Frank Millers long-awaited “Sin City 2” will finally begin production in the second half of 2010, to be followed by a possible adaptation of Frank Miller’s “Hard Boiled.”
According to a report on Mania, “Sin City 2” producer Stephen L’Heureux confirmed that the sequel will be based upon an original script by Miller, who will once again co-direct with Robert Rodriguez .
Additionally, L’Heureux revealed that Miller is writing the screenplay adaptation for “Hard Boiled,” which Miller will also possibly direct.
“Hard Boiled,” the three issue miniseries published by Dark Horse in 1990 is an ultra violet story following an insurance investigator named Carl Seltz who discovers that he is a cyborg who may be the only hope of an enslaved robot population.
Still in early development and with the hiccup of “Sin City 2,” “Hard Boiled” still years away from fruition.
“We’re still developing [‘Hard Boiled’]. We got the project in turnaround from Warner Bros and Frank,” L’Heureux explained. “With ‘Sin City’ just on the horizon I don’t think we’d be able to do it with Frank right away. As simple as ‘Sin City’ seems, it’s a very complex scheduling with all these actors and it’s a very demanding shoot to be on a sound stage all day long. We have to space it for Frank.”
Several stars from the first “Sin City” have said they would return for the sequel, including Jamie King, Michael Clark Duncan, Rosario Dawson and Alexis Bledel.
L’Heureux also hinted that “Sin City 3” might also be in the works.
