The newest information to come out of the interview was that Rodriguez was in talks with Mike Allred about making a Madman film, which Rodriguez optioned in 1998. This is Allred's best-known work and character, and it's incredibly surprising to realize that even after 12 years, nothing has moved forward yet. According to imdb, this project is currently In-Development, which could mean a handful of things. My best guess is that Rodriguez and Allred are shooting ideas back and forth, story wise, before they get to scripting.
Sin City 2 seems to finally be moving forward. He still wants to do the film though, even though it's been 5 years since the last one.
== TEASER ==
Rodriguez has Spy Kids 4 and Machete (supposedly releasing this year) before he can officially start production on Sin City 2. Aside from that, there are still rumors floating around about a Red Sonja film, but as far as we can tell, it's nothing more than just fans talking.
We're still working on Sin City, I want to do it so we'll see. It's just a matter of when... We have a script... a rewritten script that we still have to write and it's just finding the right time slot to do it.
Although Robert Rodriguez isn't known for doing comic book movies, he seems to be dipping into said franchises quite a bit. His work in Sin City two was pretty dead on, when comparing it to the comic book, and a lot of his other films are well made, even though they're pretty much all green screen now-a-days. I have a lot of faith in this guy, not just because I enjoy his films, but because he seems to have a sincere interest in these franchises and not just looking for a paycheck. Out of the few films he's planning on doing, I'm most interested in Madman. I'd love to see his take on the book and even more so, the art. Rodriguez did a great job style wise with Sin City, and I'm hoping he can use his immense talent to take Mike Allred's art style and apply it to a Madman film. What do you guys think about Robert Rodriguez? What film would you most like to see him tackle?
