Sin City 2 going elsewhere? April 23rd, 2009

Sin City 2 movie rights are today being shopped around Hol­ly­wood, report THR. It appears that Dimen­sion Films (The Wein­stein Co./Dimension) may have even­tu­ally lost rights to the prop­erty; although they do still main­tain they have the rights on the sequel. This is coun­tered by pro­duc­ers that have ‘shopped for’ the rights to Sin City through rep­re­sen­ta­tives — they are actively seek­ing a new space to set up the Sin City sequel.

This may have come through inac­tiv­ity and ‘lan­guished development’.

The The Wein­stein Co. attor­ney maintains:

“TWC’s rights to pro­duce sequels to ‘Sin City’ remain intact as they always have been.”

Angelina Jolie in Sin City 2? April 12th, 2009

Accord­ing to Clint Mor­ris and a high pro­file pro­ducer friend, Angelina Jolie is in seri­ous talks about appear­ing in the Sin City sequel. Jolie orig­i­nally spoke about a pos­si­ble involve­ment in Sin City 2 back in 2006 (see our cast­ing rumors from 08). How­ever it now seems that pro­duc­tion has stepped up a level and the film­mak­ers are actively look­ing for Jolie to offi­cially com­mit to the project.

Rumor has it that Angelina Jolie is inline to play Ava Lord, the female star of ‘A Dame to Kill For’.

The rights for the movie have recently come into ques­tion, and maybe this lit­tle palaver has sprung the Wein­steins into action to ensure they don’t.

Mickey Rourke not keen on sequel December 8th, 2008

This one throws a bit of a span­ner in the works, as recently as last week Mickey Rourke sug­gested he would be on board for the Sin City sequel, based on “A Dame to Kill for”. How­ever, at The Wrestler press jun­ket his words were not so keen,

“No, I’m not inter­ested in that right now. That’s not a real­ity right now. It’s piss­ing in the wind,” Rourke admit­ted. “There’s dif­fer­ent fac­tions going dif­fer­ent direc­tions there. I don’t know. That’s three hours of make up and I’m claus­tro­pho­bic, so I’m going to have to work some­thing out.”
