Robert Rodriguez entered H Hall stage at San Diego Comic-Con, and came ready to blow people’s minds. Even though people are already aware of his involvement with bringing Heavy Metal to theaters, he made some other exciting announcements on other film projects that are sure to make fans of his chuckle, and a good bit excited!
Rodriguez made sure to immediately thank his fans for all the support on his most recent film, Machete. He said that because of their support and great DVD sales, a sequel and plausible third film, have been green lit for production. The sequel for Machete will be titled Machete Kills, which was released at the end of the first film. If that film does as well as the first in the box-office, then he would really like to make a third film titled Machete Kills Again….“In Space”. Yeah you heard right, and yes he did say that. Of course, it is unsure as to whether he stated this jokingly or if he’s serious, but for now it isn’t too much to worry about.
Rodriguez then began to talk about Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, and said that if it happens it’ll more than likely start this year. It’ll feature three stories, one of which is the title, A Dame to Kill For, while the other two will be two new tales by Frank Miller. The only thing he revealed about these two new stories is that one of them will be titled The Long Bad Night, and if he gets to shoot the movie he’ll be doing it in 3D.
Finally Rodriguez’s new company Quick Draw, plans to team up with legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta for an eventual brand new film based on Fire and Ice, his early Eighties painting that was made into an animated film with Raplh Bakshi. No timeline has been given, but he is excited about trying to great this sci-fi film that will plunge audiences into the artist’s paintings, literally.
So with the following film projects in the works:
- Machete Kills
- Machete Kills Again….In Space (Ummm! Weird)
- Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
- Frank Frazetta’s Fire & Ice
Which do you think , other than Heavy Metal, will be in theaters first?
