Miller Says Sin Only Delayed

“Sin City” creator has confirmed to Rotten Tomatoes that the upcoming sequel to that 2005 ultra-violent comic adaptation is only delayed, not cancelled.

Talk of its cancellation sprang up when actor Michael Madsen gave an interview in which he said he hadn’t seen a script as yet and shooting, originally slated to take place next month, isn’t happening.

Now, Miller says that “Sin City 2 is still likely to happen, just not right away. The script is written and Robert [Rodriguez] and I are raring to go, but it looks like I’m going to be doing ‘The Spirit’ first and Robert’s going to be doing ‘Barbarella’ first.”

Having moved on to other projects, will they return to this? It’d be surprising. Even if it does go ahead, expect a 2009 release at the absolute earliest.
