Looks like Mickey Rourke is down with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because Seth Meyers did not skimp on the ice, the water, or the "bucket" on last night's 'Late Night.' Rourke appeared on the show to chat about next week's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' but things soon turned to more pressing
With all of the big news coming out of Comic-Con this year, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Perhaps that's why the extended red band trailer that played in Hall H has made its way online, giving us our best look yet at the decade-in-the-making sequel.
Director Robert Rodriguez released a new 'Sin City 2' trailer unto the Reddit community following an AMA, and it is exactly what you'd expect -- hardboiled narration, stylized black-and-white cinematography, tough guys, sexy women, and an absurdly good cast that includes the likes of Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Lady Gaga.
With so much attention lavished on comic book adaptations, it's surprising that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' isn't projected to be one of the bigger films of the summer. Then again, it doesn't feature any superheroes, and it's a sequel to a film that came out nine years ago. But to stoke interest in the return to 'Sin City,' character posters have been released.
While we patiently await Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' we've got some potentially exciting news courtesy of the Weinstein Company -- there may be even more 'Sin City' stories in our near future. Along with the upcoming sequel, Bob Weinstein says a television series is also in development. Hopefully we won't have to wait several years to see the results of this project as well.
'Sin City 2' finally has its 'Dame to Kill For.' After many casting updates, including the return of veteran 'Sin City' actors like Jessica Alba and Bruce Willis, and introducing newcomers like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green has just been cast in the title role of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'
It's no secret that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' is in pre-production; an official announcement was issued for the follow-up back in April, while more recently we caught a glimpse of a pistol-packing Jessica Alba preparing to reprise her role as "Nancy" in the Robert Rodriguez film. Now we know when the film is scheduled to get underway, thanks to another beauty venturing back to 'Sin City,' Rosario Dawson.
Mel Gibson’s attempts at resurrecting his career after a few highly-publicized meltdowns have been rocky, at best. Jodie Foster’s ‘The Beaver’ bombed. Recently, Warner Bros. passed on a screenplay Gibson acquired from ‘Basic Instinct’ writer Joe Eszterhas. But a celebrated cult director would like to lend Gibson a helping hand by casting him in a potential sequel.
