Jaime King Explains Sin City 2's Development Troubles
With Frank Miller's The Spirit a certified flop, I'm starting to think Sin City 2 will never see the light of day, despite Miller saying that it's ready to shoot in April. However, we'll leave it to a beautiful actress like Jaime King (seen above with Frank) to tell us all about the problems that the sequel had in development. Back in the original Sin City, King played the luscious twin sisters Goldie and Wendy that Marv fooled around with. Not only did she show up in The Spirit, but she's also in My Bloody Valentine 3-D, which is how Collider caught up with her yesterday to talk all about Sin City 2's behind-the-scenes troubles.
The good news is that King confirms that Frank just finished the script (as was reported in December) and that she confidently does answers "yes" when asked if it will ever eventually get made. For those who love to hear more about what has been going on behind-the-scenes on Sin City 2, here's her rundown:
"I think when Sin City came out it was such a big hit for [The Weinstein Company] but the studio is frustrating… sometimes studios are awesome because they have a great vision for something, but then they want to do weird things with the second one. Robert [Rodriguez] didn't want to go down that route, so we've just be waiting till somebody knocked some sense into them, where we can do it the way we want to do it."
"None of the filmmakers or the actors were willing to sacrifice doing it any other way other than what we wanted to do it. I'm hoping we'll do it sometime this year. But you know how movies are… I remember I was with Robert and he said we're going in two months. I was like okay, we'll have to work out everybody's schedule. But then it got pushed. So you never really know with movies. It happens when it happens."
I guess the reason why we keep bringing up Sin City 2 and running tidbits of news like this is because it's a sequel we're anxious as hell to see! Especially after The Spirit, I'd much rather have Frank Miller going back to his "roots" with projects like this rather than other solo gigs like Buck Rogers. Speaking of Miller's involvement, King also did confirm that Miller's script uses existing material (from his comics) as well as new ideas written especially for this sequel. We can only hope that this gets the greenlight soon. That is, as long as The Weinstein Company hasn't completely given up on the idea of ever making another Sin City!
