Why Has it Taken So Long for Sin City 2?

I loved the first Sin City movie from Robert Rodriguez; the music, actors, visuals and violence were all fantastic.

Practically every year since its release in 2005 we have been promised Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and yet the movie never seems to appear. It is apparently filming just now, scheduled for release next year but frankly I’ll believe it when I see it.

Clive Owen is not returning and has been replaced by Josh Brolin and details are scarce on whether Captain Crazy, sorry Bruce Willis will also return.

I find it odd that they keep making Machete movies, despite the overall lack of interest from audiences. Machete Kills made about $3 million in the US so it’s hardly been a huge hit.

I would have thought since the original Sin City made $158,753,820 worldwide with a budget of $40 Million that a sequel would have been green-lit with no trouble at all, yet it’s taken 8 years for it to come along and until it’s actually in cinemas I’ll remain skeptical that it’s going to happen.

Do you think they have waited too long for Sin City 2 or will you lap it up if/when it hits theatres next year?
