Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was scheduled to be released on October 4th, 2013, but The Weinstein Company recently announced that they pushed the film's release date back to August 22nd, 2014. We have to wait almost another year before we see the movie. I don't see it as a big deal. I've already waited eight years for it, another year isn't going to hurt. There is a ton of other good films being released in the mean time to keep us busy while we wait.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have been in production on the film for a few months. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner, and Stacy Keach.
The plot for Sin City 2 comes from the stories A Dame To Kill For, Just Another Saturday Night, and a new one Frank Miller wrote called The Long, Bad Night, which apparently centers on Alba's character, Nancy Callahan, who will be the connection between the two films.
One of the stories follows Dwight (Brolin), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to "The Big Fat Kill", which was featured in the first film. It will also explain how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. In the first film Dwight was played by Clive Owen.
