Excited to finally see Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite for the long-awaited sequel to Sin City? Well, get ready to wait a little longer.
Dimension Films has announced that the follow-up to the 2005 cult classic, titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has been pushed back to 2014. If you listen closely, you can hear millions of fanboys grinding their teeth.
The film, which was originally slated to open on October 4, has now been pushed back to August 22, 2014. Dimension has offered no reason for the shift, but a late August opening gives the film a slot in the end of summer lineup -- which is arguably a lot more prestigious than an early October opening. The film is currently the only title opening on that weekend too, which is another plus.
This marks the second Frank Miller feature to get bumped from 2013 to 2014. The comic creator’s other sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, has been moved to March 7, 2014.
This is disappointing news for Sin City fans -- but after seven years of false starts and rumors, what’s another 10 months, right?
