No matter how much we want to see “Sin City 2” begin production, we’re not quite sure if it’s ever going to happen. Like chasing a carrot on a stick, we’ve been looking for official word on the “Sin City” sequel for a while now, but it always seems to remain tantalizingly out of reach.
During the Toronto International Film Festival, MTV News tracked down “Sin City” actor Clive Owen (in town to promote his new film “The Boys Are Back”) to find out whether he thinks the project is ever going to happen—or if Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’ follow-up could indeed be just over the horizon.
“I’m hearing it might be next year,” Owen told MTV News. “I heard that from a very good source… recently.”However, Owen wouldn’t reveal where he heard the news (“Maybe one of them,” he grinned, when asked if it was Miller or Rodriguez), and he didn’t let fans’ hopes get too carried away. According to the actor, he hasn’t read a script for the film yet.
“I had a great time on the first one. It was a stunning film,” said Owen. ” I think it was an absolutely extraordinary achievement, what [Rodriguez] did with that film. It is a genuinely original movie.”
