Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have said that production is ready to begin on the long-awaited comic book movie sequel.
"The first question I am always asked is, 'When will you make another Sin City?' " said Rodriquez.
"I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait."
