It seems as if rumors/speculation have been kicking around forever about "Sin City 2," but this summer the long-awaited sequel received some major injections of good news. First, "The Departed" writer William Monahan was signed on to get the script across the finish line with Robert Rodriguez promising that it will go in front of cameras as soon as they have a screenplay to work with. With next spring now being eyed as a potential start date, Frank Miller has spilled a few more small details about what we can expect in the next chapter.

It seems as if rumors/speculation have been kicking around forever about "Sin City 2," but this summer the long-awaited sequel received some major injections of good news. First, "The Departed" writer William Monahan was signed on to get the script across the finish line with Robert Rodriguez promising that it will go in front of cameras as soon as they have a screenplay to work with. With next spring now being eyed as a potential start date, Frank Miller has spilled a few more small details about what we can expect in the next chapter.

As Rodriguez revealed over the summer, the film will feature three stories, with one based on Miller's "A Dame to Kill For" with two more tales, including a new one, "The Long, Bad Night." Well, MTV recently caught up with Miller who said that another short story from the "Sin City" universe will be part of the film as well, in addition to revealing that the new plotlines will allow a recurring character to help tie the first and second films together.

"'Sin City' number two is primarily an adaptation of the book 'A Dame to Kill For'," Miller said, adding, "It also features the short story, 'Just Another Saturday Night' and two new stories. One involving Jessica Alba's character, Nancy Callahan, that I came up with for the movie in order to tie things together and make it be more united with the first."

The inclusion of "Just Another Saturday Night" means a possible return for Mickey Rourke as Marv -- the story centers on his character and more or less runs parallel to "That Yellow Bastard" featured in the first movie. However, the actor has previously stated he has no desire to reprise his role. "No, I'm not interested in that right now. That's not a reality right now. It's pissing in the wind. 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," he said a few years ago. Maybe they worked out a bigger paycheck to bring him back.

Just based on "A Dame to Kill For" at least, it would mean Rosario Dawson, Devon Aoki and Michael Clarke Duncan (as Gail, Miho and Manute) would be back along with Clive Owen as Dwight. But with three other stories being tossed into the mix and a clear thread being drawn to the first movie, it's seems Miller, Monahan and Rodriguez will likely try to get a couple more folks from "Sin City" to come back to play as well. It's all up to the script at this point and expectations are running very high, but Rodriguez is adamant it be up to standards before he'll go ahead with it so we'll see if that spring date holds out.
