Oscar Winning scripter William Monahan (“The Departed”, the upcoming James Toback-detested remake of “The Gambler”) has been charged with the task of polishing Frank Miller’s “Sin City 2″ script, according to our hombres at THR.
Now this film’s been on the drawing board for quite some time – a couple of years, in fact – but according to director Robert Rodriguez, speaking in a recent interview with We Got This Covered, the hold up is due to the script (Rodriguez is adamant that they have financing). Obviously Miller’s draft needed work; goes without saying, when it comes to doctoring, one can’t do much better than Monahan. If the film gets the greenlight this time it’ll be because of Monahan’s work on it no doubt.
At Comic-Con in July, Rodriguez stated that “Sin City 2 : A Dame to Kill For” has a script (by Frank Miller) and a possible start date (“It could shoot as early as later this year”) and, like the original, features three stories; two of those stories will be new, the third will be Miller’s “A Dame to Kill For”.
The Austin-based rebel filmmaker also said it’s likely Jessica Alba will reprising her role as Nancy. Oh, and it will be shot in 3D.
