Seems like every director is tweeting information regarding their movies. Robert Rodriguez sent followers a couple of photos over the weekend, that shows Josh Brolin on set, and how he might look when all the magic goes on to remove the greenscreen and replace it with Frank Miller’s world.
Casting news about Sin City 2 has been trickling in from time to time and we have two more additions to add to the list. The jump has the new actresses just added and a run down of everyone we know so far.
Dimension Films announced today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (LOOPER, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) is joining the all-star cast as one of the lead characters in the highly anticipated SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. The film is the follow up to co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s 2005 visually groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY. Other major casting announcements will continue to follow.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are returning to the director’s chair for Sin City 2, the follow up to the hit flick from 2005, and with shooting scheduled to begin on Monday, we’re learning about the actors joining the movie. The latest additions come in the form of two Jamies – Jamie King and Jamie Chung.

This week’s Major Spoilers Podcast showcased the Major Spoilers crew’s thoughts on Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale’s ‘Daredevil: Yellow,’ a discussion which kept referencing Frank Miller’s epic run on the title at the dawn of the 80′s. As the only one of the crew who read comic books circa ’82 (the other MSP hosts being busy as either an athlete or a gleam in a couple of young mens’ respective eyes) I thought it was high time to take a trip back to the Bronze Age and check out one of the darkest chapters in DD’s about-to-get-much-darker superheroic career.
I didn’t “get” how powerful comics could be until I read The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller way back in the mid-80s. It is a massive story that seems almost impossible to adapt to a movie, but Warner Home Video is planning to do it with a two part movie coming later this year.
Dimension Films announced that Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has a release date set for 2013.
Heritage Auctions continues to tantalize comic book fans with fantastic art offerings this month. First it was Calvin and Hobbes, and now we learn that the auction site has nabbed the original cover artwork for The Absolute Dark Knight collection, and the other is the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns 10th anniversary edition.
At the Legendary Comics panel at the New York Comic Con, Frank Miller confirmed that new Sin City stories were on the way. Miller also confirmed that he has “every intention of doing them with Dark Horse.”
With a new movie supposedly in production, and knowing that Dark Horse couldn’t keep Sin City trades on the shelf during the first movie’s release, I expect both Miller and Dark Horse are busy figuring out ways to make maximum dollars on this still very hot property.
Warner Home Entertainment sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the upcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One.
The word from Robert Rodriguez during the San Diego Comic Con was that Sin City 2 was in the works. Today, we learn that William Monahan, the Oscar winning screenwriter for The Departed, has been hired to work on the script to bring it closer to production.
