Yesterday we told you that Michael Madsen believes that Sin City 2 might not going to happen due to the box office failure of Grindhouse. We wondered how one of the film’s main stars was so unsure about the production, when the movie was scheduled to start shooting in June. Now we have word (via RT) that Sin City 2 is officially DELAYED.
“Sin City 2 is still likely to happen, just not right away,” he said. “The script is written and Robert [Rodriguez] and I are raring to go, but it looks like I’m going to be doing ‘The Spirit‘ first and Robert’s going to be doing ‘Barbarella‘ first.”
So there you have it, Sin City is officially DELAYED but not DEAD, at least according to Miller. However, I wonder what kind of business The Spirit will pull at the box office. It doesn’t seem to be something that will attract huge blockbuster crowds, call me doubtful. And if The Spirit bombs, would there still be a Sin City 2? I think not. And does anyone really believe that Barbarella will be a huge hit? Either way, it looks like we won’t see Sin City 2 until 2009, if ever.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
