Robert Rodriguez has offered some details on the long-awaited sequel to Sin City.
It was announced last week that production will finally begin this summer on Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Speaking to MTV, Rodriguez said that the casting process is yet to begin. Many of the first film's cast members, including Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson, are scheduled to reprise their roles.
Rodriguez stated that he and Frank Miller will share the casting duties, explaining: "Frank and I go together to meet everybody.
"I like seeing his reaction because he drew these characters and when they walk in the room, you see it on his face. He doesn't know who it's going to be until he sees them. Then he's like, 'This is exactly like the character I created'. It's pretty exciting.
Asked whether Angelina Jolie is still in the running for a role, as has long been rumoured, Rodriguez was cagey.
"I haven't even gotten to meet with her yet about it or discuss with Frank about who we would want to go with or talk to first," he replied. "That's a fun process, but that probably won't happen in the next month."
Rodriguez went on to confirm that the sequel will reprise the first film's three-act structure, saying: "Three is a good number. I think two is just weird. Three feels like a dramatic structure, even if they're separate stories. I feels like one, two, three acts and maybe a wrap around.
"It worked on Sin City and that's probably the first anthology that ever worked, that I can think of. So I'm going to stick with that template because, one, I invented it.
"I can claim it and go, 'I'm going to do it again'. If it doesn't work, then I'll know that Sin City was just a fluke.
