‘Sin City’ Sequel Finally Overcomes Delays and Starts Casting

Just last month we heard from director Robert Rodriguez about his ridiculously delayed Sin City follow-up. The filmmaker promised fans — whose first questions to him are often about the sequel to the 2005 dark graphic novel adaptation — that production would begin soon.
