Weinstein’s won’t return to Sin City

When’s “Sin City 2” coming!?

Well, if you ask any of the attached cast members, “Soon”.

If you ask Bob and Harvey Weinstein, they’ll likely change the topic.

They won’t be skirting around the issue because they haven’t got the coin to make it, they’ll be keeping mum because their shingle (The Weinstein Company) has lost the rights to the film. And why? Because they never followed through on their plans to make the follow-up to Robert Rodriguez’s sensational pulp-corn flick.

According to IESB, a private equity group will likely finance the film, with Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios producing. What usually happens in this case is the film is financed, in this case independently, and then sold to the highest (though not always) bidder.

Considering the script has been done for months, and both Rodriguez and co-director Frank Miller have been ready and waiting to go for quite a while, this new turn of events could actually spur on a start date.
