SIN CITY begins to get crazy cool
Hey folks, Harry here... Michael Fleming at Variety.com has broke a story about how Robert Rodriguez, in order to be able to have Frank Miller as his co-director on SIN CITY, resigned from the Director's Guild (DGA) as to not set a potentially damaging precedent which could be abused outside of this particularly unique situation. However, in talking to Michael Fleming he spilled the beans on some of the additional "Holy Shit" cool things about SIN CITY.
#1: He says that Quentin Tarantino will be a "Special Guest Director" on one of the Sin City stories in the film!!!
#2: In addition to the names mentioned in yesterday's story - he mentioned to Fleming that he's been talking with Johnny Depp, Steve Buscemi, Christopher Walken and Michael Douglas!
Add those names to Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Willis, Elijah Wood, Mickey Rourke, Brittany Murphy, Kate Bosworth, Jaime King, Josh Hartnett, Marley Shelton, Maria Bello and Benicio Del Toro and you've got a potentially amazing line up, possibly the biggest all star line up for a comic adaptation period.
And that's the latest from SIN CITY...


that sounds interesting. anyone wanna sum up what sin City is all about? is it a series of short stories or what?

ive read one sin city 'yarn', theyre all really cooly drawn, black and white inverted - kinda seedy detective/gangsta/underworld stories essentially, like 30s crime movies, hard bitten cops etc. though the one i read was like that but involved a sexy ninja chick with roller blades called miho who acts as a kinda guardian angel and chops peoples heads off at her master's command. real cool. i was flicking through some other issues in comic shop yesterday actually and i think the others are like that as well, a mix between trad crime stories and proper comic book superhero type characters.

is robert rodriguez directing 'sandman' aswell?

Does this mean that QT might be shooting this in HD?

Holy crap, that's gonna be so rad.  I wonder if they're going to give QT his old crew: Buscemi, Willis, etc.  Or let him have Depp or Wood or something.  I'd prefer the latter.

It looks like this movie will be filled with actors and QT will be working alongside Frank Miller too

Dude, totally!  Let me explain: I use bad old-school California cliche phrases because my parents moved me to Florida a couple of moths ago from the 714, and I'm trying to perserve my identity as a Californian.  Bro!

I take it Airborne is one of those late 80's-early 90's flix that has a bunch of "Cool" dudes in day-glo shorts doing crazy stunts on their mad crazy wheels?

I think they even got a "I'm too sexy for my clothes" sequence where a character tries on different outfits.

lol i dont want to trn this into an Airborne discussion but its about a kid who's a surfer dude from california and he has to move to Cincinnati, basic fish outta water story. he has to prove himself by skating in a race that's on the most dangerous road, "Devil's Backbone"


seth green as the main character's coousin acting very gay, or was he acting at all?

Mr.Transluscent

Re: QT to direct a story in the upcoming Sin City?

Post by Mr.Transluscent » Sat Mar 20, 2004 8:54 am

So basically it's "Footloose" with skates instead of tractors.  I get it.

Anyway, back on topic, could somebody kind of explain the premise of Sin City to me?

I got that figure too. When you pull the lever he starts to vibrate and says," Is that all you've got you pansies!"

It's an awesome collectible.
