‘Sin City 2’: The Movie Finally Has a Release Date

Sin CityThe long-delayed, even longer-awaited follow-up to 2005’s Sin City has finally been given an official release date: Oct. 4, 2013.

Original co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller — the latter, of course, being the writer of the graphic-novel series on which the films are based — are returning to direct Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which will begin shooting this summer.

For a long time, all we had to go on for the highly anticipated sequel was years of wishy-washy speculation, but in addition to the release date, much has since been confirmed. The sequel will be shot, fittingly, in 3D and, like its predecessor, be presented in black and white; Mickey Rourke is one of several cast members returning from the first film (including Rosario Dawson and Michael Madsen, among others); and a press release teases that “huge names” will round out the rest of the cast. Could there be truth to the Angelina Jolie rumors that date back to 2006?!
