Fans of stylized Frank Miller films will be disappointed to know that another of the author's anticipated sequels, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," has now been pushed back, this time to Aug. 22, 2014. The "Sin City" follow-up was previously slated for release this October.
The move comes just one month after "300: Rise of an Empire," also based on Miller's work, was postponed from this August until March 7, 2014.
Dimension Films gave no reason for the "Sin City" delay. The Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel had been gestating for quite some time before finally beginning production in October 2012. "A Dame to Kill For" will be largely based on Miller's second entry in the comic-book series but will incorporate new plotlines written for the movie.
The sequel finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and others joining Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King, all of whom are returning from 2005's original. "Sin City" collected $158.8 million at the box office worldwide.
Those looking to whet their Rodriguez-hungry apetite can feast on "Machete Kills," a follow-up to 2010's "Machete," when it his theaters Sept. 13.
