Yep, "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is the absurd mouthful that is the new title for "Sin City: Dame To Kill For," reminding you just who exactly penned the pulpy tales that will continue in Robert Rodriguez's sequel. Originally slated to drop last year, the ever-busy director pushed things back to give himself more breathing room to get it done, but with the movie coming this summer we're about to see a lot more.
So from the pages of Empire comes the first looks at Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in the film. They show that yes, this will still be sex and violence fuelled fare, which is exactly what it's supposed to be. And while some of the film is based on Miller's work, it will also include some new stories too, with Nancy going from pole dancer to ass kicker.
“You see a little girl in that first film. By the end of this, she’s the avenging angel,” Rodriguez says, with Miller adding: “She is sick of being treated—as she puts it—‘as a piece of ass.’”
Co-starring Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Juno Temple, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, and Stacy Keach, the 'Dame' is coming on August 22nd.
