Bruce Willis had a pretty great 2012, all things considered. There were disappointments, to be sure: ill-conceived Henry Cavill vehicle "The Cold Light Of Day," Stephen Frears' tone-deaf "Lay The Favorite," a brief role in "The Expendables 2" and a straight-to-video picture called "Fire With Fire" alongside Josh Duhamel. But those weaknesses were certainly overshadowed by his far more visible strengths, with the actor giving two of his best performances in years, in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and Rian Johnson's "Looper," the latter of which Willis has described as the best film he's ever been in.

2013 could prove to be the year of Robert Rodriguez. The prolific filmmaker has always been uber-productive, but this year, we'll get a double dose: he'll have two films hit theaters a month apart of each other. The first, "Machete Kills" will land in theaters on September 13th via Open Road and and then four weeks later, Dimension Films' "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" will follow. And with cameras rolling on the highly anticipated follow-up to "Sin City," three more actors have joined the cast.

Ever since "Sin City" proved to be a robust hit on its release in April 2005, talk has percolated about a sequel. After all, the film was relatively inexpensive to make, and there were plenty more stories from Frank Miller's source material comics that could lead to another film. But between the ups and downs of the Weinstein Brothers' Dimension Films, the busy-ness of co-director Robert Rodriguez, and the difficulty of re-assembling the all-star cast, it was much-discussed, but never quite came together.

Director Robert Rodriguez has been promising a sequel to his beloved 2005 neo-noir "Sin City" for so long that it began to fall into the "we'll believe it when we see it" category. But the dream is now a reality. Titled, "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," Dimension Films, AR Films and Rodriguez's recently formed Quick Draw Productions announced this evening that production had begun on the sequel and that casting would begin next week.

In a film of standout moments and colorful characters, Clive Owen was hard to forget as the noble Dwight in "Sin City". Dwight makes a few appearances in Frank Miller's "Sin City" comic world, so it would only make sense that Owen would reprise the role, even if his character repeatedly undergoes excessive transformations. But if "Sin City 2" were to shoot this summer, as Robert Rodriguez is now aiming for, then the director will need to get on the phone.

"Sin City" roared onto screens back in 2005, and ever since then, sequel talk has moved in fits and starts with very little happening. But 2011 saw the most movement in a while, with William Monahan being hired on to finish the script, and Frank Miller teasing that Jessica Alba's character of Nancy Callahan would have a storyline that would thread the two movies together. That start date has remained always shifting or forever elusive, though now, Robert Rodriguez says it might just happen this year.
