I think I'm the most envious of Chris Nolan because he got to do The Dark Knight — and that's the one I begged to do as my second Batman film. I wanted to do a whole other thing, because we had kind of re-invented franchise with Val as Batman and it was a very young, sexy, and much less expensive movie. We brought in Robin and I wanted to make The Dark Knight desperately, but the studio didn't want that and it's their money and they're my bosses.

Sin City 2 writer William Monahan spoke at length to Collider about his Sin City 2 script, which is almost done. Here is just some of what he had to say. It's a must read:

My job is essentially to be Frank Miller. I have to, as an improvisational actor, be Frank Miller while simultaneously being Monahan. It's pretty cool because as a screenwriter, as a dramatist, what you're doing all the time is inhabiting characters and improvising. In writing drama, there's a great component of being an improvisational actor and there's also a component of being an improvisational writer who can inhabit another personality and deliver something in the correct tone. Frank Miller is emphatically Frank Miller. That's what I wanted to see in Sin City and that's what I want to see in Sin City 2.
