In light of all the recent casting news for Batman Begins, we have ANOTHER comic-based movie with an impressive ensemble cast.

From Greg's Previews http://movies.yahoo.com/upcoming/

"...Sin City, the ambitious, super-star-studded, action-packed, film noir adaptation of Frank Miller's acclaimed graphic novel series about life in a dangerous fictional metropolis.

Cast: Mickey Rourke (Marv), Bruce Willis (Hartigan), Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Maria Bello, Kate Bosworth, Steve Buscemi, Benicio del Toro, Michael Douglas, Carla Gugino (Lucille), Josh Hartnett, Jaime King (Goldie), Brittany Murphy (Shellie), Marley Shelton, Christopher Walken, Elijah Wood;other cast not announced yet..."


I've always considered Frank Miller to be an artist in the truest sense of the word, and I'm THRILLED that his work will be receiving the kind of attention from the film world that it deserves. My only worry is in the translating of his stripped-but-stylized noir look and feel of his books to the big screen. An ambitious project, to say the least.

I am quivering with anticipation.

Isn't Tarantino doing this? If so, I think you can count on Samuel L. Jackson being in there somewhere.



""[The word] liberal derives from the Latin 'liberalis' - of freedom, befitting the free. Synonyms are progressive, broad-minded, unprejudiced and generous; while antonyms include reactionary, narrow-minded, intolerant and stingy. Accordingly, a political liberal is an open-minded person who considers all the arguments before drawing conclusions. A conservative, on the other hand, clings to one position and sees no reason to entertain diverse viewpoints because he already has his mind made up. Are mainstream media 'liberal'? I certainly hope so."

Robert Rodriguez is the principal director, but I believe Frank Miller is getting a co-director credit and Quentin is directing a segment (or a storyline) as "special guest director" or something of the like.



Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.
[He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.]
Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
[Keith walks off]
Alexa: Ewww!

Robert Rodriguez actually quit the Directors guild to make this film and be able to have Frank Miller's name along with his listed as 'Director'. The Directors Guild only allows one director to be listed per film and one Assistant Director.

He also did this same thing a few years ago along with Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, and Tarantino to make FOUR ROOMS.



Cerebus: RIP 1977-2004.
