‘Sin City’ sequel gets Oscar winner William Monahan to work on script

Director Robert Rodriguez has has brought on The Departed screenwriter to put the finishing touches on the script for his much anticipated comic book based follow-up.

Earlier this year Rodriguez confirmed that Sin City creator Frank Miller had completed a script for Sin City 2. The director later revealed that financing was finally place for the long anticipated sequel but that he's waiting on script touch-ups to begin work. Now it appears the production team won't have long to wait for a shooting screenplay.

William Monahan, who won an Academy Award for his screenwriting work on Martin Scorsese's The Departed, has been brought on board to finalize the Sin City 2 script in hopes to have filming geared up by late this year or early next.

Although no casting announcements have been made, in the source material major characters that make up most of the 'A Dame to Kill For' storyline would likely involve bringing back actors Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen and Jessica Alba.
