***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

ROBERT RODRIGUEZ AND FRANK MILLER TO BEGIN PRODUCTION ON THEIR MUCH ANTICIPATED SEQUEL TO 2005‘S SIN CITY ENTITLED “FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR”

Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions and Alexander Rodnyansky’s AR Films partner with Dimension Films on historic sequel

AUSTIN, TX (12 April 2012) — Filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, along with producer Alexander Rodnyansky, have announced that production will commence on the highly anticipated sequel to 2005’s Sin City, entitled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film will be produced by AR Films and Quick Draw Productions, financed through AR Films U.S and released domestically by Dimension Films.

“The first question I am always asked is “When will you make another Sin City? ,” said Rodriquez. “I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait.”

Sin City creator, screenwriter and co-director Frank Miller said, “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.“

The script and details of the film’s story have been kept tightly under wraps. Casting will begin next week, with many of the original cast expected to return. The film, a Quick Draw Production, will be produced by Rodriguez and producing partners Aaron Kaufman and Iliana Nikolic; and by Alexander Rodnyansky and Sergei Bespalov and Stephen L’Hereux. Miller, The Weinstein Company’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein and Miramax’s Adam Fields will act as executive producers. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Frank Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The film is expected to begin production this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

Alexander Rodnyansky said, “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Robert Rodriguez and Quick Draw Productions. It is a rare opportunity to produce and finance a film with the high profile and enormous fan base of the Sin City franchise. AR FIlms will be managing worldwide sales of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, as well as Robert’s Machete Kills at the Cannes Film Festival in May.”

The original Sin City was brought to the screen by Rodriguez and Miller and released by Dimension in 2005, and proved to be a landmark step forward in filmmaking, breaking ground with immersive green screen to create its iconic stylish look. The first film, released on April 1, 2005, grossed over $160 million (US) worldwide and is a consistently strong home video and television performer.

“Audiences have been clamoring for Sin City 2 with Robert and Frank for a long time and trust me, it will be worth the wait,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “This will be my 11th collaboration with Robert in 16 years and he’s become a great friend. I look forward to continuing our long lasting relationship and partnering on more projects in the future.”

I was worried they were going to wait until Angelina Jolie was in her 50's to start production on this.

The story is under wraps? The last film was a shot for shot recreation of the book! Can't imagine this'll be anything else.

It's not exactly a Marv-centric movie, he could probably stand it for the short time that he's in there.

Two of the stories in the movie are not going to be adaptations of the books, they're new material, so you or I don;;t know how much Marv there is going to be yet.

Looks good, looks like more of the same. Plus more Alba gyrating. Ten years later and that hasn't lost it's appeal.

Besides Daredevil, A Dame to Kill For is my favorite thing Miller's ever done, so I'm excited for this even though it looks like they've taken some liberties. Haysbert is a perfect replacement for Michael Clarke Duncan, and I kind of wish it was him all along. I like Brolin better than Owen so that works too.

Also, Eva Green.

Not sure the promotion really broke through, Guardians has cast a big shadow in the last few months advertising-wise. I'm planning to check it out tomorrow, hopefully at least it'll match up to the first artistically.

I found it bizarre when multiple sources thought that Jessica Alba was the Dame to kill for. I mean, she is but in the story it's all Eva Green. Perhaps they should have made that clearer.

I think the theory that making audience wait 9 years for a sequel is valid as well. A lot of people that weren't in the core fan base but saw the first one probably lost a lot of interest between then and now.

I haven't been able to turn on my computer or TV (or leave the house) for weeks without being bombarded by ads for TMNT and Guardians, but I didn't see a single ad for this anywhere.

I've seen a few ads, but none of them made me want to actually see it. The reviews have not been kind, either.

$6.5M on opening weekend isn't just bad. That's humiliating. I'm fairly certain Miller's directed his last movie.
