Robert Rodriguez Says 'Sin City' Sequel is Next After 'Spy Kids 4'
We've heard a few small updates regarding a sequel to the adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel Sin City for a little while now, and one even had mentioned a possible production start towards the end of this year. But with Robert Rodriguez gearing up for another Spy Kids (a franchise reboot), that is definitely not going to happen. However, The Playlist discovered that the director recently mentioned the sequel in a Facebook live chat yesterday and said that the anticipated sequel is planned as his next film following Spy Kids: All the Time in the World. However, he's careful to clarify that it's not a guarantee just yet, as always,
Rodriguez said: "Frank Miller and I are working on it. It's slated to be the next one, but if the script is not ready, then we'll have to move to the next one." So it sounds like it's a distinct possibility but only if all the right pieces fall into place. Really it seems like this is just the same vague updates we hear on all anticipated projects, so not much has changed. If Sin City 2 doesn't take off, Rodriguez has been working on Nerveracker for awhile (the filmmaker stressed the lack of a plural in the title during the chat) and also recently acquired the rights to a remake of Fire and Ice, so he's got some options. There's even the potential (no matter how unlikely) of the filmmaker directing Deadpool. Of course a return to the stylistic world of Sin City would be fantastic, so I hope it happens sooner than later. How badly do you want Sin City 2?
