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.
Some of the filmmaker’s talk, in an extended interview, turned to his plans for the upcoming El Rey network, of which we told you not long ago. But he also dished out some plot details on Machete Kills, and said that Sin City 2 will likely shoot right on the heels of his Machete sequel. Finally, there is news that a 3D re-release of From Dusk Till Dawn is headed our way. Read More »

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]

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 »
When Robert Rodriguez hit the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 on Thursday, he came with both barrels loaded. And a lot of extra ammunition. You’ve already read that he’s now going to attempt to make a Heavy Metal movie plus he offered updated on several other projects including:
- Machete Kills
- Machete Kills Again In Space (I’m not kidding.)
- Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
- Frank Frazetta’s Fire & Ice

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
How many times can you be told something is going to happen before the promise loses all meaning? With Sin City 2, that question is being put to the test. Time and time again it’s been said that the film is gearing up for production—at one point it was supposedly written and ready to shoot, then it was put on the backburner, then it was ready to go again, then it sounded like it might not happen, then it was teased yet again—and for years, it’s been all wait and no reward.
At this point, we probably shouldn’t be casting more fuel onto the fire, but for those who still haven’t given up hope on a sequel, director Robert Rodriguez has updated its status, saying he intends for it to be his follow-up to his next project, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World. Read what he had to say after the break. Read More »
The specter of Sin City 2 will hang over Robert Rodriguez until…well, until he finally makes the damn movie. I can conceive of a distant future in which Rodriguez has become a filmmaker akin to Ingmar Bergman (just for the sake of argument) but is still hit with questions about Sin City 2.
On the subject of the sequel, Rodriguez spoke to Digital Spy (via CinemaBlend) and said “We’re still working on Sin City, I want to do it so we’ll see. It’s just a matter of when…We have a script… a rewritten script that we still have to write and it’s just finding the right time slot to do it.”
So, the film is basically in the same spot it has been for some time: pending, but not really close to the starting line. For what it’s worth, Rodriguez also mentioned that he’s still in contact with Mike Allred about making a film based on Allred’s comic series Madman. That would be a great thing to see (possibly) and I’d infinitely prefer that to Sin City 2.
After the break, Kevin Smith offers Red State and Hit Somebody updates, and the Incredible Crash Test Dummies movie is, shockingly, still moving forward. Read More »
