Miller Spills Some "Sin City 2" Beans

by | April 3, 2006 | Comments

Author/filmmaker Frank Miller had a few words with MTV’s movie department recently, and the guy doled out a few choice tidbits regarding "Sin City 2," which, if all goes according to plan, should begin shooting in Austin before the end of the summer. (Yes!)

""It jumps around a bit," writer/co-director Frank Miller said, "but mostly it’s one story, incorporating some short stories that weave in and out of that."

Miller, who wrote and illustrated the hard-boiled graphic-novel series the films are based on, said he is "well in progress" on the screenplay for "Sin City 2" and anticipates that he and co-director Robert Rodriguez should be shooting as early as June in Austin, Texas.

The first "Sin City" took its stories from the first, third and fourth books — "The Hard Goodbye," "The Big Fat Kill" and "That Yellow Bastard." This next one will jump back in the sequence and derive most of its story from the second book, "A Dame to Kill For." But even though it’s the second book, the action is set before book one, developing Dwight’s past, loves, lusts and alliances.

Before Marv sleeps with Goldie, before Detective Hartigan finds skinny little Nancy all grown up and dancing at a strip joint, Dwight has a love affair with Ava, who leaves him to marry someone wealthy. Four years later, Ava’s back, claiming the marriage is no good, and asking Dwight to help her out. This being "Sin City," you know there’s more to the story than that. (And that to-die-for dame? Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Rose McGowan have all been tipped to play the femme fatale, but a rep for the studio said there’s no word on Ava yet.)

Miller is also toying with incorporating "Blue Eyes," a short story that introduces the assassin Delia. The chain of events helps set up "The Hard Goodbye" and "The Big Fat Kill" in the original film, but what about what happens next? Miller is also writing a new story that’ll explore what happens to Nancy after Hartigan’s suicide. "Yeah, there will be surprises, but they wouldn’t be surprises if I told you, would they?" Miller said."
