Frank Miller movie news!
With so many Sin City books to adapt, ( Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Sin City: The Hard Goodbye, etc.) it is obvious that film makers would want to expound on the first highly successful film and develop a franchise. According to a report from Comics2Film at Mania.com, film producer Stephen L'Heureux (The Boondock Saints) confirmed that there are presently two Frank Miller projects currently in talks; the sequel to ' Sin City,' and ' Hard Boiled.'
According to the report, L'Heureux confirmed that production on the sequel to 'Sin City' will begin in the later part of 2010.
Unlike the first movie, which used the graphic novels as both screenplay and story boards, the sequel will be based on an original script by Miller. As with the original, Miller will co-direct with Robert Rodriguez. Another of Miller's books, ' Hard Boiled,' which was published by Dark Horse in the early 1992, is still in the early stages of production according to L'Heureux; but the plan is to have Miller's influence heavily involved.
'Hard Boiled' is considered to be one of the most violent graphic novels ever, written by Miller with art by Geof Darrow. The story is set in the future and focuses on Nixon, a tax collector dealing with internal conflict and issues with his identity.
"We're still developing it. We got the project in turnaround from Warner Bros and Frank. It's such a pleasure to work with someone like Frank Miller. He's so smart and passionate about story at all levels from 1940s noir pulp to modern film."
