Not even a month after “Sin City” star Michael Clarke Duncan told us he hadn’t heard a peep about “Sin City 2?, the plot thickens. Now, Rosario Dawson, the straight-talking star who once strapped herself into black leather to play the role of gang gal Gail says that she’s leaving room open on her 2009 calendar for the long-awaited sequel.
“Yeah, I talked to Robert [Rodriguez] and Frank [Miller],” she said of a recent conversation with the director and writer who joined forces with Quentin Tarantino for the hit 2005 film. “They actually just finished the script for ‘Sin City 2’ a few months ago.”Dawson’s comments echo the statements made by Mickey Rourke, Jaime King and others that they’re be kept apprised of the latest script developments. Meanwhile, additional ensemble possibilities like Duncan, Alexis Bledel and Angelina Jolie told us when we last spoke with them that they haven’t heard a peep.
By all accounts, “Sin City 2” will be comprised of various tales from Miller’s groundbreaking graphic novel series. Although it will focus mainly on “A Dame to Kill For,” Miller’s deliriously disjointed narrative could conceivably bring any character back from the dead. The writer/director has indicated in the past that such deceased characters as Dwight (Clive Owen), Shellie (Brittany Murphy), Nancy (Jessica Alba), Manute (Michael Clarke Duncan) and Rosario’s Gail could all return for the sequel.
“Hopefully that will happen,” Rosario Dawson explained. “There’s talks about it shooting sometime this year.”
