SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Gets A Small Title Change; Plus Our First Look At Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke
The long awaited and occasionally delayed sequel to Sin City will finally be hitting theaters August 22nd after originally taking moviegoers by storm way back in 2005. Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have teamed back up to tell another story from Sin City, and this time it’s about another dame. The sequel had a slight title change shortly after it was announced and it seems to have undergone and ever so slight one now that we’re closer to release.
Bleeding Cool reports that the film will now be called Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The writer’s name has been added before the normal title since he helped direct it, co-wrote the screenplay, and wrote the comics it’s based on. The site theorizes the addition may be due to a 1916 black and white short film with a similar title. Studios get lawsuit happy even if it is an old, old film sporting a similar title. That just avoids the problem altogether.
ComingSoon.Net posted a few new shots of the film from a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. The two pages give us our first look at Jessica Alba as Nancy Callahan and Mickey Rourke as Marv. There’s a tiny shot of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a “completely new and fresh” role too. You can read a few words from Miller on the pages below. Click to see the pics bigger, of course. Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For hits theaters August 22nd and stars Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, and Stacy Keach.
