Very few men could step into the very big shoes left by late actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who passed away earlier this year. In 2005, the actor best know for his work in The Green Mile and Armageddon played a bad-ass bodyguard in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s film Sin City, which is currently shooting a sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Duncan’s role, Manute, plays a part in the film and unfortunately, his passing has forced the director to recast. Their choice is a great one, though: the former TV President of the United States, insurance spokesman and power-hitting Indian, Dennis Haysbert. Read the official statement and what the role will entail after the jump. Read More »

As soon as Robert Rodriguez finished filming Machete Kills, he jumped right into his next movie. That movie is Sin City 2, aka Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which began filming on Monday with two actresses familiar with the genre. Jaime King is returning for the sequel, playing the sister of her character from the first movie, and Jamie Chung is playing the role Devon Aoki had in the 2005 original.

Rodriguez is co-directing once again with Frank Miller, who wrote the original comics and, once again, the movie will consist of multiple stories. However, unlike the original movie, one of the stories in the sequel is brand new and written specifically for the film. A Dame to Kill For is scheduled for release October 4, 2013.

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been talking about doing a Sin City sequel for seven years now. It seems like every interview they have given since the release of the 2005 graphic novel adaptation, they’ve teased that the project is almost ready to go. They’ve been doing this so long now that most film journalists have stopped reporting on the quotes. Well, it now appears that production is gearing up for the film as Dimension Films has sent out an official press release to announce such.

The sequel will be titled Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, and will be again directed by both Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. Story details are being kept under wraps, but Miller promises that they are “going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.“ They’re also claiming that casting will begin next week, “with many of the original cast expected to return.” Shooting will begin this Summer. And with Rodriguez at the helm, we’d have to assume the second helping will be shot and distributed in 3D. Read the full press release after the jump.
