Robert Rodriguez To Shoot Sin City Sequel In 2012

By

There’s a whole subgenre of Movies Robert Rodriguez Never Got Around to Making. At various times in the last decade, the filmmaker was attached to/was working on/was caught on a microphone musing about the possibility of a Red Sonja remake, a Barbarella remake, an adaptation of the cult comic Madman, and an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars. (So he dodged at least one bullet.)

Still, last summer at Comic-Con he promised that he was working on a pair of Machete sequels, a remake of the animation classic Heavy Metal, and a long-promised Sin City sequel, and apparently he wasn’t kidding.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Austin-based filmmaker announced that he would begin filming a new Machete movie – tentatively titled Machete Kills – next month. He also said that Sin City 2 will film this summer.

More intriguingly, Rodriguez announced that he was expanding his basement empire with the formation of Quickdraw Animation, which has two films in production. One is a family movie with an undisclosed title; the other is Heavy Metal, which will presumably maintain the multi-filmmaker anthology structure of the original film. Perhaps realizing that he hadn’t accounted for the possibility of the universe suddenly expanding into a nine-day week, Rodriguez also took the opportunity to discuss plans to launch his own cable network, which will be called “El Rey,” Entertainment Weekly said.
