Sin City: A Dame to Kill, the sequel to 2005’s Sin City, had been eyeing an October 2013 release, however Dimension Films and The Weinstein Company have decided to push the film back from October 2013 to August 2014. It took the sequel more than 8 years to get made, so I suppose another year of waiting won’t hurt.
No official reason for the delay has been given yet, but it seems the shift may have been talked about for a while as we have yet to see any promotion material from the movie, other than some set images released earlier this year. The competition in October wasn’t anything to worry about, so the delay could be production-related to ensure all the neo-noir style visuals have enough time for completion. Filming only began in April so an October release was cutting it fine (Sin City had over a year between filming and release).
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is written and directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez. The film stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, Eva Green and Julia Garner.
