A greenscreen set becomes a film noir universe in these exclusive 'Sin City 2' pictures

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is finally in theaters, close to a decade after the release of the first Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation. Back in 2005, co-director Robert Rodriguez’s decision to shoot the film mostly on greenscreens was seen as a wild gambit. Now, it’s practically par for the course that most major Hollywood productions will feature at least a few digital backlots.

Even so, it’s thrillingly weird to see how the Sin City filmmakers transform an empty set into a dark metropolis. That’s why EW is excited to share a few behind-the-scenes photos showing off how Sin City creates Sin City, with stars like Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Bruce Willis entering the digital comic-book universe.

Video: Jessica Alba gets a creepy makeover in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' clip

Jessica Alba is back as stripper Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But it appears as though Nancy’s been having a hard time since her mentor, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), committed suicide in the last film. In the new clip, we see her in the bathroom talking to her reflection. “Maybe I’ll prove both you wrong,” she says. “Maybe I’ll go crazy. Crazy’s sounding pretty good right now.” She then proceeds to chop off all of her hair with a pair of scissors.

The next time we see her, she’s sitting in a restaurant booth loading a revolver and sporting a new haircut and cuts all over her face as Mickey Rourke’s Marv approaches her.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on August 22.

Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sin again in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Legendary graphic novelist Frank Miller’s super-stylized gang of strippers and scoundrels is back on the big screen for four tales of pulpy intrigue in the 3-D neo-noir sequel Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (out Aug. 22).

Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan is still dancing at Kadie’s, but she’s changed since John Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death in the original 2005 cult classic. “She’s out for revenge,” says Miller, who co-directed the film. “She is sick of being treated — as she puts it — ‘as a piece of ass.'” Robert Rodriguez, who also returns to co-helm the project, adds: “You see a little girl in that first film. By the end of this, she’s the avenging angel.” Alba’s acting work has taken a backseat to other endeavors in the past few years, but Miller assures us that she is “eight times the actor [that she was] when I did the first film.”

'Sin City' 2 officially underway


After seven long years, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller announced today that a sequel to their 2005 hard-boiled noir thriller Sin City is officially underway. Titled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the film was developed by Miller from his graphic novel of the same name, and scripted by Miller and William Monahan (The Departed). Dimension Films will once again distribute the film.

Production is slated for this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas. Casting will start next week; according to the official release, much of the film’s original cast is expected to return — though the release didn’t specify if the characters who died in the first film would be popping up again.

Rodriguez has been teasing the prospect of Sin City sequel for almost a year, first at Comic-Con last summer, then at SXSW this spring.
