Frank Miller opens up about 'Sin City 2'

Frank Miller has revealed more details about his forthcoming Sin City sequel.

The comic book's original author said the characters Nancy Callahan played by Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke's character Marv would return for the second film although it is not known whether either star will reprise their roles.

He told MTV:

Sin City 2 is primarily an adaptation of the book A Dame To Kill For. It also features the short story Just Another Saturday Night and two new stories.

Miller added: "One involving Jessica Alba's character, Nancy Callahan, that I came up with for the movie in order to tie things together and make it be more united with the first."

The graphic novel for A Dame To Kill For also features characters played in the original 2005 film by Rosario Dawson, Devon Aoki and Michael Clarke Duncan.

William Monahan, the Oscar-Winning writer of The Departed, was hired to work on the sequel in the summer.

Filming is expected to take place in Spring 2012.
