'Sin City' Sequel Release Date Pushed Back

Dimension Films has postponed Robert Rodriguez's and Frank Miller's movie nearly a year.

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.
