in my mind as far as how we were going to approach it. I knew we would shoot it in 3D for instance. I knew we were going to adopt certain books and come up with new story lines. It was still a real thrill to go back into that world, to shoot on green screen again and have the actors… the amazing thing was the actors. The actors were really great in the first film, but that was the first green screen movie any of them had done. It was really new back then. Nobody was really shooting green screen movies at all. That was one of the first ones, and they still did a fantastic job. But this time they’ve come back now knowing what the result was from the first film… knowing what it was all about. Everybody just gave even better, more stellar performances. So it was really cool to see that difference from the first film to the second film.”
Following the groundbreaking film that grossed $160 million worldwide, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For reunites Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for the next chapter in this trailblazing series. Weaving together stunning visuals with an uncompromising, hard-boiled plot, the film promises more lurid tales from the various residents of Basin City.
With a star-studded cast that includes the legendary Bruce Willis (Pulp Fiction), Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (Milk), Jessica Alba (Spy Kids 4), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For ensures an experience like no other!
The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on August 22nd, 2014.
Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning “Sin City” graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the follow-up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY.
