Sin City: The Movie

Anyone who hasn't heard of the graphic novel series Sin City, stop what your doing and fit a $20 graphic novel into your financial schedgle. Robert Rodriguez is directing an upcomming Sin City flic and Frank Miller is writing it. I wondered how this film would fair and so far, it seems to be working. Oh yeah, Tarantino is directing a small portion of the film too.

Principle Cast: Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Elijah Wood, Maria Bello, Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Clarke Duncan, Carla Gugino, Josh Hartnett, Michael Madsen, Jaime King, Brittany Murphy, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, and Nick Stahl.

No, Rodriguez is trying to bring Frank Miller's art to life. Here's an example of Sin City, albiet a poorly scanned image...



Check out the guy Clive Owen is playing, Dwight:

Very Noir. Nice.

Hopefully, this won't suck.

I understand the redness of the photo, but the white rectangles on his face, are they glowtape?

Oooo....the Sin City movie in motion.

The Trailer is up!

I'm excited! Along with Batman Begins, 2005 is looking to be a very satisfying season for popcorn flicks!

Why is Bruce Willis not credited when he is clearly in the first picture? Poor Bruce.

Haha! Elijah Wood is playing a guy who eats people! That creepy bastard!

I think the story of the film is a mixture of multiple Sin City graphic novels. So it'll probably be an ensamble cast. Kinda a more stylized/violent Pulp Fiction...

With Robert Rodriguez at the helm and Quentin Tarrantino lending a directing hand, I'm super excited! No more Rodriguez kid films!

The only way this could get any better is if it had Owen Wilson in it!
