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?

I remember my film professor absolutely hated this film when we discussed it in class, but to me, it's easily one of my favorites so I've been eagerly awaiting a sequel.

It's one of my favorites and surely the movie I watched the most in my life. I've been waiting for this sequel long enough...

Saw the first on in the theatre. Bought the Dvd but never watched it. Don't really care about a sequel.

That would be awesome! But I'll try not to get too excited just yet. I'll wait at least until Rodriguez says Sin City 2 IS is next project! Nevertheless, cool news!

Sick of this shit. Make or don't but stop with the updates. Tell us nothing until a preview then and only then will I ponder on believing it coming out.

Is it me or has Rodriguez lost his touch? Another crappy Spy Kids movie after his mediocre production of Predators, his promised and then forgotten production of Red Sonia and his (in my opinion) very boring under written and unimaginative Machette movie... I was a big fan of Rodriguez after Desperado and From Dusk Till Dawn (even the standard teen horro flick The Faculty had its moments), then we had the outstanding Sin City which cemenetd his style and promise as a future great! However this last 3 years (since Grindhouse) have been waisted! We have been waiting a long time for Sin City 2...lets hope its worth the wait!

Sin City was (and is) great, and hopefully a sequel won't be a mediocre effort. More of The Salesman would be good for starters. But can anything top Marv's story?
