'Sin City' Sequel Release Date Pushed Back
Fans of Sin City will have to wait even longer for the highly anticipated sequel to hit the big screen.
The Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films has moved Sin City: A Dame To Kill For from an Oct, 4, 2013, release to nearly a year later -- on Aug. 22, 2014.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are co-directing the movie, which features a star-studded cast including returning castmembers Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis and newcomers Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The pic currently has the new date to itself. Earlier in the month Guardians of the Galaxy, Dracula and The Expendables 3 are set to hit theaters.
It's been more than eight years since Sin City, based on Miller's comic series, opened in theaters. The 2005 film has grossed $158.7 million worldwide to date.
This is the second project based on the work of Miller to be pushed back this year. Just one month ago, 300: Rise of an Empire was postponed from its August 2013 release date to March 7, 2014.
Rodriguez has also helmed another project that is set for release: Machete Kills, a follow-up to 2010's Machete, which is slated for a Sept. 13 release.
