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.

Robert Rodriguez may originally be from San Antonio, but Austin, TX has been his private and professional home for many years. So an appearance at the SXSW festival is to be expected, and Rodriguez did indeed show up at the film and interactive portion of the fest to talk about his upcoming projects.

Can we assume that Robert Downey Jr. has become a fan of Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce? Months before Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens, Pearce has been hired to write the provisional Sherlock Holmes 3 for Warner Bros. (Just as the studio hired A Game of Shadows screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney to get to work on the script before Sherlock Holmes opened.) And since Pearce is writing the third Iron Man film, something Downey is likely quite involved in given his admitted disappointment with the second movie, it isn’t difficult to assume that Downey had a hand in suggesting him to pen Sherlock 3. No plot has been revealed for the potential third film at this time. [Deadline]
