The long-rumored sequel to Sin City sounds like it’s finally coming together, six years after the first film’s opening. The last time we checked on the film, titled Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, director Robert Rodriguez said that he and his team were “just waiting for the script” to start shooting. Now they’ve brought in additional help to complete that final piece. William Monahan, the Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, has been hired to work on the script. Read more after the jump.

Robert Rodriguez keeps stoking the fire for Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For. Over the last few years we’ve heard the project discussed as possiblity that has mostly been vague. Of late, however, it seems like a more realistic possibility.
His last update on the project was that if it was going to happen, it would happen this year. Now he said the script is done, the money is in place and…well, what’s the holdup now? Read More »
Here’s another confirmation to follow the Tom Cruise/One Shot news. The 300 sequel formerly called Xerxes is now 300: Battle of Artemisia, and one of the men previously tipped as possible director, Noam Murro, has been chosen to helm the film.

The last time we heard about the 300 sequel Xerxes it wasn’t called Xerxes any longer. We didn’t have a new title then, but now we do. In order to avoid any confusion, the producers are falling back on the title of the first film and appending a subtitle. So now what was Xerxes will hit theaters as 300: Battle of Artemisia. Assuming, that is, that the film is ever shot.
The sequel needs a director at this point, but that field seems to have narrowed down to a few possible choices that include Noam Murro and Jaume Collet-Serra. Read More »
