‘Sin City’ sequel gets in gear

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' to begin production this summer

Robert Rodriguez is moving forward with Dimension’s sequel to “Sin City,” with production expected to start this summer.

Rodriguez will direct the pic, titled “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” from a script written by Frank Miller and William Monahan. Filmmakers based the original “Sin City” pic on Miller’s graphic novel. Casting ramps up next week, though many of the original players are expected to return.

AR Films and Quick Draw Productions will produce the project with A.R. Films U.S. financing. Rodriguez and producing partners Aaron Kaufman and Iliana Nikolic will produce along with Alexander Rodnyansky, Sergei Bespalov and Stephen L’Hereux.

The Weinstein Company’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein and Miramax’s Adam Fields will act as executive producers.

Sequel has been in the works ever since the original pic grossed more than $160 million worldwide in 2005.

“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.”

Story details are being kept under wraps.

Loeb & Loeb and WME negotiated the deal on behalf of Rodriguez; David Glasser and Andrew Kramer on behalf of Dimension Films; Stroock & Stroock & Lavan and Jere Hausfater on behalf of AR Films; Krieg, Keller, Sloan, Reilley & Roman and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman on behalf of Stephen L’Heureux and Solopsist Films; and Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson & Binder on behalf of Miller.
