Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is an upcoming 2014 American film and sequel to the 2005 film Sin City. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are set to direct a script co-written by them and William Monahan and primarily based on the second book in the Sin City series by Miller. One of the smaller plots of the film is based on the short story “Just Another Saturday Night”, which is collected in Booze, Broads & Bullets, the fifth book in the comic series. Two original stories written by Miller were also created exclusively for the film. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was scheduled to be released on October 4, 2013 but was pushed back until August 22, 2014.
The film stars an ensemble cast including returning cast members Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Powers Boothe, Mickey Rourke, and Bruce Willis. Newcomers to the series include Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Marton Csokas, Julia Garner, Juno Temple, Ray Liotta, Stacy Keach, Christopher Meloni, Lady Gaga, Jeremy Piven, and Crystal McCahill.
In 2005, after Sin City was released, Rodriguez announced plans for a follow-up film that would feature many of the same characters. He planned for the film to be based on A Dame to Kill For. Miller said the film would be a prequel and a sequel with interlinking stories both before and after the first film. Miller, who was writing the screenplay in 2006, had anticipated for production to begin later in the year. However, Rodriguez had also said that official casting would not start until the script was finalized and in studio’s hands. At the 2007 Comic-Con, Frank Miller confirmed that he and Robert Rodriguez had completed a script, but blamed the Weinstein brothers for the delay.
During the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, Rodriguez stated that the script for Sin City 2 was nearing completion and that it was his hope that shooting could begin before the end of the year. Rodriguez said that the Sin City 2 would comprise A Dame to Kill For, Just Another Saturday Night and two original stories Sin City creator Frank Miller has written for the film, one new story reportedly titled “The Long, Bad Night”. In August 2011, Rodriguez stated that the script is almost completely finalized and that he has already received funding for the film, and that production will commence once the script is finalized. In September 2011, it was revealed that William Monahan has been brought in to add the finishing touches to Miller’s screenplay. In March 2012, Rodriguez announced that production on Sin City 2 would begin in mid-2012. He also mentioned that the cast would be “of the same caliber and eclecticism” as that of the previous film.
On April 13, 2012, the film was confirmed, in addition to the new title, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The film was expected to go into production in the summer of 2012, but principal photography began near the end of October 2012. On June 17, 2013, the film’s release date was pushed back from October 4, 2013, until August 22, 2014. Rodriguez later explained that the film was always intended for release in 2014 and that they were merely holding the October date for Machete Kills.
During initial pre-production after the release of the first film in 2005, Angelina Jolie was said to be Rodríguez’s first choice in the role of Ava, so much so that he was delaying production to correspond with her pregnancy, according to Rosario Dawson, but subsequent articles throughout the years stated that other rumored frontrunners in addition to Jolie were Salma Hayek, Rose McGowan, and Rachel Weisz. However, on January 29, 2013, it was officially announced that Eva Green had been cast in the role.
On October 29, 2012, it was confirmed that Devon Aoki would not return to reprise her role as Miho due to her second pregnancy, and that Jamie Chung would take over the role in the second film. On December 5, 2012 it was announced that Dennis Haysbert would replace Michael Clarke Duncan (who died before production began) as Manute.
On January 7, 2013 it was confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast as new character Johnny, described as “a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.” The character is not to be confused with another character named Johnny, featured in the short story “Daddy’s Little Girl”. The next day, it was reported that Josh Brolin was cast as Dwight. On January 29, 2013 it was revealed which characters new castmembers Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Christopher Meloni, and Jeremy Piven would play (their casting was announced much earlier, but their roles unspecified). Liotta was cast as Joey Canelli, a married businessman who is cheating on his wife. Temple was cast as Sally, Joey’s mistress and a girl from Old Town. Meloni was cast as Mort, Bob’s new partner and one of the few straight cops of Basin City. Piven replaces Michael Madsen as Bob (although Madsen was initially announced to be returning during pre-production). The same day, it was announced that Julia Garner was cast as new character Marcy, a young stripper who crosses paths with new character Johnny. On February 5, it was announced that Stacy Keach had been cast as villain Wallenquist.
Frank Miller affirmed in an interview that Brittany Murphy would’ve joined the cast if she had not died on December 20, 2009. (Wikipedia)
