Thought I'd start up a rumor/speculation thread for this, since Todd Doogan of The Digital Bits has just posted some informed speculation about Angelina Jolie being cast in the movie. Several stories I've seen have attributed both Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez as claiming that "A Dame to Kill For" will be adapted into the second movie. At least one article I saw somewhere also said that Miller would be writing new material for the movie as well, perhaps some backstory for Hartigan, and/or some continuation of Nancy's story. I haven't read Dame, but as Doogan says, it's basically a prequel to both Hard Goodbye and Big Fat Kill. Todd speculates that Jolie will be playing Ava, whom I presume is the titular "dame to kill for." I'm not clear on when this sequel is going to be released. Todd says end of '06/start of '07, which might work out for Jolie's schedule, since her baby is due early in the summer. IMDB already lists some specific foreign release dates for Sin City 2, and they're mostly July/August '06, but of course that might be old information, or just pure guesswork. They definitely would have to have started filming already to meet those dates, and I don't know of any information saying that they've started yet.
